How to store RSS items in MySQL

Being relatively new to ASP.NET I am not fully comfortable how to fully utilize the functionality in the RSS Toolkit. My problem is that I don't want to fetch a RSS and publish it directly using a gridview. I would rather collect all RSS items from a feed, go through each of them to check if they contain certain keywords and if they do store them in a MySQL database. I figure it shouldn't be tricky to retrieve individual items from a feed to perform operations on them, but it seems to be tricky enough for me. I am also certain that the RSS toolkit would make this easier than writing all the RSS parsing code from scratch, I just need to know how.

If anyone has a good idea how to do this and is kind enough to spend some minutes explaining that to mee, I would be most greatful.
