I love my:
Cusinart miniprep: so easy for small jobs and pestos. Actually, I use it for everything.
Cuisinart handstick emulsifier: sooo handy for making soups. I don’t have to transfer to a blender now!
18/10 stainless steel flatware, so easy to clean
Le Creuset 6 quart french oven. I can cook anything in that.
All clad 4 quart sauce pan: cleans so easily, so versatile
All clad 2 quart sauce pan: perfect for the small to mid jobs
Le Creuset large cast iron fry pan: I use it for everything
Nescafe dolce gusto: cappuccino a home!
Global Chef Knife, Bread Knife: best quality, easy to sharpen
Hotel Collection Turkish cotton towels: soooo luxurious
Those are pretty much the best of the best. I haven’t used the china yet, but it looks pretty in my cabinet.

I finally tried to use my Cusinart MiniPrep to make Christmas cookies and I couldn’t get it to work! Of course, this was after I took it out of the packing and moved our entire kitchen to a new home. 🙁

We’re registry twins! My favorites:
-KitchenAid 610 Pro. I bake all the time now – it’s easy to just throw together some cookies, or get a batch of bread dough rising
-Le Creuset 6 qt and 3 qt – I like the little one b/c it’s the perfect size for a batch of rice
-Red KitchenAid wide 2-slot toaster. It looks adorably retro, and the bagel setting and frozen setting are excellent!
-Fiesta striped placemats and blue napkins – they’re so bright and festive! We use them everyday
-Red wine glasses by Cellar from Macy’s – we also registered for crystal, so we use these casually – they have those enormous bowls and feel kind of extravagant, but they weren’t super-expensive, so no worries if one breaks

@JeniRae: Someone gave us “Spicy Wedding,” too! No s&p grinders in ours, but the spices are awesome!

Our best wedding gift was a $500 GC to the Ritz. 🙂 But it wasn’t exactly on our registry – just a big suprise!
As far as registry items go, we LOVE our towels and rugs (Hotel collection!)

I would LOVE that wedding gift, august15!

I registered at Macys, Williams-Sonoma, and Bed Bath and Beyond. It was great. I also got the Kapoosh Knife Block. That thing is great! Such a great thing, it’s worth way mooore than the price. Hopefully some Bees will get it as a shower present.
I do cook a lot. Right now, my business is really slow with the holidays so I am using the extra time to practice my cooking techniques. But I have to say, with this great stuff, it’s easier to cook than before!
I also got the kitchenaid stand mixer. What a big guy that is! I used it to make Christmas cookies this year. It was ALOT easier.

Also my creamer/sugar glass jars from williams-sonoma. Every day I use them!
My WS spatula. It’s red and it works for EVERYTHING. it is my favorite little kitchen buddy
4″ mattress topper in memory foam. From Walmart. It’s like sleeping on a cloud. Amazing
