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:
Ask Casual Kitchen: Do You Make Money Blogging? (July 2010)
Where I explain the second oldest lie of the internet. The short answer is, yes, I do make money blogging. But it's kind of complicated.
Review: Cooking Green by Kate Heyhoe (July 2009)
By far the best book I've ever read on how to reduce your kitchen's carbon footprint, yet still cook healthy, affordable food for your family. An absolutely exceptional read that is still teaching me new things. Highly, highly recommended.
Guess What? We Spend Less Than Ever on Food (July 2009)
This post probably made more enemies than all my other writing combined in 2009, because it challenges all of our conventionally-held assumptions about food.
A Brief Tutorial on How to Cut Up a Pineapple (July 2008)
With pineapple on sale these days for a glorious $2.99 (at least in our local grocery stores), I've suddenly found this post quite useful.
Shrimp in Tomato Sauce: Middle Eastern Cuisine (July 2007)
This post features a striking mix of flavors and spices in a delicious and hilariously easy recipe. A favorite from Casual Kitchen's very first year.
