For the Love of Gwyn

Gwyneth Paltrow.  It's only been recently, that I have become extremely fond her!  Call it her amazing performance on Glee {which deserves a post of its own}, my awareness of her fun blog GOOP, or just how gorgeous she is...I just really really like her!

 {I mean really...how gorgeous is she??}

So you can imagine my excitement when I found out she's coming out with her own cookbook, My Father's Daughter!


I ordered the cookbook exactly one month ago and I'm supposed to get it on April 5th!  Pretty excited about it.  The recipes are said to be simple and easy...and nutritious of course!  The book is divided in 6 sections: Make-Ahead, Quick, Vegetarian, Vegan, One-Pot Meal, and Dress-Up Meal.  She also shows how to modify the recipes to be kid-friendly.  How neat is that?

Since I don't have the cookbook yet...and quite frankly, I've not been very inspired to cook lately, given that I can't eat cheese and ALL the good recipes have cheese in them...I've decided to feature a recipe from Gwyn's blog, which includes my all-time favorite, Barefoot Contessa!


What a dynamic duo huh?  You can find the entire entry here.  Here's a couple more shots of her day with Ina:



I'm telling you...if I could spend the day on Ina's Martha's Vineyard estate, cooking and eating with Ina and Gwyn...I'm pretty sure I would be in heaven!  And I am just DYING to eat that bruschetta...

Happy Friday Loves...hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

  6. I got to meet Gwyneth last year and she was a doll and very down to earth...and of course, beautiful! I'll like to get her cookbook, too. Easy recipes and healthy sounds good to me.

  13. Sigh.. Gwyn is great. So great. Her Glee singing makes me feel like I am 14 again, cutting out pictures of how she did her hair so that I too have those luscious locks (it never worked out). And now she has to come out with a cookbook and make my girl crush continue. Again, I sigh.

  14. Gwyn is beautiful and always so chic. But I had no idea that she could cook.

    P.S. We are having a giveaway over on my blog. I hope you can jump over and check it out.

  15. I always thought Gwyneth Paltrow was a stunning person and when I found out she cooked a few years back I was even more excited about her. Let me know how the book is! If it's good I'll order it too.

  17. She is absolutely lovely...talented, smart, gorgeous...but for some odd reason, I just don't really like her! I know, I'm a strange person...But I do admire all her talents! (c: Happy Weekend, Love!
