TWO-TIMING TOASTER: The Four-Slice Toastation from Hamilton Beach (hamiltonbeach.com or 800-851-8900) is a combination toaster/toaster oven. The two don't work simultaneously, but the two-in-one, 16 1/4-inch wide appliance will certainly free counter space. Two extra-wide slots on top can accommodate four toast slices or bagel halves; the oven is large enough for a 9-inch pizza. With automatic shut-off. It costs around $40.

Ah, the toaster oven: a perfect tool for making… toast? While these miniature ovens do produce perfectly toasted bread, they can do a whole lot more. A toaster oven is also more energy efficient than a regular oven and has the ability to brown and crispify foods in a way that a microwave cannot. From whole eggs still in their shells to pizza, fish, kebabs, and muffins — here’s how to use your toaster oven for more than just sliced bread. 

What You’ll Need

Toaster ovens are, well, mini-ovens. And since they’re so mini, it’s impossible to shove a giant cookie sheet in there. (Don’t worry, we tried.) To make these recipes super easy, arm yourself with these toaster-oven friendly tools.

  • Small Cookie Sheet. An 8×11 inch cookie sheet fits most standard toaster ovens, but check your model’s instruction manual for size guidelines. Don’t want to head to the kitchen store? Tin foil always works in a pinch.
  • Six-Cup Muffin Tin. It’s no surprise that a 12-cup muffin tin isn’t toaster oven friendly, but some 6-cup tins won’t either. Make sure to buy one that has less metal around the edges so it’ll fit (check the packaging for dimensions).
  • Ramekins.  These little oven-safe cups are great for oatmeal bakes, baked eggs, or individual fruit crisps.
  • Bread Pan. A standard size loaf man is likely a bit too large for a toaster oven. Look for one that’s no more than10x5 inches. (Or go with mini loaf pans!) one that’s no more than10x5 inches. (Or go with mini loaf pans!)

Planning on becoming a toaster-cooking connoisseur? Invest in a toaster oven baking set! (This one includes a mini baking sheet, muffin tin, cooling rack, and cake pan.)

  • Police said a burglar broke into a local nail salon and got away with cash.Channel 2's Audrey Washington was in Gainesville where police said the man scoped out the shop for one specific reason.Police said the burglar targeted the salon because he knows the nail techs get tipped with cash. They said it's the same reason they want him off the streets before he hits another nail shop.Surveillance video obtained by Washington showed the man walk into the back door of the nail studio and spa inside the Lakeshore Mall before 8 a.m.'Somebody come in through the back door like you see in the video,' the business owner told Washington, 'He just randomly picked it and (was) lucky to get in.' TRENDING STORIES: Woman had $2 million in liquid meth hidden in cleaning jugs during traffic stop, police say 10-year-old girl struck, killed while walking to a store Man shoots AT&T work truck outside parked in front of his home While inside, the shop owner said that the man cut the wires to what he thought was the security system. It turned out the wires he cut were to the audio system, so the camera was rolling as the man made his way inside. 'Not fair for us or anybody or business owners,' the salon owner told Washington.Sgt. Kevin Holbrook, with the Gainesville Police Department, told Washington, 'He did not hit any other businesses in the mall. He went to this nail salon, probably knowing that they do a lot of cash business.'The owner wouldn't say how much the guy got away with and police are hoping someone will recognize the suspect in the video by his distinctive camouflage backpack. Meanwhile police are warning other nail salon owners in the area. 'If you do cash business, if you have employees that receive cash tips, do not keep large amounts of cash in your store,' Holbrook said.The salon owner said he added extra security to his back door and as for the suspect, police believe he lives in the area. Anyone with information is asked to give Gainesville police a call.
  • The Latest on the ongoing investigations into Russia meddling in the 2016 election (all times local): 8:30 a.m. White House aide Kellyanne Conway says it's only fair to expose any potential conflicts of interest of investigators helping Robert Mueller examine Russia's interference in the 2016 election and possible ties to the Trump campaign. Conway tells Fox News' 'Fox & Friends' that members of Mueller's team have contributed to Democrats Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama in the past. She says: 'It's relevant that people know what the motivations are. That is not an attack on the team. That is what's fair is fair.' This comes as Mueller's probe into Russia's election meddling appears likely to include some of the Trump family's business ties. On Friday, Conway said Americans are interested in the financial details of Mueller's staff: 'Let's at least have the transparency and accountability speak for itself.' ___ 3:15 a.m. President Donald Trump's legal team is evaluating potential conflicts of interest among members of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigative team. That's according to three people with knowledge of the matter. The revelation comes as Mueller's probe into Russia's election meddling appears likely to include some of the Trump family's business ties. Trump attorney Jay Sekulow tells The Associated Press Thursday that the lawyers 'will consistently evaluate the issue of conflicts and raise them in the appropriate venue.' The people with knowledge of the matter insisted on anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly.
  • America is gearing up for a spectacular celestial event, a total solar eclipse, on Aug. 21, 2017. A total solar eclipse occurs somewhere in the world about every 18 months, but for the moon and the sun to align perfectly to create a total solar eclipse in the United States is rare. The last total solar eclipse that was visible in the contiguous United States was back on Feb. 26, 1979.  QUIZ: How much do you know about solar eclipses? Jason Heaton, The Director of Astronomy at the Boonshoft Museum of Discovery in Dayton, says this eclipse is being termed the Great American Eclipse. 'It's visible in America, all the way from the west coast to the east coast,' said Heaton. In the Miami Valley. Ohio area, the eclipse will begin shortly after one o'clock in the afternoon on Aug. 21. It will take the moon almost three hours to cross the face of the sun, from one side to the other.  WATCH: When will the solar eclipse be visible in your community? During the eclipse it will get darker, cooler and shadows on the ground will look strange and animals may act very strangely too.  Many cities across America will see a total eclipse, but our area will only have a partial eclipse. Almost 90 percent of the sun will be eclipsed by the moon. The last total solar eclipse that passed over the Miami Valley was more than a thousand years ago.  THINGS TO KNOW: 7 things about the rare total solar eclipse in August Unlike a lunar eclipse, the solar eclipse cannot be watched with the naked eye. It must be viewed safely with special filters or eclipse glasses. Even a sliver of the sun, is too bright for our eyes. Looking at the sun for long periods of time can damage your eyes. Even during an eclipse when only part of the sun is visible, it can be harmful to watch. In fact, Optometrist Dr. James Bierly says it may be even more dangerous to look at the sun during an eclipse.  'A lot of time during solar eclipses because of what we call the light spectrum going away, the pupil will dilate on its own, and then you are getting more UV radiation or UV light that is coming in and could cause damage,' Dr. Bierly said. RELATED: Where are the best places in the country to see the Great American Eclipse? Eclipse 2017 facts: A solar eclipse is when the moon moves in front of the sun. The solar eclipse happens on Monday, Aug. 21. It will start in the northwest United States, and end in the southeast United States. This hasn't happened to this scale since 1918. Solar eclipses happen fairly often, but they are not total, meaning some parts of the sun are still visible. Partial eclipse starts near Seattle, Wash. at 12:08 p.m.

  • The city of Atlanta's economic development authority will have to wait and see if it will be granted premium seating at the new Falcons stadium. Invest Atlanta asked the city's ethics board to overturn a previous ruling and allow the authority free, premium seating at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.The seats would be used to attract business, but the group argues it has essentially paid for the seats through bond financing.Channel 2's Nicole Carr learned about the request this week, ahead of Thursday night's ethics board meeting.The board heard Invest Atlanta's formal request then, but a source told Carr that Invest Atlanta's recent letter outlined its 'intent to include premium seating in the contract for the new stadium for economic development purposes.' TRENDING STORIES: Woman shot outside Starbucks in Cobb County Police: Burglar thought he cut security wires, still caught on camera 10-year-old girl hit, killed while walking to store On Thursday afternoon, Invest Atlanta forwarded Carr its letter to the ethics board. The seven-page letter outlines the $200 million investment the city of Atlanta has made in the Atlanta Falcons and the stadium. The authority argues that's the payment for the seats.[READ: Invest Atlanta's letter to ethics board]Invest Atlanta is largely responsible for recruiting, retaining and attracting business, both internationally and nationally.'We all respectfully request you all rescind the 2013 advisory opinion and issue a new one,' Rosalind Rubens Newell, with Invest Atlanta, asked the board Thursday. '(It will) showcase the city to the businesses we are trying to attract here.' But local watchdog groups say allowing Invest Atlanta such a request could lay the groundwork for bribery.'Greasing some folks with some tickets or gifts or things like that can happen in this situation,' said William Perry, with Georgia Ethics Watchdogs. 'They should be especially diligent when it comes to economic development.'Perry was a part of the watchdog group that argued against Invest Atlanta's request in 2013. At that time, the independent ethics board ruled the group ineligible for free tickets, citing Section 2-816 of the Atlanta City Code. The code states:(a) No contract or lease with the city may require passes, tickets or gratuities to be given to officials or employees or permit reduced fees to be paid by officials or employees. The contracting party shall not provide gratuities or prerequisites to any official or employee in connection with execution of or performance under the contract or lease.The code was a result of what was happening prior to 1997, during then-Mayor Bill Campbell's tenure. The ruling states that, at that time, 'members of the Atlanta City Council received free tickets to sports and entertainment events, often as a part of a city contract.'The ruling is correct,' Perry said. 'This is something of value. They shouldn't get it.'On Thursday, Invest Atlanta initially declined to comment on the request ahead of the ethics board meeting. The request letter detailing its stance was sent shortly after 5 p.m. Thursday.'These are gifts and they're being used to bribe either public officials or the ones that they're courting,' Perry said, 'and with those little gifts could come bigger problems later.
