hello everybody . are you all ready for Easter ? what will you be doing ? I will be at my brother's house celebrating . I will probably make Easter cookies and bring them over . the Italian tradition for Easter is that we eat lamb . then we also have a traditional dessert that is called pastiera .it's a big pie made with ricotta cheese . I don't make it , but my sis in law usually makes it . I have never made it myself . but looking forward to having some fun time with family . hope everybody has a blessed Easter .. whatever you are doing !
