Bacon and Egg Brekky Jaffle Recipe from Joe in Australia

One of our fellow jaffle / toastie / pudgy-pie afficionados, Joe,  from Australia wrote in with his favorite recipe. I thought I would share one of my fav jaffle recipes with you, its fairly simple but fantatic on a camp with a morning coffee: Bacon and Egg Brekky Jaffle Ingredients: Thick slices of toasting bread […]

Electric Toas-Tites and more Bar-B-Buns history

Some of you may know that Boy and I have long been curious about the electric Toas-Tites…what they look like, how they work.  It’s a bit of Bar-B-Buns history that we have only heard tell of on the rare eBay listing. Then recently, all that changed when we received an email from Sondra D.  I […]

Dear Toas-Tite, I’m sorry it’s been so long

To say it’s been a while is an understatement.  “It’s been far too long” doesn’t quite do it either!  The last 9 months have been hectic – new jobs, new baby niece (I say she shall eat Toas-Tites! …when she has teeth).  But needless to say, after a long hiatus from posting recipes and other […]

Low Sodium Reuben Sandwiches – Love Your Heart Recipe Rally

Once upon a time, while Boy and Girl were making Toas-Tites at their house, there lived another Boy and Girl in the same city…a Sodium Girl to be specific. Not only do we live in the same city, I am lucky enough to call Sodium Girl (and Boy) family. While the name may deceive you, […]

Waffle Delicious

As they say, breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  And waffles are delicious no matter what time you’re eating them.  My great uncle gave my grandfather a waffle iron a while back.  After my grandfather passed away last month, Boy and I brought home the waffle iron for safe keeping.  So in […]

A Mexican Breakfast For Tony

His face and hands were soft and worn like very well loved leather.  He sat in bed and chuckled loudly and deeply.  We’d caught him in bed listening to the news, still in his night rag as he called it. We talked about everyday things like how he was going to start going through his […]

Go Bananas With Banana Bread Flying Saucers

I was not a fan of the banana when I was a kid.  However, I did love my mom’s banana bread.  Now that I’m slightly more grown up, I eat them both with gusto. As I mentioned in the baklava post, recently Boy and I had to reorganize our freezer and I realized we had […]

More From Bar-B-Buns: An Industrial Electric Toas-Tite

In August 2010, Boy and I saw a Toas-Tite come up for sale on eBay.  It was unlike anything we’d ever seen.  It was industrial sized and electric.  We could hardly believe that it was actually a Toas-Tite!  The seller was based in Florida and we sent him a message to learn more about it, […]

A Gift From The (Greek) Gods: Baklava

When I was in middle school, I had a class project which for some reason involved making Greek foods for an all-Greek potluck.  My project partner and I made a white bean soup and baklava.  I had never made baklava before but I found a recipe on the magical interwebs and we gave it a […]

Picnics Full of Pudgy Pies

It may be the middle of fall and the beginning of December, but some days in California, we still get enough warmth and sunshine for a picnic.  Boy and I have made Toas-Tites at home.  We’ve made them camping.  But we had never actually transported Toas-Tites that had been cooked in the kitchen and eaten […]
