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.

Apple Dumplings with Sauce Recipe
Calls for tart apples.
Apple dumplings are a popular dessert in the USA. They contain apples, raisins, sugar, cinnamon or whatever fits the cook's taste. The filling is covered with dough and then baked. They are served while still warm and fantastic with ice cream. They look like crunchy pouches and taste like a small cake. There are many variances in recipes alternating the kind of apples or including additional ingredients.

 Isn't your mouth watering yet?

The Washington Apple Commission lists a few dozen varieties of apples. Just think of all the dumpling-making possibilities!
