I come from a big family back East. So big I can’t count how many might show up for a Family Reunion. But we can always count on Aunt Lena being there. She’s a big-hearted woman with an equally big Italian recipe file in her head. Why? Because she always said: Eat to live and live to love.
In fact, my Aunt Lena even published her own recipe book. One of my favorites takes me back to my childhood Christmases when we made these special Italian pastries. It’s an delightful treat made with simple ingredients found in almost every kitchen. So as her gift to you… here’s Aunt Lena’s Zeppole recipe so you can enjoy your very own.
