Not So Sloppy Joe Toas-Tites

Up until recently, Boy had never had a sloppy joe and I had only had one in my life (which wasn’t all that good).  But then, the Cook’s Illustrated Light and Healthy 2011 cookbook came into our life.  And that changed everything.  Now we make sloppy joes probably about once a month for dinner.  So […]

A Thanksgiving Toas-Tite: Turkey, Cranberry, And Brie

Thanksgiving is less than a week away.  To get in the holiday mood, Boy and I got some eggnog, turned on the heater, and of course made a turkey (….just to have….because we wanted to).  So that means that before Thanksgiving is even here, we already have delicious leftovers. As you’re getting ready for your […]

Beer & Bratwurst: An Oktoberfest Toas-Tite

On this All Hallow’s Eve, we’re getting a little German.  No, I’m not talking about costumes, I’m talking about food.  Beer, sausage, sauerkraut, onions, pretzels, beets, red cabbage…but in Toas-Tite form.  Unfortunately, we can’t fit all that in a Toas-Tite so we’re going with the main components. Ingredients: 2 slices of bread 1/3 of a […]
