You know what would be a pretty unforgettable Mother's Day gift for mom?

One BIG family trip to Italy — which is exactly what these two sibling duos competed for in our 2018 "Mother's Day Cook-Off!"

The kids — Melanie and Emily from Secaucus, New Jersey, and Vanessa and Ryan from Jersey City, New Jersey — whipped up their respective moms' best meals for a chance to win a family trip to Italy.
