I love my bread machine. I really do. Did I ever tell you my bread machine story?
We lived in Paso on two acres. We had two little people with a third on the way. And that, in itself, was amazing. All my friends had those Bosch mixers to knead bread. I borrowed one and realized it was too much for my brain to handle. So, I told my husband to buy me a bread machine for Christmas.
My bad. I’ve done that at least twice. And still feel bad about telling him what to get me. Anyway, not only did he buy me the bread machine AND several boxed mixes in case I didn’t have what I needed to bake that morning, but he also included a pair of diamond/pearl earrings in the bread pan.
True story. Not lying. Husband of the year. Totally.
If you’ve got a bread machine, with or without the diamond/pearl earrings, you can make these rolls — and bake your sweet hubby happy.
