I sampled the apple cake over the weekend, just one of hundreds of dishes Felicia prepared for two intense days of non-stop shooting in preparation for her forthcoming cookbook. Oh my, is it worth the cost of the cookbook for this recipe alone!!!

Felicia, Craig, Hannah, and Pat
Yesterday afternoon I popped over to Felicia’s to find her and her fantastic team getting ready to launch Felicia’s Kickstarter program for her first cookbook. Craig Kimberley was shooting Felicia’s Kickstarter video and there was a mountain of food styled by Craig and Felicia, with Pat and Hannah providing assistance. Craig has created many cooking shows and he knew exactly how he wanted to film Felicia’s wonderful cooking demonstrations. It was lots of fun watching the two of them working at what they both love to do–Felicia cooking and Craig directing and shooting–and I was so glad to have had my camera with!
Help Felicia–I was too busy eating these tantalizing beauties and forgot to ask the name?
The cake is made with almond paste, which makes them perfectly moist, apricot preserves between the layers, then topped with a paper thin layer of rich dark chocolate on both the top and bottom–and yes, I am happy to report, this recipe is going to be in her cook book!
Felicia and I are embarking on a project together. She has been very patient while I get all my “stuff ” done–work I need to accomplish during the winter months to make all landscape design and film projects flow more smoothly throughout the year. Look at this gorgeous Blueberry Lemon Tea Cake that she dropped off to help hurry me along. Believe me when I say, the cake tasted as scrumptious as it looks. Good thing I snapped a photo the minute it was brought in from the porch because when I returned to have a slice, the cake was half eaten. I am so looking forward to the publication of Felicia’s first cookbook!
Thank you Felicia!

Lucky Mom Post #2 and Lucky Friend!
I hope you are not hungry while looking at the following mouth-watering deliciousness. I am straight out with work and again came home to the most fabulous dinner–Son Alex’s deluxe veggie delight Swiss burger.
On our porch table I discovered a Sista Felicia-super-surprise-melt-in-your-mouth chocolate-concoction-Halloween-treat. Did I mention I am very blessed with both thoughtful son and dear friend? Thank you Felicia and Alex for a double whammy of deliciousness!
TheFox 25 Zip Trip to Gloucester flowed beautifully and was so well-organized by the Zip Trip Team. The challenges of producing live television are many and, I imagine, ten times more demanding when broadcasting from a different Massachusetts town each week. All went perfectly; seemingly without a hitch. The newscasters were inundated with fans and gifts, the producers countless hurdles, and all the while the cameramen were trying to film in an open setting dodging everyone who was running in and out. Despite these many challenges, the newscasters and production team were gracious, considerate, professional, and patient. Thank you Sarah Unis and the Fox 25 Zip Team for visiting Gloucester!

VB looks skeptical!
Joe was asked to represent Gloucester in the live trivia segment. He did beautifully, or as he would say, “Boom, we nailed it!”
