This Week in History at Casual Kitchen:

Keyword Gawking (September 2009)
Do you ever gaze at your blog's analytics, seeking out the most ridiculous search terms that bring visitors to your site? I call this dubious pastime Keyword Gawking, and in this post I share the weirdest and most hilarious keywords that actually brought readers to Casual Kitchen.

Scarred For Life By a Food Industry Job (September 2009)
What was the real benefit I received from working at a Burger King for the summer after high school? A lifelong aversion to fast food. Here's why.

How to Make Chicken Marsala (September 2008)
Your dinner guests will never guess that a meal this good can be made in just 30-40 minutes. One of our favorite recipes here at Casual Kitchen.

Antioxidant Alert! Portuguese Kale and Potato Soup (September 2007)
Possibly one of healthiest and most nutritious soups in this entire blog--a rich, delicious soup that's easy to make, laughably cheap and loaded with healthy leafy greens.

About 15 years ago was living in an apartment that was less than a block from a Burger King. Early every morning I could smell when they started the coffee. That wasn't bad at all. Then they started cooking. That nauseated me.

I'm a registered nurse. My first job after college paid $3.87/hour. Of course, that was 35+ years ago -- thankfully times have changed!

The potato kale soup and chicken marsala sound delicious.
