I met Amy(The Stylist Effect) years ago in Connecticut. We were both attending Central Connecticut and clicked right away. We were both a little crazy back then and Italian. So right there that meant we’d be spending a lot of time together. On the weekends we would either head back to her parent’s house for some homemade fettuccine alfredo or stick around school. If we stayed at school for the weekend we always made a trip to this amazing Italian bakery in Hartford called Mozzicato Bakery. We would go for one thing and one thing only… Their bakery style pizza was off the charts! We would get as many slices as they had available and eat them cold out of the box all weekend. We were two Italian girls missing mom’s cooking, so a girl has got to eat! Right?
All these years later we decided to collaborate on an Easter blog. So, when I was thinking of what recipe I should share I thought about our love for our Italian family and our love for food!
This is a recipe based off of my Grandma’s Ricotta Pie. Ricotta Pie is also known as Italian Cheesecake and is traditionally served on Easter. I didn’t change much from my Grandma’s original recipe except that I baked it in a pie crust, removed the lemon juice and added chocolate chips.

Grandma's Ricotta Pie
Enjoy and Hoppy Easter 🐰
A perfect Easter meal for me would start with an appetizer of Stuffed Mushrooms and an Italian Salad. The main course would be Lasagna Rolls. Of course ending with Grandma’s Ricotta Pie. Figuring out what to cook is the easy part, but what to wear I need help with. That’s where Amy comes in. She makes every outfit look effortless and classy. You can find Amy on Instagram @amy_guzzi_. She chose the perfect Easter outfit for a beautiful Spring day…
