Retro Sundays

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:

Six Secrets to Save You from Cooking Burnout (March 2007)
Even food bloggers get totally sick of cooking from time to time. Here are the tricks I use to help myself get back in the mood.

How to Be a Satisficer (March 2008)
How to grapple with one of the strangely counterintuitive truths of modern life: Having a lot of choices actually makes you less happy.

Our New Zealand Travel Blog (March 2009)
In 2008, I left the corporate world (a decision that is looking more and more permanent these days), and in early 2009, Laura and I spent an amazing month driving around both islands of New Zealand. This (admittedly off-topic) post shares the high points from that trip. Enjoy!

Thoughts on the Media Coverage of Santiago Earthquake (March 2010)
When you're in an 8.8 Richter earthquake, one of the biggest and baddest in recorded history, you'd hope the media might report what happened with at least some degree of accuracy. Wrong, wrong, wrongity wrong.

The "It's Too Expensive to Eat Healthy Food" Debate (March 2010)
In which I hammer 9-inch nails into my head at the close-mindedness and condescending ignorance of a certain New York Times food journalist. A tip for new readers: never criticize lentils here at Casual Kitchen.
