It’s about all I can do to muster up a pot of coffee in the morning.  The prospect of making a big meal before noon is just beyond me.  Luckily, there’s TOAST!  Toast is the answer to most prayers.  In this rendition, we’re exploring the sweet and savory side of toast.  Sometimes we want the sweet jolt of honey and plums, other times we want a kick of salt and spice from prosciutto and pepper.  With toast, we can have it all!  And… we can make it with one eye open.  Coffee helps. For more great recipes, visit joythebaker.com.
