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.

Mighty Morsels! Callin' all Cookie Lovers!


Chip off the 'Whole' Block boasted celebration on May 15 of National Chocolate Chip Day. Chip, chip, chipping away a whole block (square) of chocolate laid the foundation for enjoying chocolate chips in a multitude of recipes. One of the all-time favorites chocked full of the mighty chocolate morsels is the topic of today's celebration. 

August 4 is...

Chocolate Chip Cookie Day

not just any cookie, but THE ultimate cookie!
Featured on Massachusetts: Not just any fish story!

What do you do on Chocolate Chip Cookie Day? The answer to that question is indeed a no-brainer...You EAT chocolate chip cookies! But, before the eating comes acquiring. Which route do you prefer?
*Do you go to the local grocery, walk to the cookie aisle and fumble through the dozens upon dozens of cookie brands? Even looking only for chocolate chip doesn't take your eyes just to one kind.
*Do you visit the bakery section of the grocery hoping to find chocolate chip among the many varieties available that day or perhaps make a visit to a local bakery specializing in its chocolate chip cookie being the best in the land?
*Do you waltz over to the refrigerator section looking for the slice-'n'-bake? At least these fill the kitchen with that awesome aroma of fresh-baked cookies. You don't get that out of the box or package!

OR Better than any of the suggestions above, 
BAKE YOUR OWN CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES! 
Just think about it! Baking your own allows you to nibble, nibble, nibble on those mighty chocolate morsels throughout all the preparation and baking processes! What about the aroma? OMG! Makes you want to eat a dozen right off the baking sheet!

Before we get down to recipe time, keep in mind there is absolutely madness surrounding the numerous types of chocolate chip cookies. Which kind do you have in mind...the original Toll House, dark chocolate, white chocolate, with nuts, without nuts, double chocolate, triple chocolate, stuffed, soft batch, chewy, crunchy, marshmallowed, dipped, organic, aging-the-dough, mini, regular, jumbo...oh, my! The list just keeps going on and on and on!
