I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of your Mom. I always admired her. My Mother Carmela Roffo always admired your Mom for her classiness and elegance. Her baking talents were unsurpassed! I'm proud to say Antoinette taught me one of the favorites at my Mom's house a long time ago. I think of your beautiful Mom every time I bake my ciamelle. May she Rest In Peace. My condolences go out to your family.
