I recently picked up Gwyneth Paltrow's cookbook My father's daughter from the library. Her father Bruce passed away in 2002 from cancer. She writes that she feels closest to her dad (who she calls the love of her life) when she's in the kitchen. On the cover under the book's title she describes it as "delicious, easy recipes celebrating family and togetherness." The book has nice photos of Gwyneth with her father. She includes tips on how to have your kids help making the meals.
I thought she might be a vegetarian and she does have some vegetarian and vegan recipes in the book but there is a wide variety of recipes. The only thing she doesn't eat is red meat because of the way the animals are kept and processed.
Anyway, I think there are about 150 recipes in this cookbook but I haven't made any of them yet. I have a habit of getting cookbooks and then being intimidated by them. I had better try one of them soon before the book is due back at the library!
