Retro Sundays

I created the Retro Sundays series to help newer readers easily navigate the very best of this blog's enormous back catalog of content. Each Retro Sundays column serves up a selection of the best articles from this week in history here at Casual Kitchen.

As always, please feel free to explore CK's Recipe Index, the Best Of Casual Kitchen page and my full Index of Posts. You can also receive my updates at Twitter.

This Week in History at Casual Kitchen:

Mock Wild Rice (December 2006)
A laughably easy and laughably cheap rice recipe that's a staple side dish in our home.

How to Team Up in the Kitchen (December 2007)
Part 1 of a four part series of posts on how to work more efficiently and effectively with your family in the kitchen.

Mint Melts (December 2008)
An interesting cookie recipe that would be a great way to get your kids interested in cooking. A few readers took issue with my tagging this post with the search term "angioplasty."

Pernil (December 2008)
A surprisingly easy recipe for Latin-American style roast pork shoulder. An extremely popular post that gets a ton of search traffic.

Even though I commented on it, I had forgotten about the pernil recipe. I just now copied and printed so that I can make it next weekend. The timing is great because I'm doing a few weeks of very cheap cooking before we blow too much money on our Christmas vacation!
