A frequent guest on Appetites, author Amy Thielen celebrates Midwestern cuisine in her book The New Midwestern Table: 200 Heartland Recipes.
From the publisher about The New Midwestern Table:200 Heartland Recipes:
Amy Thielen grew up in rural northern Minnesota, waiting in lines for potluck buffets amid loops of smoked sausages from her uncle’s meat market and in the company of women who could put up jelly without a recipe. She spent years cooking in some of New York City’s best restaurants, but it took moving home in 2008 for her to rediscover the wealth and diversity of the Midwestern table, and to witness its reinvention.
The New Midwestern Table reveals all that she’s come to love–and learn–about the foods of her native Midwest, through updated classic recipes and numerous encounters with spirited home cooks and some of the region’s most passionate food producers. With 150 color photographs capturing these fresh-from-the-land dishes and the striking beauty of the terrain, this cookbook will cause any home cook to fall in love with the captivating flavors of the American heartland.

When he was first diagnosed with ALS – Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig's Disease – on Dec. 6, 2010, Bruce Kramer was dean of the School of Education at the University of St. Thomas. He shared his journey with the incurable disease from time to time with Cathy Wurzer. This book and the accompanying audio download came out of that project.
From the publisher about We Know How This Ends: Living While Dying:
Written with wisdom, genuine humor, and down-to-earth observations, We Know How This Ends is far more than a memoir about life with ALS. It is a dignified, courageous, and unflinching look at how acceptance of loss and inevitable death can lead us all to a more meaningful and fulfilling life.
The book includes a digital download of Cathy's favorite interviews with Bruce from Morning Edition.
