Tiny Hot Dogs By Mary Giuliani

From awkward schoolgirl to Caterer to the Stars, Mary Giuliani weaves together a collection of hilarious memories, from professional growing pains to her long journey to motherhood, never losing her sense of humor and her love for everyone's favorite party food, pigs in a blanket.Mary's utterly unremarkable childhood was everything she didn't want: hailing from a deeply loving yet overprotective Italian family in an all-Jewish enclave on Long Island. All she wanted was to fit in (be Jewish) and become famous (specifically a cast member on Saturday Night Live). With an easy, natural storytelling sensibility, Mary shares her journey from a cosseted childhood home to the stage and finally to the party, accidentally landing what she now refers to as "the breakthrough role of a lifetime" catering to a glittery list of stars she once hoped to be part of herself.

Fresh, personal, and full of Mary's humorous, self-deprecating, and can-do attitude against all odds, you'll want to see where each shiny silver tray of hors d'oeuvres takes her next. You never know when the humble hot dog will be a crucial ingredient in the recipe for success, in building a business or simply making life more delicious.

My Thoughts...

I must start out by saying I won this book from the wonderful Suzy from I was thrilled I love Mary and Rachel Ray can't say enough great things about her so you know she is the greatest.
I got this in the mail sat down right there on my steps and started reading it. I laughed so hard when she told where to find her first book in the book store. You have to read that it is in the chapter titled Lists. 
There are some good recipes in this book and the stories are great.
I gave this book 5 stars and I HIGHLY recommend it. It would make a super hostess gift, Just saying.
Thank You Suzy. This made my week. I just had to share this with everyone.
