Gwyneth Paltrow's 20 Best Recipes of 2011

Last summer I received Gwyneth Paltrow’s recipe, My Father’s Daughter, which I reviewed here, and cooked my way through tons of the recipes. In fact, I did an entire cooking series about them here on Family Kitchen. I have to say, all in all I found the experience very satisfying. The recipes were delicious and simple and I liked her easy, approachable style to family food. I know a lot of people blew off the book since it was written by a celebrity, but I think it shouldn’t be so quickly discounted. Pick up a copy and see for yourself! In the mean time, here are a few recipes that I really, truly loved and have made again and again.
