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:
Bad Vision: The Four Worst Diet Habits for Eye Health (April 2008)
The foods you eat--and how well you take care of your body--have a meaningful impact on your vision.
Austrian Cuisine: Viennese Potato Soup (Wiener Kartoffelsuppe) (April 2008)
Here's a rich and filling potato soup with a distinctive and unusual flavor. Best of all, it's both easy to make and easy on your wallet. This recipe gets a surprisingly high amount of search traffic.
Almost Meatless: Cookbook Review (April 2009)
I can't recommend this cookbook enough to readers, both for the recipes and for the philosophy behind the book. One of the very best cookbooks of 2009. (Note: We receive a lot of free cookbooks here at CK--publishers send them to us seemingly by the crate in the hopes that we will review them. I only choose the very best of the best to bring to my readers.)
Just Say No to Overpriced Boxed Cereal (April 2009)
The implicit presumption behind most of the products in the cereal aisle is that the child, not the parent, makes the buying decision in the grocery store. Moreover, your kids also serve as an indirect reason why these cereals are saturated in sugar and sodium.
