Darren and I have recently started the registering process, and I have to say it is one of the strangest things we have done for this wedding so far. It feels very weird, almost wrong, to be going through a store picking out things we'd like other people to buy for us. (But I have to admit, it is a little exciting too, considering that 95% of what I own is from a garage sale.)
When it comes to the kitchen section we've gone through and added a lot of basic cookware, dinnerware, a few small appliances, etc. But there is sooo much to choose from. So I was wondering if you ladies had any thing that you use when cooking that you just LOVE. Maybe something that makes certain recipes so much easier to make. I'm really loving cooking, but it's only been the past year or so that I've ventured beyond grilled cheese sandwiches, so there's a lot I don't know. There are a few random things that I think would be great, like anything that makes chopping easier haha! and Darren is excited about simple things like a coffee grinder and a meat thermometer. But then there are things that I really have no idea what they are or if they'd be useful - like a dutch oven. sounds like the type of thing every chef should have, but i don't have a clue what the purpose of one is.
So, after all of my babbling, is there anything in your kitchen that you just can't live without? A favorite doodad that gets you super excited? And I guess it doesn't have to be just kitchen, but no, I don't think I can register for fancy knitting needles haha.
