Holy Cannoli's

Jason and Jarom recently went to NY for our sweet niece Ella's baby blessing. They had a a seriously fun time and poor Jarom hated to leave his NY cousins. Trust me many tears were shed as he left Angie and Abby. We can't wait to see them next year. The best part of their trip is that my sweet husband brought me back my favorite cannolis. yum. Just the thought of them now makes my mouth water. I first had a "real" cannoli when we went out for Abby's blessing in 2004 and well, I have missed them. I just couldn't enjoy their yumminess and not blog about it. This was also the first time that Michael had a cannoli. It was also love at first bite. He wanted to stay up and eat the whole thing. That may have been just a strategy to get to stay up later, but it didn't work. He went to bed and Jason and I enjoyed our own cannolis in peace. It was HEAVEN. If you are ever on Long Island make sure to get yourself a yummy cannoli, you can thank me later ;).

I do in fact know that cannoli's are sold ALL over, especially in that part of the USA, but it wouldn't be the same as THIS cannoli and you would be sad. True Story!!

#1 : Is that where the phrase comes from

#2 : What the heck is in a cannoli, I've never seen one before let alone tasted.

Katie a cannoli is a beautiful, sweet gift from the confectionary gods! Its a fried pastry shell that is delish, with the sweetest ricotta/cream cheese filling. These have chocolate chips in them as well-bonus! I would assume that is where that phrase comes from, because in some parts of the world a cannoli is a holy thing ;)
