Best: Eva Longoria, "Eva's Kitchen"

The Mexican-American Desperate Housewives star offers some of her favorite childhood foods from growing up outside Corpus Christi — like her aunt's Devil's Food Cake — interspersed with anecdotes about recipes she’s picked up while traveling the world, and photos of her cooking for family and friends in full hair and makeup. One not-so-Mexican, but sumptuous-sounding, dish Longoria offers is for Argentinian empanadas with beef, olives, egg whites, and a secret ingredient: a hidden cube of Manchego cheese.
