What's a hotdog/hamburger pan? I've never seen one. It has crossed my mind that homemade buns would be delish. I'm not big on baking tho. Just not my favorite thing to mess with flour for some reason. I don't have a big sweet tooth, although I love homemade bread!

And yes, Avalondeb I have seen Le Creuset at HomeGoods/TJMaxx. Unfortunately they have not been the right size or they are a color that just won't work for me. Not that I'm too picky about colors but I would like it to fit in with the colors I have going on already. I did pick up a couple LeCreuset baking dishes at those stores and they are great. Easy to clean etc. I'll just have to check out those stores more frequently!!

I have the pan that makes the large buns and at Christmas received the one to make smaller buns. Here's a link to where I get them: http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/...ry=C86&id=5185.

I use my bread machine to knead and do the first rise of the dough, then shape the dough and put into the pan for the final rise and baking. Just too easy and yummy beyond belief.

Don't mean to go off topic but.......,

I'll NEVER buy anything else from TJMaxx ever again!! Stay away from there!
That also goes for Bob's Stores, Marshall's and Home Goods as well, which the co. TJX also owns.

My debit card got canceled by my bank because of the snafu that occured in their corporate office when hackers got into their computer system and stole personal info on peoples' credit / debit cards.

A class-action lawsuit has been filed against them for this. Too many people, myself included, are being seriously inconvenienced by this!!

Katie,
I'm primarily blaming you for the new additions on my "must have wish list"!

Hey Corey123, sorry about your debit card nightmare. Same thing happened to me with my CC. It WAS a nightmare!!

But.... it's like an addiction for me, I HAVE to shop there!! I have had other CCs cancelled for the same reason, hackers breaking into databases.

I do understand how upset you are. I still haven't fixed/straightened out all the mess because of their neglect of security!

Yeah, and the part that seems so **** unfair to me is that when you you have a debit or credit card, you're practically treated like a king.

But if you try using a personal check, especially at a supermarket, you're treated like crap!! They now refuse to let you get any cash back with it, and I suspect that's because of TJX's scandel!!

Talking about "off topic" but yet on my wish list today...Valentines Day.

For all of the broken hearts out "there" to be mended!

That's sweet, Uncle Bob. You're a real "sweetheart" for saying it!

One recommendation on the Kitchen Aid mixer:
If you are going to use in an area under a cabinet, get a Professional model instead the one in the picture (I think is called Artisan).
The Professional type has a mixing bowl that goes vertically up and down and a fixed mixing head. The Artisan type has a pivoting head that requires more space.
