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.

Japan love...

Some friends of ours are currently holidaying in Japan (they were also our wedding photographers and have an awesome blog here. If you are getting married I definitely recommend them)...
Anyhow, I have been reading their tweets and status updates and am reminiscing and dreaming about Japan.  I spent a year in Sapporo on exchange whilst at uni and have visited Japan I think at least 4 other times... it has been about 2 years since my last visit so perhaps another one is due soon?!?!  There is just something about the place that I love - perhaps it is the memory of some amazing times, the delicious and unique food, the shopping or the wonderful people... I can't put my finger on it but you MUST get there if you haven't already.  
On shopping, some of my must visit stores are:

Uniqlo:  Your one stop shop for basics.  They have also partnered with many designers, companies, artists for the UT project - limited edition tshirts.   UT t-shirts are available in all Uniqlo stores but c…
