Savor Dallas: My Favorite Food Festival + Free Ticket Giveaway!

You know I attend most of the food and drink festivals and events in DFW, but the one I look forward to the most is this Saturday's annual Savor Dallas International Grand Tasting. I like this event best because it offers the biggest variety of food from so many of the top restaurants in DFW—plus wine, beer, and spirits—and all of it is all-you-can-eat/drink. Also, there are no stupid food coupons needed to buy each item. In the words of comedian, John Pinette, you can just, "grab and move, grab and move!" The only thing you need to bring is a very empty stomach because you can't possibly taste everything at this event!

My favorite chocolatier, Kate Weiser Chocolates, will be there!

How I Eat Well and Don't Gain Weight

With holiday eating starting one week from today, I thought now is a good time to publicly answer a question people have been asking me more often recently, "How are you not fat from eating all that great food you post?!"

I eat really great food, like this pie.
