Oh man, I want to try so many of these recipes! I was lucky enough to go to Italy a few years ago and all of the food was delicious--but now I feel like I missed out since I only had gelato for dessert. Luckily, it looks like these recipes have a real taste of Italy!

These all look so great, especially the Zeppole Italian Doughnuts!

My grandma would be proud if I made that tiramisu pie.

These all look incredible! I can't decide which one I'll make first!
