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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

Using The Leftovers: Bread Pudding

The Toas-Tite grill itself was originally envisioned as a new way to eat and enjoy leftovers.  But when you make a Toas-Tite sandwich today, you end up with extra bread trimmings.  So what do you do with those?  Well…there are lots of options.  You can use the extra bread to plug holes in the walls, […]

A Vintage Toas-Tite And Replica Comparison

Recently, we posted about the new Toas-Tite replicas from Replica Products.  Now it’s time to get to the detailed comparison to the vintage originals.  We compared the replica to one of our post-patent original Toas-Tites (rather than the pre-patent, “deluxe”, Boy Scout, or Tid-Bit).  Please note that Replica Products did provide us with their replica […]
