Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

No! No! No! Blonde Brownie Girl Scouts do not have their own special day! This is the unique spin on the old-fashioned chocolate brownie: Golden "blonde" brownies with pure brown sugar, butter and vanilla creating a caramelesque, butterscotchy flavor.

Here are a few from which you can make a choice...
