Toasters can be a fire hazard. Always remember to empty the crumb trays to keep your toaster in great working shape. Dry bread crumbs near the element can cause kitchen fires.

“In the South, the breeze blows softer… neighbors are friendlier, and more talkative. (By contrast with the Yankee, the Southerner never uses one word when ten or twenty will do)… This is a different place. Our way of thinking is different, as are our ways of seeing, laughing, singing, eating, meeting and parting. Our walk is different, as the old song goes, our talk and our names.”
-Charles Kuralt in Southerners: Portrait of a People

    I love your recipes which I share with my cousin in Alaska and a friend that has her own diner, here in NY.
    One tip I would like to add is to place your toaster on a small tray (mine came from a toaster oven), it will make cleaning up your counter so much easier!!!
