Di Falco starts the recipe’s accompanying blog with a Mother’s Day wish for all the moms out there. “My Mom wanted me to figure out how to recreate a dessert we had at a Mediterranean restaurant in Montclair,” she writes. “We had discussed what was in it with the waitress, and I did my best to recreate here!”
