White Chocolate Panna Cotta w/ Summer Berries

Remembering my Mom today!

6 years ago today, my Mom passed on.
No person is perfect
 but for us she was just perfect ... the Best Mom ever.
I wanted to make her Pineapple Ice Box cake today but she never left me her recipe.
And no one in our family knows how to make it the way she does.

I chose this recipe to honor and remember her
because this is a perfect recipe that best describe her.

A Delicate, sweet, silky smooth, soft,
 and just a simply brightens your day
decadent dessert.

My Mom was soft spoken, gentle, sweet,
and always brings a smile in the room as she walks in.
And just like chocolate,
I can't do without her.

Miss you Mom!
Love you always.
