Delicious mushrooms make this Brie sing! I shared this recipe on a local radio program called ‘Quick ‘n Delicious’ that I hosted every week for 3 years. I always had so much fun with the host and I LOVED sharing my recipes, listen to the radio ‘bit’ on my Blog if you want to hear the recipe…oh and the hosts and I carrying on!
