Mr. T

It's summer time here in Texas and you know what that means, it is hot!   Fortunately I have a new friend helping me beat the heat in the kitchen this year.  Meet my new bestie, Mr. T.

Isn't he a cutie?  Not only is he good looking but he's a real whiz in the kitchen.  He (along with my handy dandy slow cooker) has given me the ability to serve my family hot, fresh, and healthy meals without heating up the entire house.

Don't be taken aback by his compact size.  (Come on ladies, you know size isn't everything.)  This little guy heats up in a flash and can toast, bake and broil.  I do love me a fresh cold salad but the summers here are so long that boredom sets in and I long for some old school baked goodies.  Thanks to Mr. T, now I can have my cake and eat it too!

P.S.  My kids have been teasing me about calling my toaster oven by his official name, "Mr. T".  I've told them that he's more than an appliance and referring to him by anything other than his actual name would be rude.  (You don't hear Gordon Ramsey calling his assistants with a "Hey, sous chef", do you?  I didn't think so!)  Anything you can do to help me out here would be appreciated.  And if you have names for your "assistants" I'd love to hear them.  Bring it on, folks!


  1. That might just be the perfect thing for us. Space is at a premium but not heating the oven and the whole house for two baked potatoes sounds wonderful in this Florida home.

    1. Yes, it's so very nice! I wonder if you could find one that mounts under a cabinet so you don't have to forfeit your precious counter space? I use mine every single day and don't miss my microwave at all. Hope you find one and fall in love too!
