Tirimisu for Mothers

   Did you know that Tirimisu is a mother’s food?  It was invented (according to legend, anyway) by an Italian grandmother, whose daughter had just had a baby.  The daughter was exhausted from pregnancy, labor, and newborn life.  The grandmother thought, “My daughter needs a pick me up!”  So she invented Tirimisu–which means “Pick me up” in Italian–throwing a little coffee, a little rum, and a little sugar together as a light and fluffy treat.
    I just made some from scratch and THIS mother of a newborn–exhausted from pregnancy, labor, and newborn life–was more than refreshed!
    “Pick me up,” anytime!
