You can find brown rice syrup at the Bulk Barn!

She looks like she could stand to eat some of these recipes! She is too thin.

I was so skeptical of this book, but WOW. It is fantastic! It has inspired me in my cooking (which is saying something because I cook a LOT and love cooking anyways). The recipes are so simple, healthy and out of this world. This book reminded me of the incredible flavours that can be added to my dishes by using lemon zest, basil and lime juice, among others.
Just get this's so fantastic. I'm going to buy my own copy.

A lovely compilation of recipes and some beautiful passages about her family--try making the pancakes; delicious!

Some recipes look good, others I would never try.

Looking forward to making the slow-roasted tomatoes and the peanut butter cookies.

Is there anything this woman can't do?

"This is a beginner’s book, appropriate to first-apartment dwellers who have found sophistication in wardrobe and employment but not yet in the kitchen. But it isn’t bad for that, if you can keep the snark about a stick-thin celebrity who used to be a vegan writing a book on what she learned about cooking from her wealthy television-producer father at bay (which is, let me tell you, difficult). Paltrow’s recipe for rotisserie-style roast chicken, pulled in equal measure from the chef Joël Robuchon and the Brentwood Country Mart in Los Angeles, helps a great deal."

At least she's not singing.

Although Gwyneth Paltrow has taken a bit of teasing for the highbrow tone of her book, My Father's Daughter: Delicious, Easy Recipes Celebrating Family and Togetherness, it's clear she loves food and wants to pass on her enthusiasm.
I found that in the end, I enjoyed the book...however, I'm still looking for brown rice syrup...not all of the ingredients will be easily accessible for everyone.
