The Perfect Mother's Day Gift: Gourmet Monthly Club Subscription

Looking for the perfect Mother's Day gift? If so, today is your lucky day! There's no doubt mom's are special and they deserve much more than a bouquet of flowers and afternoon brunch. The Gourmet Monthly Club recognizes the need to reward mom all year long with gifts that are certain to please!

The Gourmet Monthly Club offers monthly subscriptions of chocolate, cheese, flowers, wine, beer and cigars. Now, I realize most moms don't smoke cigars, but if they do the cigar subscription is a great gift! Otherwise, keep this gift idea in mind for Father's Day.


Gourmet-chocolate-of-the-month-clubMost moms love chocolate and the Chocolate of the Month subscription will provide your mom with ooey, gooey goodness for months to come! Each month your mom will receive a box of handcrafted chocolates made by world renowned chocolatiers, along with a newsletter detailing the origins of the cocoa beans, how the chocolates are made, and how to make homemade chocolate confections.

 The International Wine of the Month Club provides mom with two bottles of award-winning international wine selections each month. Three wine subscriptions are available which allow you to select two red wines, two white wines or one red and one white.  This club allows recipients to discover rare, estate-bottled wines at great values each month.

Caribbean Caesar Chicken Salad

Caribbean Caesar Chicken Salad is one of my all-time favorite summer salad recipes. It's super easy to throw together and low in calories. You can have it for lunch or dinner and can serve the chicken hot or cold. Whenever I bake chicken breasts for dinner, I like to bake a few extra so I can add them to salads. Preparing the chicken ahead of time greatly reduces the prep time!
