Boston Bakes 2011 was dedicated to the memory of our friend Colleen O’Farrell who we saw each year when we would visit the Fox 25 studio in Dedham during the week of Boston Bakes.

But Jenny needs no education. She is a pro at shooting the segments, knows what she wants the segments to be, what needs to be taped and the shots …
