This Week in History at Casual Kitchen:
Who's Watching the Watchdogs? Ethical Problems in the "Ten Riskiest Foods" Report By the CSPI (October 2009)
I have all the respect in the world for the Center for Science in the Public Interest, a group dedicated in part to making our food supply safer. However, when the CSPI released this report, which is full of appallingly misleading statistics, I simply had to expose it for what it was: a manufactured and non-existent health scare. From what I can tell, I'm the only person who actually bothered to look under the covers of this report.
Four Steps to Put an End to Overeating (October 2009)
Author David Kessler shares four key recommendations to rein in what he considers a food industry run amok. I examine each one of his conclusions--some good, some hopelessly misguided. PS: If you haven't already, be sure to read his book The End of Overeating, a book I rewarded with a rabidly positive review.
50 Delicious Recipes Containing Apples (October 2008)
It's the heart of apple season, and apples are at their cheapest and most plentiful right now. Here's a huge linkfest of recipes to help you take advantage. One of my most popular posts from 2008. Be sure to check out Baked Apples, Can't Mess It Up Apple Crisp and Apple Coffee Cake.
Italian Sausage and Tortellini Soup (October 2007)
An all-time favorite recipe here at Casual Kitchen, perfect for a cool fall day. I guarantee you'll love this hearty and easy-to-make soup.
