We’ve already heard what Gwyneth Paltrow will be giving as gifts this holiday season, and in this week’s installment of GOOP, the star is sharing her holiday recipes. She expains, “I generally always make the same meal for Christmas as I do for Thanksgiving with a few exceptions, the Mulled Wine being the most exciting addition. I cringe when I add cupfuls of sugar to sweeten things, so instead I add agave syrup to this lovely spiced drink and it works beautifully.” But she went the extra mile and created Hanukkah and Christmas menus for her readers. “For Hanukkah I love a Whole Roasted Fish with Salsa Verde and with the addition of the Latkes, you get that wonderful crisp potato thing on the side; it’s very satisfying.” And don’t forget the sweets! “The Christmas morning breakfast/brunch is easy to prepare and has great seasonal and holiday flavors. The Spiced Pumpkin & Walnut Bread has become one of my favorites, I could eat the whole loaf.” Paltrow has even made some of our favorites a little bit better for us. “The biscuits are a healthier version of the good ole’ southern version but are just as tasty. You can scramble an egg, add one of the homemade sausages, stick ’em in the fresh warm biscuit and, to quote a line from the epic eighties film Sixteen Candles, ‘Wha-lah, breakfast is ready!’ ” Get all the recipes at Goop.com.
