Mom’s have a knack for always giving and very rarely receiving. They cook, clean, offer emotional and physical support (Mom hugs are the best hugs) and are essentially just awesome. If you’re like me though, you probably don’t show your appreciation for, or acknowledge, their sacrifices enough. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a great one-on-one date with your mom at home for Mother’s Day instead of stressing over restaurant reservations or gifts? I think so! That’s why I’m excited to announce that I’ve partnered with some great people to bring you a Mother’s Day treat to top them all!
Patricia Kiernan is a Jamaican native and has built her company Stir It Up Cuisine around the art of Caribbean cooking. Each meal that she prepares captures the authenticity and flavor that you would expect from a Caribbean dish. But Patricia doesn’t stop there! She has even extended her reach to include gourmet jellies (maybe the most delicious that I’ve ever tasted!) that are available for you to purchase and use in your own meal preparation.
To properly present the Stir It Up Jelly in all it’s glory, I enlisted the help of Dan Whalen of The Food In My Beard. Dan is an exceptional cook and renowned “foodie,” boasting several television appearances and a published book of delicious recipes! He came up with a killer baked brie recipe that you can make for Mother’s Day or any other event that calls for an easy appetizer.
