This Week in History at Casual Kitchen:

Paul Prudhomme's Barbecued Shrimp (February 2007)
This recipe, in all its buttery glory, might just be Casual Kitchen's all-time most delicious recipe. If you make it, be sure to book an appointment at your nearest walk-in angioplasty clinic.

This exotic and ridiculously healthy recipe, a Casual Kitchen original, can be made in under thirty minutes at a laughably cheap cost of just $7.00.
Ask CK: More Cookbook, Less Tofu and Annoying Blog Advertising (February 2011)
