What 'equipment' do you need in your kitchen?

I'm clueless on cooking but from reading recipes it seems so complicated that every dish seems to need it's own set of machines :-s .... can much be made with just, a stove, an oven, and, hands?

what else do I need to begin? a mixing bowl, a tray for the oven, frying pans.... etc etc etc
