Farfalle with tomatoes, basil, mozzarella
Our daughter and her fiance met John Serock at an open house at a wedding venue and sampled some of his food there. She thought his food was tasty and creative which is just what we are looking for since we have a group of vegetarians and some gluten free guests attending the wedding. 

We want to have plenty of tasty creative options for everyone to eat, so we had a tasting back in December at his location in West Chester, Pa.

Cassidy, the events specialist, couldn't have been sweeter! She will help us plan the menu, create a wedding day timeline, make a floor plan for the venue, coordinate with other venders and oversee the entire event. She will also help us choose from the 56 colors available for the tablecloths and napkins!

We began our tasting with three vegetarian appetizer choices, brie and raspberry tarts, spinach triangles and crostini with red pepper goat cheese. All three were yummy especially the spinach triangles!!!

We all loved them! They will definitely be on our menu with all their delicious flakiness.

Next came the non vegetarian appetizers, which I did not partake in, baby burgers, which looked adorable, mini potatoes with bacon and blue cheese, and sesame chicken satay with sweet chili dipping sauce. The baby burgers and the potatoes were a big hit with the meat eating crowd.

Pasta entrees came out next. We are planning on having a pasta station. We tried the farfalle with plum tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and basil (it's the pic at the top of this post), and penne a la vodka. OMG!!! They both were scrumptious!!! They are on the menu for sure. I can't wait to eat them again!

Some meat/fish options for the carving station came out next. Grilled salmon with cucumber riata, southwestern marinated cowboy steak with horseradish sauce and roasted short ribs. The meat eaters gave two thumbs up to the short ribs.
grilled veggies & fingerling potatoes John Serock Catering
Some delicious grilled vegetables with a balsamic drizzle and roasted fingerling potatoes were also brought out which would be served as side dishes at the carving station. Both were quite delicious!

Our tasting ended with a little sweet, a delicious little cake pop.

A wedding cake from the Master's Baker is included in the package. It is also located in West Chester, PA. My sister's wedding cake was from the Master's Baker. Their cake was a beautiful shaved white chocolate cake. That was way back in the early 90s. My brother-in-law still visits the Master's Baker frequently for pieces of cake! It's his favorite bakery.

White Bumps Under Eyes: Milia

Have you noticed that you have little white looking bumps under your eyes? Some people call it chicken skin because the bumps look like plucked chicken skin. πŸ” Most likely those little white bumps are milia. They can feel hard or pearly. These bumps are not acne. Milia can occur when dead skin cells become trapped beneath the outer layer of skin. Keratin becomes trapped and builds up. A small benign cyst can form which is the milia. It's a cyst!?! Don't let that word scare you. They are harmless, but unwanted bumps.  They can occur on any area of the skin that tends to be on the dry side. They cannot be squeezed out like a blackhead or pimple because they have no opening. A layer of skin covers them. A hole must be created in them using a needle, then they can be extracted out.

This post is all about dermatofibromas and some remedies to help make them look better and ways hide them. It includes my Amazon Affiliate Links to help you find the products I talk about. Q. I have this brown bump on my leg that won't go away. What can I do about it? A. It could be a dermatofibroma. I see them often on my leg waxing clients. A dermatofibroma is a tan to brown benign raised bump more common in women than men and occur commonly on the legs. The bump feels hard under the skin and can be itchy, tender and easily irritated. A doctor will tell you not to worry about it because it's benign, but it's kind of ugly! Dermatofibromas are also called Benign Fibrous Histiocytomas. They are the result of some sort of injury to the skin such as an ingrown hair or a bug bite.  Be careful when shaving because a dermatofibroma may bleed and become sore if nicked. Don't think you can get rid of it by shaving it off. It will be an awful looking sore and will j

Why does my lipstick change color on my lips?

So, you found a gorgeous shade of peachy nude lipstick.... right on trend. It looks amazing in the lipstick tube but when you put it on, it turns orange within 15 minutes!  It happens to me all the time. Pigments in the lipstick react with the chemistry of the skin and change color. This color shift is due to the pH of the skin. Our skin has an acidic pH of 4.5 to 5.5. It varies slightly from person to person which is why lipstick changes on some people and not others.  The oil, sweat and bacteria on our skin create a protective layer called the acid mantle with its pH of 4.5 to 5.5. The acid mantle can change due to how we treat our skin.  The skin pH can change due to the environment.  The sun, as well as pollution, can affect skin's pH.  What we eat can affect the pH of our skin.  Sweating and cosmetic products can also change pH.  The skin will always try to get back to 4.5-5.5 no matter how we abuse it.  Use gentle pH balanced skin care products, eat a healthy diet w
