Mother's Day is Coming Up

"But there's a story behind everything. How a picture got on a wall. How a scar got on your face. Sometimes the stories are simple, and sometimes they are hard and heartbreaking. But behind all your stories is always your mother's story, because hers is where yours begin.” 
― Mitch Albom, For One More Day

Raspberry Brie Grilled Cheese Sandwich

8 slices crusty bread (such as rosemary, whole grain, peasant or sourdough)
1/4 – 1/2 cup Red Raspberry Jam (Pick Up Your Jar At Bonnes Amies)
12 ounces Brie cheese, sliced
2-4 Tablespoons melted butter or light olive oil

Place bread slices on a clean work surface. Generously spread the Raspberry Jam over four slices of bread. Top with Brie cheese and finish with another slice of bread. Butter or oil the outer sides of bread.
Saute sandwiches over medium heat until golden brown on both sides and the cheese has melted. A panini maker can also be used. Cut sandwiches in half and serve.
Enjoy the tantalizing flavor of sun ripened red raspberries all year long with Red Raspberry Jam. One taste will bring back memories of fun visits to pick-your-own raspberry farms. This sweet and slightly tart red raspberry jam livens up any bread or dessert. Mix it in oatmeal or surprise someone by drizzling some over vanilla ice cream. Wouldn't some red raspberry jam taste good right now?
