Evas Kitchen Cookbook by Eva Longoria

Eva Longoria talks about her love of cooking, her must-have ingredient and writing recipes for her new cookbook, Eva's Kitchen: Cooking with Love for Family and Friends. Eva dedicated the book to her Aunt Elsa, a caterer who taught her how to cook. Eva grew up on a Texas ranch where she tried all types of food. The recipes in the book include those she learning growing up and recipes inspired by her travels around the world.

Eva loves lemon, basil and cilantro, but lemon is very favorite ingredient. She says she always has fresh lemons in the house, and grows herbs in her garden. Eva has some a bowl of lemons next to her on the book cover. Take a look:
