More of Me to Love

February's Letter from the Editor

We all know that diamonds are supposed to be a girl’s best friend. However, for many ladies in the area, the question of what to get the man in their life this Valentine’s Day is still up in the air.

Of course, I can’t speak for all men, but if you know me like my wife and kids do, then you know that chocolate and I are the very best of friends.  Dark chocolate, milk chocolate, chocolate covered and even chocolate kisses—no matter the form, chocolate has a special place in my heart (and unfortunately around my waist).

So, when Southlake Style decided to examine the best chocolate desserts in the area—you can guess who was first in line with a fork in hand. This month’s feature Sweets for the Sweetwas definitely a labor of love.  During my “research,” I became schooled in soufflé, informed on icing and ultimately gained some panache in ganache.  

In the end, I gained a few pounds and learned a little more about myself in the process. For instance, I can be quite generous when the moment is right, like when I order the enormous Chocolate Bag at Truluck’s.  I can show restraint by ordering the petite Dolchino at Brio Tuscan Grille, and I can be playful with Chocolate Jenga at the new FnG Eats in Keller.

Yes, my affection for confection knows no bounds. Fortunately, this assignment couldn’t have come at a better time. For this month there is even more of me to love.

Yours in Southlake Style...
