Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Vegetable stock

    • vhopcroft on May 19, 2011

      This is my new go-to vegetable stock. The tarragon adds lovely flavor!

  • Miso dressing

    • vhopcroft on May 19, 2011

      Delicious! I add a little less white miso now as I found it a little overwhelmingly salty the first time I made this.

  • Standby vinaigrette

    • TanyaPaquet on June 23, 2013

      I add an additional teaspoon or two of maple syrup.

  • My Ivy chopped salad

    • Mollyh on July 13, 2013

      Used striped bass and it was still AMAZING.

  • Chicken Milanese

    • adrienneyoung on September 29, 2011

      I am feeling very uncharitable feelings toward Ms. Paltrow at present. This is the recipe that has taught me that I do NOT know how to pound meat. I have shredded bits of chicken all over my kitchen counter at present. And two VERY small residual chicken breastlets to milk and breadcrumb for our dinners, once the cherry tomatoes have finished roasting. Hmph. Phooey, I say. Also, needs to be more aggressively seasoned than I managed. Maybe salted a couple of days in the fridge, per zuni cafe cookbook?

  • Fried rice with kale and scallions

    • Elnara on February 13, 2014

      I really liked this recipe. It's a great way to use up extra kale and get it in the kids. The soy sauce makes this dish, it brings all the flavours together and makes it yummy. Will make again!

    • Melanie on October 07, 2015

      A good dish, but not a wow. Makes for a healthy side to grilled chicken and veg.

  • Spiced apple crumb muffins

    • annapanna on January 03, 2016

      Very tasty - and nobody realized they were vegan. I particularly liked the crunchy topping.

  • Healthier version of the blueberry muffins

    • sarahcooks on November 12, 2012

      I was very skeptical, but these were delicious and the kids loved them too. I used regular milk, and I had to use more agave for some of the maple syrup (I ran out) but otherwise I followed the recipe. I'm sure they're delicious as written too.

    It is one of those real comforting cookbook reads you can take to bed. Real home cooking with a lovely introduction where Gwyneth talks about her family and how her love of food grew.
