Snap, Crackle, and Toas-Tite!

Rice Krispies were one of my favorite cereals as a child.  That snap, crackle, and pop were (and still are) just irresistible.  Not to mention, any time you brought Rice Krispies home, there was the delicious possibility that you might end up with Rice Krispie Treats.  The combination of the crunchy krispies and the melted […]

One Rockin’ Dirty, Muddy Buddy Toas-Tite

Today, Boy and I were in a race.  Yes, that’s right.  A race.  Now, it wasn’t a marathon.  It wasn’t a triathlon.  It was a Muddy Buddy.  It was just over 6 miles of running and biking with a variety of intense obstacles in between.  And by intense, I mean…they involved climbing over walls, climbing […]

Apple picking for Toas-Tites

A Caramel Apple (Toas-Tite) A Day

Bobbing for apples.  Apple cider.  Caramel apples.  All fabulous, fall (and particularly Halloween) activities.  This last weekend, Boy and I got out of the house and out to the country to pick some apples.  We went to Gabriel Farm in Sebastopol and ended up coming home with 15 pounds of apples, and believe you me, […]

Not quite as pretty as a poppy(seed)

Grocery stores are dangerous places to be when you’re hungry.  You can’t be blamed for your actions or how many goodies end up in your basket.  So of course, Boy and I couldn’t blame ourselves when we ended up with lemon poppyseed cake amongst our veggies and fruit.  And naturally that meant we had to […]

Top Toas-Tite: Green, Sweet Fruit

For our second Improv Toas-Tite in honor of Top Chef, we had the words green, sweet, and fruit.  There are a lot of green fruits – kiwi, honeydew, avocado…but how many would do well heating up in a Toas-Tite with some kind of sweetness?  We decided to go a little more conservative on the green […]

Toas-Tite With A Cherry On Top

Another addition to our summer fruit series! Who doesn’t love a good cherry? They’re sweet, juice, and after you’re done, you can have pit-spitting contests. Boy and I took some lovely cherries and turned them into a cherry pie Toas-Tite. Ingredients 8-10 cherries (depending on size and your desire to really stuff the Toas-Tite sandwich) […]
