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:

The 80/20 Rule is possibly the single most powerful tool you can use to make cooking easier, cheaper, and infinitely less time-consuming. One of my most influential posts from 2008.
