Strawberries with Cannoli Cream #SundaySupper

Summer Berry RecipesWe have an unbelievable amount of recipes for summer berries this week!
Finally, the warm weather is upon us!  Planting in our gardens, going to the farmer's markets and enjoying what is just the beginning of all good things summer!

I'm looking forward to making pickles, jams and of course, my simple pleasure - the first tomato sandwich from the garden!  My recipe for Strawberries with Cannoli Cream was given to me by a co-worker when my kids were in grade school.  You can make it as a parfait with crushed Amaretti cookies, serve it as a cool dip, or just with strawberries in small dessert cups.  There are over 45 recipes today! - who needs a cookbook?  Enjoy!
