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.

Brownie OVERLOAD...not necessarily chocolate!

When you see or hear the word 'brownie', two things possibly come to mind. 'Brownie' Girl Scouts and the old-fashioned chocolate brownie. Now, I would dare say the latter is more likely to be at the top of the list. For today's foodie fun, the word of the day is brownie but instead of chocolate, this brownie oozes brown sugary butterscotch.

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

'Blondie' OVERLOAD Cupcakes (Recipe)

Butterscotch brownies are sometimes called "blondies" because of their caramel color, rather than the traditional dark chocolate brown.
