Secrets of Fatherhood Revealed - Melt That Cheese!

The blackened tray for the toaster oven -- a key piece of equipment for the melting of cheese and the sustaining of peace and nutrition.
There is no permit, test, or qualification that unequivocally gives one the right/privilege to become a father. This is to my benefit as I have always done poorly on standardized tests. But I have a blog and I have some kids, so I guess I am a credentialed expert. 

But if there was such a test, it might go like this:

How do you melt cheese on a bagel?
  • Heat the oven to 475 degrees and turn on the convection fan
  • Toaster oven
  • Flammable spirits
  • Blowtorch 
Perhaps all would melt the cheese but there is only one correct answer -- the toaster oven. This is what parents need, one-dial appliances and two-ingredient recipes. I become misty-eyed thinking about all the smiles and joy our toaster oven has brought us.

Trendy kitchen appliances come and go, but the toaster oven remains the keystone to sound pediatric nutrition.
