This Week in History at Casual Kitchen:
Knowing When Not to Be a Food Snob (July 2010)
I call out Michael Ruhlman on his abysmal behavior in a national restaurant chain. One of my most-commented, most controversial and most widely read posts of 2010.
Does Healthy Eating Really Cost Too Much? A Blogger Roundtable (July 2009)
America's poor have an obesity problem because healthy food costs more than unhealthy food. Do you agree or disagree with this statement, and why? I asked this question to five well-known food blogging colleagues. You'll be surprised by their candid and provocative answers.
Beef and Beer Stew (July 2008)
One of my all-time favorite stew recipes, adapted from, of all places, the Wall Street Journal. Who says fatcats can't cook inexpensive and healthy food too!
What's the Most Heavily Used Tool in Our Kitchen? (July 2008)
This idiot-proof device is a constantly-used fixture in our kitchen. Having one could save you a significant amount of labor--and money!
