This year’s going to be different, so there’s no reason we can’t think positively and make some happy changes in the midst of all the chaos.

    Recreating a family dish can be intimidating. It was for me! Coming from a Palestinian family, the dishes we make are complex and laborious. It also doesn’t help that my mom never wrote down any of her recipes.

    How These Diwali Sweets Became My Thanksgiving Tradition, Too

    In the late 1980s, my mother’s friend Vasanti-bhabi issued a challenge. As part of the traditional Diwali treat exchange, she gave my mom a nutty, fudgy mystery log, wrapped in aluminum foil, and asked her—if she enjoyed the dish—to identify its ingredients.

While many today think of Thoreau’s memoir as a paean to a solitary existence, those who study and teach Thoreau say this is a misconception. “The message of Walden is not about withdrawing from society,” says Aaron Sachs, a professor of history at Cornell University who studies American culture and its engagement with nature and natural resources.
