I'm still waiting on my KitchenAid stand up mixer and my Henkel knives.

All wonderful wishes--hope that they come true one day.
My wish is to move away from the Gulf Coast with the ever present danger of hurricanes coming our way. We were lucky this last round though we've kept all the emergency supplies in our dining room. In the meantime I would love to have a clay oven to bake pizzas, pita bread, etc.

My place is a commercial kitchen, and really I have all I need. But when we sell, I am going to get new best of everything. But will prob. have to redesign the kitchen first. Two essentuals are a LARGE pantry, and LARGE china pantry. With built in shelves.

I wish I had the apartment downstairs on the third floor because it has a pantry off from the kitchen. But it costs more a month, so that's out.

There are only two things that I want - a large wooden cutting board and a potato ricer.

I've been looking at those two pots that Rachel Ray uses on her show. They look real nice. But they are Telfon-coated and expensive! But I might get them somewhere down the road.

Don't think I'll need any more bowls.

Well, I'll sure agree with the winning lottery ticket. I think that's always at the TOP of the list.

What I would really like though, is to be able to settle on a design for the new kitchen. We've decided to do a major renovation on the back of our house and add some additional space. It's still a ways off, depending on the quotes we can get and so on, but to get those we need to finalize a floorplan. We haven't been able to settle on something that we like/think would work, and keep some of the features that make the house unique.

Don't bother with the little frou-frou creme brulee torches--just go to the hardware store and buy a plumbing torch. One quarter the price, and the tank will last forever.

Doesn't look quite as pretty, but you can use it to fix your plumbing, too.

books on my list include all the rest of peter reinhart's bread books and.... not sure what else
That is the mixer I have! It's great. I have plenty of toys now. Except of course for a large pot (5 qt+). I really need to get into my cookbooks and practice technique. No excuses!

I should mention that we just got a new fridge and oven, and gas grill so the kitchen is in good shape.

Next, I'd like to purchase an enameled cast iron pot approx 10 qts. such as Le Crueset (spelling?) and a stainless 10" skillet.
Of course a new deck on the back of my house with a hot tub for my old bones would be nice also
