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 Priming Reflex: How to Control Your Appetite (And Turn Your Back on a Million Years of Evolution) (October 2009)
The Priming Reflex causes people to become instinctively hungry in the presence of tasty food--even if they've already eaten. Here's how to defeat this dangerous reflex.
Savory Moroccan Chickpeas (October 2009)
This delicious recipe, a CK original, can be made from start to finish in under 30 minutes for less than $1.15 per serving.
Spending to Save: Frugality and Expensive Food (October 2008)
Is it hypocritical to buy coffee at $25.95 a pound and at the same time blog about how to cook frugally and manage food costs? A few readers thought so.
The Recipe Filebox (October 2007)
Thanks to Laura's and my fundamentally different ideas about how to file recipes, I discovered that you can lose recipes utterly--even when you keep them all in the same place.
