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:
Brand Disloyalty (May 2009)
One of my most important--and strident--posts on consumer empowerment. Never let consumer products companies profit from your blind loyalty.
A Rebuttal of "The Last Bite" (May 2008)
If there's one thing I can't stand, it's close-minded, alarmist Malthusianism. In this post I tear apart a particularly flagrant example of Malthusian thinking from The New Yorker.
Brown Rice: Dietary Penance (May 2008)
Brown rice isn't just a healthy and nearly complete food, it can also serve as a cure for a multi-day period of overeating. Read this post to find out how. (See also my post on Spicy Brown Rice, an easy, quick meal when you don't feel like cooking!)
Mexicali Pork Chops (May 2008)
Despite the fact that this recipe is a bit of an ethnic reach for The Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook, it remains an excellent, inexpensive and easy recipe.
