This Week in History at Casual Kitchen:
Sauteed Penne with Broccoli and Chickpeas (August 2008)
You can make this healthy and laughably cheap recipe in well under 30 minutes. One of CK's most popular recipes, with some intriguing reader modification ideas in the comments.
Who Does the Cooking In Your Home? The Results May Surprise You (August 2010)
You'd think modern couples would be sharing duties in the kitchen more than ever these days. You'd be wrong.
The Economics of Wasteful Foods (August 2010)
Can you tell me why, as a society, we manufacture and sell "foods" like instant oats, pre-made guacamole, etc., that cost more and taste worse than anything you could make at home? Why do foods like this exist? Don't miss the various debate that erupted in the comments.
How To Eat More (August 2010)
In which I condense all of the food insights here at CK into one ironic post. Quite a few readers read this article literally and completely missed the point.
