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.

Fruity, Flaky, Crispy & Creamy

Amazing August began with celebration of the raspberry as August 1 offered Pied Drupelets. With raspberries being as ancient as prehistoric times, that means a lot of recipes have been written incorporating these ruby red little gems for both the tart and sweet tastes.

August 11 is... 

National Raspberry Tart Day

A tart is usually made up of flaky, crispy crust, a creamy filling and topped with fresh fruit.  Raspberries are the perfectly balanced sweet and tart fruit. Tarts can be made savory with things like mushrooms and Gruyere or a multitude of fruits from other berries to apples and pear, but for today we celebrate them covered in raspberries.
