Cannoli Siciliani ... the perfect way to say Thank You on Mother's Day xx

Cannoli Siciliani ……. with love on Mother’s Day

This is a time that makes me reflect on the many ‘mothers’ I have known. And I use the word ‘mother’ in a very broad sense. One does not have to give birth to be a mother. I have been ‘mothered’ by so many incredible women over the years. I think of the many ‘nannies’ […]
