Sista Felicia’s Favorite Picks for Filling Easter Baskets Locally!



The Seven day countdown to Easter Sunday begins tomorrow!


Planning for the holiday is well underway. The house is officially decorated, and our Easter Brunch menu is set! It’s now time to start the Easter baking and basket making! Thursday while shopping for ingredients at Virgilios Bakery I was inspired to fix a few traditional and “non-traditional” Easter baskets using items sold at local stores that I shop often. This year I’m looking forward to surprising friends and family with a few of my favorite things tucked into the decorative Easter Baskets my loved ones look forward to receiving each year! Over the next several days I will share my theme basket ideas highlighting items I adore sold at local business. 

Get ready to think in and out of the basket!



Starting off this week’s Sista Dish Easter Basket Blog Series off with a basket created for the special cook in your life. If you are looking to create a special gift for the hostess preparing your celebratory Easter meal this year, stop by The Cave and seek owner Laura Cramer’s expert help selecting the perfect items to tantalize the pallet of your Easter chef!  

Laura Cramer Owner of “The Cave” Writes ~ The Cave is filled with an incredible amount of cheese. Blues, double & triple cremes, cheddars, classic Italian, & so many more. Foie gras, pate, olives, spreads, smoked fish & salami too. A bounty of chocolate & confections also just in. Come by for a taste. Open 10-5





 All items displayed in this hostess theme basket, are items sold at “The Cave” on Gloucester’s Main Street.


Sista Felicia’s Cookbook for sale while supply last…


Note~ Easter basket embellishments were shopped locally at “The Dollar Store” located in Gloucester Crossing Plaza. Easter Basket was selected from my personal basket collection.

Wine will be on sale starting April 1, 2015

Don’t forget to pick up a wedge of “Rat Cheese” at The Cave and follow my Step-by-Step Recipe for a delicious “Lent Friendly” Homemade Mac & Cheese!

Pet of the Week- Emmie

Looking for a sweet and lovable lady with plenty of personality?  Well your search is over!


I love to play and do not act my age. I am a fool for canine companions and everyone I meet always says I am very, very sweet and a little goofy!   If you are interviewing for a “best friend” and a “great family dog” position then be sure to call me in because I could be the perfect fit!

I Never Knew

I can’t even begin to count how many times I have walked by this sign without bothering to read it.  So, the other day, I did.  I’m not sure why it never occurred to me that there was an actual bear associated with Bearskin Neck.  Felt bad for the bear, but glad to have learned something new.

Spring is Here and So Is the Annual River Herring Count!

Message from Cape Ann Vernal pond Team:


Phone: 978-282-8018

Each spring for over 10 years, the City of Gloucester, the Eight Towns and the Great Marsh Committee, and NOAA-NMFS have coordinated the annual river herring (alewife) count at the top of the fish ladder by the West Gloucester Water Filtration Plant on Essex Avenue.

Volunteer monitors help scientists by observing and documenting the spring run of herring as they migrate from their home in the Atlantic Ocean to their freshwater spawning grounds. This is a wonderful activity for interested individuals, families, youth organizations and students who want to play an active part in local conservation efforts. Learning to become a volunteer monitor is easy and the time spent observing can require as little as ten minutes of your day.

This year’s count will take place from April 1st to May 30th.

A training session will be held on Saturday March 28th at 9:00 A.M. in the
Friend Room of the Sawyer Free Library.

If you would like to become a volunteer monitor and help efforts to protect this important species, please contact:

Dave Sargent/ Alewife Warden @ 978-282-8018 –
or Max Schenk @ 978-282-8025 –

Time coverage is the key to a successful count and any time you can give will make a difference!

Hi Joey,

Thanks for posting my rabbit dilemma. Your readers were generous with their suggestions. 

Have you been by Good Harbor beach parking lot? Hard to imagine someone hasn’t sent you pictures – I may have missed it. It looks like the moon. I couldn’t resist pulling over today to catch this guy climbing the mountain of snow that is very very slowly melting. Good luck with opening the lot by March 31…
