A low-fat Strawberry Cannoli

Here's a link to an article that features a recipe for stuffed strawberries that sounds incredibly good. Yes, I am a cannoli fan, though I haven't had one for a long, long, long, long, long time. At any age, what goes on first comes off last, but in your forties it comes off dead last.

One of the commenters of the article, however, seemed to have a very good point, which was this: dark chocolate might be best as an ingredient. Actually, the health benefits of dark chocolate have been in the news quite a bit in recent years (even recently, it was reported that dark chocolate can be good for helping to keep belly fat off). So, if you're going to eat chocolate, which has a fantastic effect on endorphin levels (apparently, the effect, according to one study, is that it "lights up" your brain better than sex), go for dark chocolate.

On the subject of strawberries, I'll say that I really love them. They're just so hard to find in terms of quality. You know what I mean. You bring home a container of strawberries and after opening the packaging you find that they're already heading south. Either that, or they fall into decline within a couple of days. What's up with that? Do these things come from so far away that, by the time I buy them, they're scheduled to expire?
