Cooking with Gwyneth.

My boyfriend bought me the new Gwyenth Paltrow cookbook, “My Father’s Daughter” and I have been reading it over and over again drooling over the delicious pictures inside. I bookmarked a few of the recipes to try out this week — a salad dressing and stuffed artichokes — and over the course of my cooking experiment I learned that:

1. Artichokes are very photogenic. Dinner may have been a bit late because of an impromptu photo shoot.

2. Gwyenth Paltrow  knows her way around a vinaigrette. I’m having dreams about her chive dressing.

3. Turns out, I don’t really love the taste of artichokes. But the French bread and tomato stuffing? Scrumptious.

    I definitely need to get this! I love the sound of a chive vinagrette. Thanks for sharing

    So you like? I’ve been debating on whether to grab this or not? Recipes hard?

    Great photos, you’ve got my mouth watering. I wonder, do you think these are really her recipes and she really cooks or do you think she just licensed out her name so someone else’s work would actually sell? Doesn’t matter, I am still interested enough to check it out; just makes me curious.

    I have a love/hate relationship with Gwyneth Paltrow, but I love how you made her look “fat” in that photo. That may be the champagne talking.
