In Honor Of Columbus Day: ITALIAN DESSERT IDEAS! (No, Really…)

Columbus Day is this coming Monday, October 8th; It is the day in which we celebrate the anniversary of Christopher Columbus arriving in the Americas on October 12th, 1492. Not surprisingly, the holiday has been observed by many Italian-Americans as a celebration of their heritage, and New York City was where the very first such celebration was held on October 12th, 1866. Through the lobbying of a man in Denver by the name of Angelo Noce, who is a first-generation Italian, Columbus Day became enshrined as a legal holiday in the United States, while the very first statewide holiday had been proclaimed by Jesse F. McDonald, a Colorado governor, in 1905, and it was then made a statutory holiday in 1907.
