My Father's Daughter - Cookbook

Gwyneth Paltrow came out with her very own cookbook dedicated to her late father, Bruce Paltrow, called "My Father's Daughter: Delicious, Easy Recipes Celebrating Family & Togetherness." I am usually skeptical of celebrity-endorsed or written books - especially when they have to do with food, but after reading many reviews and receiving her Goop newsletter I must say I might actually pick this one up.

The cookbook has over 150 recipes for everything from ideas for breakfast, sandwiches and burgers, soups, salads, main dishes, sides, and desserts, and also includes full-color photos throughout, many featuring Paltrow at home with her family and friends.

Since I do receive her newsletter, I received a few recipes she tried out at her book release family-style dinner party, as well as, a recipe that is also featured in her book for slow roasted tomatoes below.

Slow Roasted Tomatoes

  • Vine-ripened tomatoes
  • Olive oil
  • Salt

Preheat the oven to 275°F.

Cut the tomatoes in half horizontally, rub with a tiny bit of olive oil and a pinch of salt, and bake, seed side up, in a 275°F oven for 3–5 hours, or until they look nearly sun dried (the edges will be caramelized and the moisture will be almost entirely evaporated). These keep, well refrigerated in an airtight container with a bit of olive oil, for at least a week, so make a whole bunch at once.
