My most favorite being my bread maker. I envy anyone who can create bread on their own, I mean, besides pouring all the ingredients into a machine and pushing some buttons. I absolutely love the smell of bread baking, it just makes me want to cook!! I try to have some baking when we have guests, it makes the house feel so inviting, even if it is in a big white machine. I have a special basket with a small stone in the bottom to keep my bread warm and I always wrap it in a towel.
My newest love, is a pasta maker. Now before you think I have spent my (I mean my husbands, who are we kidding, I stay home remember??) weekly paycheck on this, it is a small hand crank one that only came with one attachment, so far ;) . I can make fettuccine and spaghetti. I can not wait to try it out. I bought extra flour at the store today and some more eggs. Ooohhh, I am excited!!
Since I haven't actually made any yet, here is a picture of my latest bread machine miracle to drool over. That is unless you make your own, then this is probably old hat to you!!
