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.

POO-POO that Chocolate?

 for other foodie fun!            How are you celebrating Presidents' Day? 

WOW! POO-POO that Chocolate? Really? Being a chocolate lover, it is somewhat difficult to fathom someone NOT eating chocolate. It is so-o-o-o-o scrumptious plus being such a great energy booster. But, it is fact...NOT everyone loves or even likes chocolate. They much prefer the caramel, toffee or butterscotch flavors. Butterscotch and caramel are both cooked sugars, but regular caramel is made with melted granulated sugar and butterscotch with brown sugar. As for toffee, it has the same ingredients as butterscotch but is cooked longer until the hard cracked stage. With all that said, one of those three non-chocolatees is up for foodie fun.

February 15 is also...

National I Want Butterscotch Day

There is not a lot to be found about this day of celebration other than it provides a break from all the chocolate received and consumed (or non-consumed, still in the box) during Valentine's week. In addition, it gives those non-chocolatees delicious treats to enjoy from pudding to blondies, to bars to cake to cheesecake to cookies to fudge to brownies to sauce!
