I watched a great chick flick tonight called Chocolat with Johnny Depp and Juliette Binoche. It somehow managed to fly under my feminine radar when it was first released in 2000. I found it perched atop a shelf in a nearby library among hundreds of other titles.

I’d recommend it to anyone of you, women, who are intoxicated with chocolate and France (set in a fictional village called Lansquenet-sous-Tannes). Parts of it reminded me of a Hallmark movie (fortunately only small segments), but the chocolate and romance made up for the cheese–or maybe the romance was part of the cheese.

Anyway, still playful and delicious. As I am typing this, I have near my laptop, an assortment of positively sinful, Godiva chocolates (thanks to my sister-in-law and her family).I am savoring each one, yet, only the dark truffles ignite passion (seriously ;-)).

So, enjoy the movie and be sure to have some decadent chocolates on hand prior to watching. If you didn’t crave them before, you will after!
