Easter is this Sunday and many families are stocking up on their holiday favorites. For more than 90 years, the same family in South Philadelphia has been making authentic Italian specialties and at the Easter season, they are busy baking thousands of Easter treats.

"It's the tradition," Jennifer Commale of Norristown told us. "It's when you walk in the door you feel like you are part of the family."

Faithful Termini Brothers customers like Marge Calvanese, who has been coming here for 50 years, know they only make these authentic Italian Easter specialties once a year.

Vince Termini shows off his 4 different and distinct Easter pies; a sort of culinary tour of Italy.

"My father learned the trade in Sicily," Vince tells us, "and when he came here he took all of his recipes with him in 1921."

Today his sons, Vincent and Joseph - the third generation, are keeping the Termini tradition rolling 90 years later.

"We don't deviate anything from the original recipes."
