There was a time when me and the kitchen didn't get along. Like, not at all. When I lived by myself in Pennsylvania, there was this time I ate a sauce sandwich. Oh, what's that delicacy you ask? It's when I put homemade sauce on a piece of bread and sprinkled some shredded mozzarella on top. I tried calling it a meatball hero without meatballs, but basically it was a culinary mess.

I'm so much better in the kitchen now (luckily, for Pete, because I can't see him ever eating a sauce sandwich). If you want to be better in the kitchen too, you need the right equipment. And part of that means adding the right kitchen items to your wedding registry. It also means you need some recipes. So don't worry. I got you.

Below, I have our top five Best Buy wedding registry items for your kitchen. Even better, I have two easy recipes for you to make with those items. And trust me. The recipes are easy. They're ones I make all the time. So if the girl who used to eat sauce sandwiches can make them, so can you.
