Our Registry Faves

When selecting our registry item we definitely took a less-is-more approach. We had a good idea of what we regularly used, and what we were lacking, so we focused on entertaining and upgrading our favorite kitchen items. We have honestly used and loved everything we received from Crate and Barrel and Williams-Sonoma, but there are some standouts that we absolutely couldn't live without.

Registry Faves

1. 3-Piece Mesh Colander Set I just love these. They are perfect for rinsing veggies, straining pasta, you name it. The 3 different sizes are so handy. 
2. 7-Piece In-Drawer Knife Set The organization freak in me loves these because they leave my counters clutter free, and the cook in me loves how sharp and sturdy the knives are. The best of both worlds!
3. Cuisinart 7-Speed Hand Mixer  I already had a stand mixer, but surprisingly not a hand mixer. I love using this for whipping up something super quick like a batch of brownies or frosting. 
4. Stemless Wine Glasses Nothing ground breaking here, but we sure are getting our use out of these and we love them (mostly because they are dishwasher friendly).
5. Williams-Sonoma Traditional Finish Half Sheet Pan These are serious baking sheets. Super heavy-duty, but easy to clean. We especially love them for roasting veggies.
6. Bodum French Press Everyone told us to register for the more popular Keurig and I am so happy we didn't listen. This makes the best coffee, and is super quick. It's definitely our new favorite morning ritual. Which brings us too...
7. CafĂ© Mug the perfect size mug, and for some reason it's just more fun that it's glass. 
8. Ici Silicone Tools I have been using these for years and there is just nothing better. We almost never make a meal without these. 
9.10-Piece Glass Bowl Set These were another surprise winner because we use them for EVERYTHING. Even the tiny bowl is perfect for prepping. I love them for baking, storing cut  up fruit, and even serving. I can't say enough good things about these bowls.
