Gwyneth Paltrow may have just added a fourth pillar to her triple threat. She can act, dance, sing and now, she can cook. Not only does she cook, but she feels she has the authority to provide instructions on how to cook. Yep, Gwyneth Paltrow has come out with a cookbook titled, My Father's Daughter: Delicious, Easy Recipes Celebrating Family and Togetherness, where all the recipes either don’t call for sugar or recommend a sugar substitute. The book is expected to be released on April 13, 2011. Some excerpts from her new cook book have actually been released. Paltrow writes:

• "In the last ten years or so, cooking has become my main ancillary passion in life."
• "The stove is really the epicenter of my house — I am never far away from it and most of the time there is something atop it, simmering away for my family."
• "I am constantly thinking about ways to give my children something filled with as much nutritional value as possible."
• "More often than not when I prepare desserts, I am thinking about keeping the sugar intake low, as well as limiting other ingredients that don't do us any favors."
• "When I was growing up, the tomato soup I had was Campbell's, and how I love it to this day."
• "I can still hear [my father] over my shoulder, heckling me, telling me to be careful with my knife, moaning with pleasure over a bite of something in the way only a Jew from Long Island can, his shoulders doing most of the talking."

Well now that we’ve experienced that extra special glimpse into her life, Paltrow has also recorded a country song called Country Strong, which comes out on January 7 in wide release. Apparently winning an Oscar wasn’t enough for Paltrow, now she has chosen to conquer the country world and the culinary world.
