Mary’s Rizogalo

KO’s latest video offers 2 recipes – the first is a beautiful rizogalo (rice pudding) recipe shared by the talented cook and cookbook author Mary Valle. Mary’s rizogalo has the perfect combination of al-dente rice bathed in sweet, creamy milk and seasoned necessarily with cinnamon. It is simple and delicious and you will definitely want to add this to your cooking repertoire!

The other recipe we are sharing with you is ‘the recipe of life’! The recipe of life combines three essential ingredients: purpose, passion and perseverance, and seasons them liberally with serendipity and chutzpah. Mary Valle’s story of becoming a cookbook author and workshop facilitator embodies this recipe perfectly – a journey where life offered Mary natural opportunities to explore her interests; required her to remain focused and persistent; and challenged her to push through openings requiring a leap of faith and steadfast gutsiness!

Watch Mary’s video and learn about both recipes… and Mary’s hidden talent!
