This Week in History at Casual Kitchen:
Food Absolutism (April 2010)
If you enjoy raw food, you're against fire. If you don't buy organic produce, you are poisoning yourself and the people you love. If you enjoy vegetarian cuisine, you're some kind of a crunchy weirdo. I tackle these and several other insanely absolutist notions about food in this popular post from last year.
Peanut Pineapple Stew (April 2010)
An extremely popular and laughably easy recipe that combines easy-to-find ingredients in a highly creative way. Better still, it costs just 80c a serving. A classic example of the kind of recipes we love to feature here at CK.
Make Your Diet Into a Flexible Tool (April 2009)
There are times in your life when you need to bias your diet towards healthy foods, and there are times when you need to bias your diet towards energy-dense foods. Don't think of your diet as a rigid set of rules that can never be broken--rather, think of it as a license to meet your body's current needs.
Green Bean Salad: Another Ridiculously Easy Side Dish (April 2008)
When I say ridiculously easy, I mean it. You can put this delicious and distinctive side dish together in minutes and you will literally wow your dinner guests. An exceptional recipe from the exceptional cookbook The Healthy Kitchen by Andrew Weill.
Wheat and Lime Muffins: In Search of the Perfect Commuter Food (April 2007)
This post was borne out of my frustrations paying $1.75 (now probably more like $2.50) for a greasy and sugary muffin at a local corner deli down the street from my old Wall Street job. This healthy, delicious and intriguing muffin recipe was the result.
