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 for breakfast to start the day.

Breakfast, brunch, or dinner, Mother's Day would be an all-day event for sure.

Although mom has since passed on, she always lives on in my kitchen, and as I am sure many of yours do.

I cherish the sweet wonderful memories we had together.

I was always proud to show her how well she taught me.

She has been gone since 1999 and I still make her favorites every year on Mother's Day and keep her memory alive.

I decided to do this recipe roundup in her memory. These are the Best Italian Mother's Day Recipes I made in years past and still do today.

You can choose an Italian Specialty of your choice.

We love all of these roundup recipes.

Mom's favorite on Mother's Day was the cannoli french toast, so that's a must-make every year.

It has to be made with Italian bread so don't substitute!

She also loved the greens with her 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 that was my mom's favorite.

Happy Mother's Day to all moms, grandmothers, and loving stepmoms who are out there.

Enjoy every moment you have with each other and make some delicious memories
