Leave the gun. Take the cannoli.

Feeling like a little something sweet last night I whipped up this quick, protein-packed dessert. Think: Inside of a cannoli. It was yummy.

Shelly's Limoncello Ricotta Dessert

1/2 cup Ricotta
2 Tablespoons Sugar Free Torani Syrup (I used SF Vanilla)
2 Tablespoons Limoncello (Lemon Liqueur)
Sliced Almonds

Whiz ricotta, syrup and limoncello together in a mini food processor till light and airy. Spoon into glasses and top with berries and nuts. Makes 2.

This is perfect for after an Italian dinner.

Don't have Limoncello? Try another liqueur and fruit combo: Frangelico & Strawberries, Amaretto & Cherries, Grand Marnier & Strawberries.

Yep, there is booze in this dessert but it's 2 T's worth of alcohol for 2 desserts so I doubt anyone will be catching a buzz but you know some Dr's say NO to booze so as always be sure you follow your medical posse's advice.

Highlights of the Day:

* I realized that most of my absolute favorite things to do are free or super cheap. I love that.

* Loving this web site that helps you identify songs heard on TV or in movies. Super cool.

* Right now (despite the ungodly hour I have awoken.) Sipping a cup of hot Ceylon tea with a splash of SF Vanilla Torani. Fuzzy Blanket. Surfing the net. Listening to tunes.
