I have 1.5 year old (from about July 2015) frozen beef suet in my freezer. It's vacuum packed, never been opened or defrosted, and I need to get started on a Christmas Pudding. Is the old suet safe? If so, will it have any negative effects on the pudding? [more inside]

My SO loves rice pudding, and I would love to make him some. But I don't have a good recipe or know any secret techniques for making it come out fantastic. Can you help? I'm a good cook, but have never made pudding from scratch before, so keep it simple if you can, okay?

Smooth banana pudding? Years ago I cooked a banana pudding that was made from scratch with ordinary ingredients, yet fairly easy (stovetop, no double boiler), but I've lost the recipe. Most the recipes I've found on the web so far call for instant pudding mix (icky), and all are giving directions for what is basically a custard with sliced bananas in it, instead of the smooth "banana creme" pudding I'm remembering. Do you have a recipe for something like this? Or alternatively, something using bananas that's so good, it's going to make me forget all about that silly old "smooth pudding" recipe?
