Gwyneth Paltrow's blueberry muffins

As readers know, I love Gwyneth Paltrow - I know some people don't like her but I just think she seems like a really cool mum who loves her clothes, music and food.   She released a cookbook last year dedicated to her dad called My Father's Daughter which I happily picked up when it was published - it's filled with lots of simple everyday recipes.  She has previously been quoted saying that cooking keeps her calm and happy, I tend to agree.  


On Sunday, I tried out a few of her recipes - I made a very simple and delicious bolognese for dinner -  no more pasta from a bottle :) and baked her blueberry muffins which she credits to her mum.  Super easy to make and very yum.



  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 3/4 cup plus 1 tsp sugar, divided
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 1/2 cups fresh blueberries
  •  
  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees celcius. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners. Whisk butter, eggs and milk in a bowl. Combine flour, 3/4 cup sugar, baking powder and salt in another bowl. Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients; fold in blueberries. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups; sprinkle with remaining 1 tsp sugar. Bake until muffins are golden brown and a knife comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Serve warm.

Music memories

I have the office to myself this afternoon so I can ditch the headphones and am turning up the music.

I used to be really up to date with music, read music blogs and keep up with new songs, artists, go to gigs.. but this has sort of faded out in the last few years. These days I seem to rely a lot on Spotify and their playlists and recommendations which is great for busy people!

But this afternoon I am feeling a bit nostalgic so reminiscing and playing some songs played at our wedding back in 2010 which is bringing back some beautiful memories.

Today I need to concentrate and write a briefing paper for my boss' boss.  Being in an open plan office it means putting on my headphones and turning on Spotify to listen to their Afternoon Acoustic playlist.  It's my go-to playlist and features this sweet little tune from John Mayer...


Back to blogging..

And I'm back... I have found myself with some more spare time up my sleeve recently and a friend suggested that I should throw myself back into blogging again so here I am!

It's crazy that it's been almost a year since my last post. 2015 was a bit of a pretty dramatic year for us on the health front so we are hoping for a lot less drama this year!

But it will be a big year with a new home purchase and us moving in mid-year.  So that means some renovating and decorating which I will hopefully post about here.  The pinning has already begun...!

In the meantime, we just enjoyed a lovely long Easter weekend at home and hosted some friends for lunch on Easter Saturday.  First time we made a lamb roast (and it turned out great to our delight) and we also pulled out the same hot cross buns recipe that I used last year which was a hit. I think this will become an annual Easter tradition.

I really do love cooking for family and friends so I think my next hosting challenge will b…
