Staying Well:
Sugar's sweet – but are you eating too much of it?

You've probably heard health warnings about eating too much salt. But what about that other white, granulated food additive – sugar? Should you be concerned about consuming too much sugar, too?

Two centuries of Jewish Midwest cooking

The first wave of Jewish immigrants arrived in the Midwest in the 1800s. They brought along treasured recipes – sometimes recorded in cookbooks, but more often "embedded only in women's memories." So write Ellen F. Steinberg and Jack H. Prost in their book, "From the Jewish Heartland: Two Centuries of Midwest Foodways."

Though imported dishes maintained their Jewish flavor, many born of Jewish cultural traditions also developed a distinctive Midwest taste. This culinary history examines why and how Jewish cooking evolved over the years in Illinois and elsewhere in Middle America.
