    1. Ooooooh I loved this book Yes, I read cook books, and THIS LIL BEAUTY is a perfect example why This book is 1 Charming I loved immersing myself in it and feeling the feelings of familial love and nurturing 2 Beautifully shot Gwyneth is kind of ridiculously lovely Her kids are too cute The food looks gorge It made me want to serve a summer meal in my garden.diately.3 Inspiring I feel ready to take on the home making world again It reminded me of how fulfilling it is to create beautiful, nutritiou [...]


    2. This is than just a cookbook Certainly, it is a cookbook, with many simple healthy recipes designed for creation in the context of family meals Gwyneth Paltrow suggests opportunities for children, even very small children, to help with food preparation, and she is refreshing when she shares I m a real person anecdotes like having to tackle the issue of her kids wanting french fries all the time I m impressed that her solution involves providing healthy alternatives like sweet potato fries but s [...]


    3. So utterly bizarre with a foreword by Mario Batali that I can t resist reviewing this I expect this to profoundly shape my opinions of both Paltrow and Batali and possibly scores of others Ok So it s a little pretentious Duh.I loved this book I love almost everything about it.Shocker 1 Gwyneth apparently likes lots of the same foods I do Miso, cilantro in everything , panzanella, po boys What a strange and wonderful mix of healthy and delicious foods.Shocker 2 It sort of almost kind of made me c [...]


    4. Okay, okay, Gwyneth Paltrow is insufferable She just can t see why everyone can t buy organic kamut flour and have their own wood fired ovens But, you know, this is a great book She s got some awesome recipes and, while out of touch with a middle income majority, at the very heart and soul of this book is a well intentioned woman and a great message eat with your family Involve your kids in the process the picking out of vegetables, the cooking Sit down to dinner And it IS important If your kids [...]


    5. I am a paradox I LOVE to buy cookbooks but I hate to cook I mean I really, really hate it The chopping, the cleaning, chopping It s unbearable So why do I keep buying these things I guess I fall for the delicious, glossy images and the idea that I, master chef, will be able impress family and friends by whipping up an amazing creation following a simple recipe I work myself up into a frenzy of inspiration every time I buy one, promising my husband that THIS TIME I am going to make him something [...]


    6. I looked at this book for ages before buying it finding it for a bargain price at TK Maxx finally encouraged me to close the deal And I don t regret it, because this book has a lot of simple, healthy recipes that I can make for dinner as long as my oldest daughter is not dining with us There are a few recipes that I would quibble with only because they are SO basic Come on, do we need someone to tell us to add some parmesan cheese and butter to spaghetti BUT I came away from this book being conv [...]


    7. My husband gave me this for Christmas I never asked for it, or gave any thought to reading it before I received it I m glad he gifted me with this cookbook, because I actually enjoyed it very much I m not sure that I will cook many of the recipes, but I loved hearing her stories To me, this is less of a cookbook and of a love letter to her father My heart actually ached for her when she said that she chose a macrobiotic, vegan, gluten free, local, all organic diet as a way to vicariously cure h [...]


    8. So, I secretly like Gwyneth Paltrow I know it s not popular to like her, but I do I think she s a better actress than people give her credit for Shakespeare in Love is a particular favorite , and while she s clearly lived a life of privilege and isn t 100% in touch with the everyday person s lifestyle, does that really surprise anyone Her website gives you a peek into the rarified world of the international elite, and I totally love checking it out So what if I can t spend 100 on a t shirt It s [...]


    9. I was disappointed by this cookbook I try to eat healthy food and am always interested in new recipes but this book has only 2 types of recipes 1 unnecessarily overly complex, with difficult to find ingredients ie a recipe for cooking a chicken for 10 hours or recipes requiring ingredients that can only be found online or 2 overly simple recipes that aren t really recipes at all like pasta with parmesan cheese and pepper, or garden salad , or a romaine salad that is literally just a quartered he [...]


    10. The most important thing I learned while reviewing this book for my site, katecooksthebooks, was that people hate Gwyneth Paltrow Way out of proportion, if you ask me They find it to be highly insulting that someone from a priveledged background, who, they believe, has led a completely charmed life, would have the audacity to say anything about cooking.All of that somehow made me determined to find out if her recipes worked and her book was worth buying or at least checking out of the library.A [...]


    11. I have a bit of a fetish for beautifully photographed cookbooks, and Gwyneth Paltrow she of Shakespeare, Coldplay and Glee fame has created one of the loveliest I have seen clean, crisp and inspiring Despite my embarrassment about ordering a celebrity cookbook, I have to admit I have really enjoyed this one, and it will maintain a spot on my kitchen shelf Given how many cookbooks have come and gone through my home, that is no small statement I ve particularly enjoyed the breakfast recipes OMG th [...]


    12. I had no intention of checking this book out from the library, until I saw Gwyneth on the Graham Norton show which I was watching mostly for Lady Gaga, secondarily for Geoffrey Rush After she brought forth her vegetarian paella and gushed about brussel sprouts, I figured I d give it a shot, even if cooking was a just a side project to being famous My husband laughed and decided I must be weird when he realized I was reading this cookbook cover to cover I started making a list of recipes I wanted [...]


    13. OK, so I was extremely skeptical before checking out this book Gwyneth P induces eyerolls in me on a regular basis and while that patronizing attitude is definitely here, the recipes are excellent, photography is beautiful, and the stories and anecdotes she provides are quite charming.The recipes are actually fairly basic, things you can make at home on a daily basis, excited to try of them out One of the best cookbooks I ve read this year.


    14. I don t really plan to read this I just want to note two things Molly Wizenberg must be so pleased to know that Gwyneth Paltrow clearly read her book You should watch this youtube user EvilMedia


    15. Katie gave me this for Mother s Day you might think that a celebrity cookbook isn t a serious cookbook, but this one is Austin leafed through it and immediately found several recipes for us to try the narrative is interesting, the pictures are gorgeous and the recipes are homey and delicious.


    16. I loved the stories she shared for each recipe I have never read a cookbook from cover to cover before this one, and I honestly enjoyed it



    17. I picked up this book because, one, I am a huge fan of Gwyneth Paltrow and, two, I also happen to love eating delicious food The introduction is a touching dedication to her father, Bruce Paltrow, who instilled in her a love for good foodt just gourmet or health food but food that tastes good Bruce was also a great cook who developed his style and knowledge of food throughout his life Food also took on a secondary meaning for Gwyneth because it was something that bonded and solidified her relati [...]


    18. I am writing this review as I eat the Duck broth with soba from this book Gwyneth Paltrow s stated intentions on the cover of this book, which are to provide delicious, easy recipes celebrating family and togetherness were almost met The recipes are the standard fare for foodies There wasn t much that was original, but I give her points because of how she put the book together She gives tips on how to get young children interested in cooking through participation I live with a 3 year old girl, w [...]


    19. It is what it is and much than I expected.Admittedly, I initially opened with much trepidation I mean, it s Gwyneth Paltrow Insufferable, sure I mean, read her dedication where she references all the famous ppl she knows, at least the ones you ll know YOU may be cooking for your friends and family, but SHE s cooking for Beyonc and Robert Downey Jr If nothing else, read it for the dedication However, the flip side her being about the image is that I knew she would not lose face by putting out a [...]


    20. I related with Gwyneth right away when I read about her great passion for food despite her skinny physique come to realize we have those things in common I think everything is better with food too I loved how she had comments of how her kids liked certain dishes She also had stories to go along with the food which made it seem like a good friend was giving me her recipes I was surprised by some of the simple family recipes in this book She has practical recipes for stocks and sauces that can be [...]


    21. After her father died in 2002 Paltrow wanted to pull together a lot of the recipes that they cooked together or were his favorites It s a sweet book, filled with her memories of him and his love of food, which she inherited It s also quite interesting, in view of her new cookbook, as she has completely changed her way of eating in just a few years Paltrow still always leans toward making comfort food and food that children will enjoy eating.Some of her recipes in My Father s Daughter include som [...]


    22. I ended up buying this book, at a Williams Sonoma in Short Hills, as the kids and I got a chance to meet her and get an autographed copy It was a fun experience the only surprising part was how much makeup she had on for the event it was a lot, and she always strikes me as seeming to natural and not made up I get it for a movie premier, but for a cookbook signing , and the boys liked telling her that they loved her as Pepper Potts in Iron Man, loved her in Glee and that their dad has a Coldplay [...]


    23. I got this from the library because I have enjoyed her GOOP website and was intrigued to find out what she could have to say about food I so rarely buy cookbooks these days, looking instead to the internet and my Cooking Light and Food Wine magazines however, I am thinking I will buy this one I found myself completely immersed and read it cover to cover last night It turns out she has a very strong point of view and one that is very similar to my own, serving her kids a large variety of solely o [...]


    24. This was decent A lot of people seem to have strong feelings about this woman that influenced their opinion of the recipes Me, I just like good food And while not the best cook book I ve come across, it was pretty good The lady really loves anchovies and duck, two things I don t ever cook with So excluding those recipes, there were a number of pretty good recipes There is a fried rice uses brown rice with kale dish that was surprisingly pretty incredible I think it could become a staple side dis [...]


    25. When I first picked this book up I thought, Gwyneth Paltrow, what do YOU know about food and cooking But I took it home from the library and flipped through it, and I have to admit, there are some really nice and also unique recipes in here I liked that she had recipes for kitchen staples like roasted tomatoes, sriracha, and stocks stocks are a kitchen NECESSITY according to the cooking instruction I ve read of Escoffier so seeing that she had her own recipes for them in here added to my impress [...]


    26. Excited to have won this book What a wonderful and warm cookbook It s full of stories, beautiful pictures and a variety of healthy and easy to follow recipes It s perfectly laid out and organized Many pages offer additional tips that I found very helpful Gwyenth adds a little personal note at the beginning of each recipe that were just a delight to read Being a new mom myself, I enjoyed reading about how she introduced food to her children and taught them the importance of health I immediately s [...]


    27. The photographs in this book are beautiful I saw this in a bookstore and flipped through it just admiring the photos I have to admit that I haven t cooked many of the recipes, yet But I am in love with her peanut butter cookie recipe I have made them several times and they always turn out amazing I also really liked her tomato sauce with fresh basil It was a very simple recipe but turned out very tasty She has some other pasta recipes in here that I will be trying out eventually Not every recipe [...]


    28. I got this from the library because it seemed amusing and I wanted to check if any of the vegan recipes were good, but 50 pages in I m appalled a by all the product placement and b that her best miso soup recipe, containing bonito flakes, is labeled with both the vegetarian and vegan symbols, with no mention of alternatives or them being optional yet she totally seems to get that honey isn t vegan Having skimmed the whole book now, its vegan recipes are generally not that inspired and are simila [...]


    29. This is an amazing cookbook Its focus is whole type foods with practical and easy to find ingredients The dishes are also simple to prepare at a pretty minimal price The recipes range from basic vegetable stock, tomato sauce, chive viniagrette , to elaborate lots of duck dishes You can sense in its pages that Gwyneth gets it she understands that while many moms are trying to prepare healthier foods for our families, sometimes it s just not entirely possible So she includes kid friendly food, an [...]
