10 Gifts That Should Be On Your Wedding Registry

A Cookbook

If you're a good cook, skip this one and sign up for big cupcake tins or a panini maker (or whatever the trendy cooking apparatus is this week). If you're just beginning your culinary career, make sure your new kitchen is equipped with a quality cookbook that has a measurement conversion sheet, list of simple substitutions for stuff you forgot to get from the store, and the basics of making sauces, cooking meats and other useful cookery stuff. When you've just poured too much salt into your sauce and need a quick fix, having your favorite, trusty cookbook around will be more comforting and useful than five waffle irons or a set of indestructible steak knives.
