Last week we introduced two of the four new Chef Tess Meals in a Jar Videos that we have made, Chef Tess’ delicious Thai Chicken in Spicy Peanut Sauce and her amazing Hawaiian-Style Teriyaki Beef and Vegetables. You can view at our blog post.

Today, we’re showing the final two of the four videos we’ve created, a two-meals in one personal Meals in a Jar video, and, just in time for the holidays, a Mango-Berry Cobbler Dessert in a Jar, the perfect Holiday gift for friends, neighbors, and family. Enjoy!
