Diwali Cookie - Maamoul

I wanted to celebrate my religious holiday, Diwali (Festival of Lights) today with Maamoul. These delightful cookies are popular in the Levantine countries like Cyprus, Lebanon, Jordan, Syria, Israel and Palestine. Muslims, Jews and the Christians in the Levantine countries make this cookie during their religious holidays; Ramadan, Eid, Easter and Hanukkah.

Steamed Powered Sturgeon Sawmill

Considered one of the last great mills of its kind, this mill has survived since 1914. It was originally built in the 1880s on the Korbel property near the Russian River. It was passed to Mr. Michael Sugarman, of the hardware store on 4th Street in Santa Rosa, and later to Mr. Meeker, for whom Camp Meeker is named.
