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:
Cooking With Love: Farfalle with Mushrooms and Gorgonzola Cheese (January 2007)
A simple, quick recipe made from easy-to-find ingredients--yet one that's original and just a little bit unusual. One of our all-time favorite warm pasta salads.
How to Tell if a Recipe is Worth Cooking With Five Easy Questions (January 2007)
One of CK's first high-traffic posts, and a post that remains hugely popular among readers even today. Be sure to check out the bonus recipe for White Bean and Black Olive Soup.
Quite Possibly the Easiest Lentil Soup Recipe You’ll Find Anywhere (January 2008)
A hilariously cheap and easy recipe that completely blows out of the water any perception that healthy food has to be expensive.
Mushroom, Barley and Swiss Chard Soup (January 2009)
We always want to eat healthy food here at Casual Kitchen, but we don't want to have to suffer too much to do it. Here's a soup that's easy, really healthy--and costs a mere $1 a serving.

Hacking the Satiety Factor of Foods (January 2010)
There's a huge problem with mindlessly cutting calories when you're trying to lose weight. This post shares not one, but two ways to beat the system when it comes to selecting foods that will help you reach your goals.
