Best Italian Mother's Day Recipes

Saturday, May 12, 2018
Mother's Day was always a unique and special day for me when my Mom was still alive. Every year I dedicate one of her favorite recipes to her. Although she lives on in my kitchen and many of yours, it will never be as sweet as the beautiful memories I have of her growing up and making something special. I was always proud to show her how well she taught me. She has been gone since 1999 but her spirit and love surrounds me in the kitchen. I decided to do this recipe round up in her memory. These are the Best Italian Mother's Day Recipes I made through years past and still today.

You can choose a Italian Specialty of your choice. We love all of these. Mom's favorite on Mother's Day was the cannoli french toast. It has to be made with Italian bread so don't substitute!
She also loved the greens and potato frittata. I use to like making a few of everything on the list all week long to celebrate Mother's Day. Check out this delicious menu and Happy Mother's Day to all mom's, grandmother's and loving stepmom's out there. Enjoy every moment you have with each other. It goes by fast.
