The Gourmet Toaster Oven

I'm not the best lately with wanting to cook. I just want food (preferably healthy food) ready to eat quickly. I don't want to have 9 million ingredients and take 7 hours to make. I have the time honestly, I just don't want to spend it that way.

I have a great toaster oven that we got as a wedding gift 11 years ago (Wow. That's a long time for a toaster oven...) and I like using it. We heat things up in it all the time, but I was pretty sure it could do more.

Around Christmas I saw a short review of this book. I immediately put it on a list of presents that hubby could potentially get me for the holiday. Come Christmas Eve it was sitting under the tree. Yea!

So, I finally got around to looking through it for recipes. I'm looking forward to trying them out. Since we all know I'm not all that into cooking, I won't be doing these all in one week. LOL! I'll be slowly trying the following recipes out:

Coffee Cake Muffins
Bacon and Cheddar Cheese Breakfast Muffins
Eggplant with Tomato and Cream Sauces
Turkey, Tarragon and Apple Meatloaf
Old-Fashioned Apple Crisp
Peanut Butter Cookies

I'll check back in and let you know how they go. I have my cousin coming up in a couple weeks and I was thinking the Coffee Cake Muffins and the Bacon and Cheddar Cheese Breakfast Muffins might be nice for Sunday morning breakfast. I think they will be the easiest to try too. I'll keep you posted!

What are your cooking expectations? Got a favorite cookbook? Got a favorite recipe that makes you love (or at least like) cooking?


  1. Please share once you make! Your choices sound delicious and I LOVE my toaster!

  2. No worries! I will! I'm hoping to find some keepers. :)
