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.

Pie or Cake???

The first question for today's celebration happens to be, "Are we celebrating a pie or a cake?" It's name indicates the foodie of choice is a pie. Yet, its consistency leans more toward a cake. It does have cake layers but also a creamy custard filling most indicative of a pie. One thing for sure...it is scrumptious and what does it really matter, pie or cake?

October 23 is...

National Boston Cream Pie Day

More a cake than a pie, this Boston creation has become a favorite dessert item in restaurants and households nationwide. With layers of sponge cake and custard topped with chocolate ganache and a sprinkle of powdered sugar, it was good enough to be named the official dessert of Massachusetts. [Source: CDKitchen]
