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.

Just a dollop will do ya'...maybe!

Messiness is part of the picture!                                             Short & Sweet

Things You May NOT Know About Whipped Cream
  • It's origin is old having been around since the 16th century!
  • It was once called "milk snow".
  • Early recipes called for whipping the cream with a willow or rush branch.
  • For the cream to whip, temp must be under 50 degrees, else you have butter!
  • Tallest dollop of whipped cream: 7 1/4 ins topping off a mug of cocoa

Slices of Pumpkin Pie & Key Lime Pie, Ice Cream Sundaes & Banana Splits, Mugs of Hot Cocoa & Egg Nog Lattes are absolutely naked without the luxurious dollop...or two or three...of fluffy whipped cream! 

Whether one likes whipped cream squirted straight out those nifty aerosol cans, or prefers the more traditional version of whisking cream by hand, whipped cream is truly one of those little delights in life that deserves a bit of praise and recognition. Whipped Cream Day provides the perfect excuse to indulge in a sweet treat with a generous portion of creaminess on top.
