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.

O-o-o-o-oh, Fudge!


May I tempt you to indulge in smooth, sweet and rich chocolate fudge filled with crunchy nuts? What if it is oozing caramel? Perhaps walnut fudge brownies in a sundae sounds more to your liking? Interested in rocking along with some Rocky Road Thick Fudge...NO bake? If any of those sound appealing to you, read on for they are only the beginning.

A Bit of Fudge History...
In 1886 a letter was found, written by Emelyn Bettersby Hartridge, a student at Vassar college in Poughkeepsie, New York, referring to fudge that her cousin had made, in Baltimore Maryland, selling it for 40 cents per pound.  Hartridge was able to obtain the recipe and in 1888, she made 30 pounds of fudge for the Vassar College Senior Auction.  
In the late 19th century, some shops on Mackinac Island, Michigan, began to produce similar products as the Vassar College fudge, and sold it to summer vacationers. Fudge is still produced in some of the original shops there today.

By the way, this recipe calls for almond butter & almond flour. If you think that does not count as nutty, then add some finely chopped almonds! Certainly can't go wrong!
