This past weekend, I was asked to provide a Sweet Table for a 50th Anniversary party. Not knowing if I could put out a spread for 125 people, I turned to the only person that I know who could make it happen with grace and enjoyment: Mom.

Mom worked as a cook/baker and pastry associate in several local tea rooms. Having had her own catering business for over 30 years, she never advertised and did it all through recommendations and word of mouth.

Everything in her kitchen is homemade and from scratch - the way it was taught to her by my Great-Grandmother, Sebastiana, from Sicily. 450 delectable sweets later, I picked up the order and assembled it at the local yacht club where the party was to be held.

Thanks, Mom....for always lending a hand!

Thanks, Kristine for the referral! It meant a lot that you thought of us!

Katie, it wasn't my mom's was an Anniversary party and my mom made the desserts for the people who celebrated. Sorry for any confusion!

Thanks for looking everyone!
