Enter Crate and Barrel.  When you start a qualifying registry with them and add that registry to your mywedding.com free wedding website, you can enter to win a $1000 gift card.  So now you can register for not only the mixer you need, but also the cookbooks you want.

To start, head over to Crate and Barrel and create a registry with at least $500 of products (another thing you are learning about registries is that this is not hard to do).  Once you are all done, connect your new registry to your free wedding website.

Good luck!
