A popular sweet treat sold at street fairs and carnivals here. A family tradition for the holidays, especially Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve. Will bring good luck if eaten at midnight. It originated in Naples, Italy, as did my grandma who made them. I don't have her recipe, but Giada's sounds really good, too.
Zeppole, to celebrate the Letter Z, at Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday.
