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, MORE Fudgie Madness!

On May 11, O-o-o-o-oh, Fudge! celebrated National Nutty Fudge Day. Since the nutty fudge requires fudge as its star with nuts as an added attraction one might think the celebration of that 'fudge' would have been just fudge...chocolate in the buff so to speak. That thought begs the question, "What is your first image when someone asks you if you like fudge?" Fudge actually comes in a variety of flavors, with and without nuts, with some of the most popular fudge flavors being chocolate, chocolate nut, peanut butter, maple, and maple nut. Regardless which you prefer, the 'fudge' is always rich, creamy, decadent sweet madness!

Soon after this day's fudgie celebration (in July actually) will be even more chocolate fudge madness...National Penuche Fudge Day and National Hot Fudge Sundae Day. By that time, the fudge in the fudge celebrations should be perfect-o.

June 16 is...
National Fudge Day

Did you know that before refrigeration, homemakers would make fudge as a way of storing extra sugar, molasses, and maple syrup?

Modern fudge recipes remain largely unaltered. On National Fudge Day, why not try making your own fudge? You can use a basic recipe or be creative...use your imagination and come up with a totally new crazy flavor! You could also make it straight or experiment with one that is boozy. Go for it!
