Torta di Riso recipe, an Easter tradition

The Easter season is one of my favorite times of the year. It's about reflection, quiet joy and renewal, the promise of rebirth and hope. No coincidence that Easter usually falls in the early spring. To me, spring is also about rebirth, renewal and hope.

One of the things that my family looks forward to each year at Easter time is enjoying the many traditional Italian baked goods associated with the season. They’re not fancy. There’s no Swiss meringue, chocolate ganache, puff pastry towers or spun sugar decorations in the lot. Just simple, rustic goodness made by loving hands and warm hearts. One of my family’s favorites is Torta di Riso.
