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).

Tiny Hot Dogs: A Memoir in Small Bites Reviews
Very sweet and charming story. Mary is super funny too!
Mary Giuliani may just be the coolest and funniest person I've never heard of. No she's not related to THAT guy, and she may not be a celebrity like she wanted to be when she was a kid - but hot dog does her life makes for a fantastically funny book!
