With her striking looks, the appropriately named Megan Fox has transformed from a mere model to a rising star and, according to many, the sexiest woman in the world. Megan Denise Fox, born on May 16, 1986, in Rockwood, Tennessee, took an early interest in dance and acting and began her training at the age of five.
By 13, her demonstrated acting skills and model good looks won her accolades at the 1999 American Modeling and Talent Convention in Hilton Head, South Carolina. Guest appearances on such TV series as What I Like About Youand Two and a Half Men soon followed.
A co-starring role with Lindsay Lohan in 2004's Confessions of a Drama Queen got Megan even more exposure, landing her a recurring role on the ABC sitcom Hope and Faith, where she worked with stars Kelly Ripa and Faith Ford from 2004 to 2006. A little hope and faith, not to mention luck and talent, gave Megan her biggest breakout vehicle yet, the role of Shia LeBeouf's girlfriend in the highly anticipated 2007 blockbuster Transformers. In between acting gigs, Megan puts her good looks to good use, posing for spreads in such magazines as GQ, Maxim and FHM, whose readers have voted her 2008's Sexiest Woman in the World, beating out Jessica Biel and Jessica Alba. She has made her fiance, Beverly Hills 90210 alum Brian Austin Green, whom she's been dating since 2007, the Luckiest Man in the World (beating out Justin Timberlake and Cash Warren!).

Eva Longoria may be most recognized for her role as Desperate Housewives’ saucy Gabrielle Solis, but on her own time, there are few places she would rather be than in the kitchen, cooking the food she loves for her family and friends. Here is the food Eva loves to eat, and the recipes in Eva’s Kitchentrace her life story, taking readers on her culinary journey—from the food she was brought up on to the recipes inspired by her travels abroad to the dishes she serves during casual nights at home.
Having grown up on a ranch with every meal based on what was in the family fields, Eva believes, like so many of us, that good cooking relies on local, fresh, easy-to-find ingredients. In Eva’s Kitchen, she teaches readers essential cooking skills and she sprinkles in the histories and traditions behind her favorite dishes, including personal stories and anecdotes that capture the warmth, humor, and joy of her most memorable meals.
In her first cookbook, Eva welcomes you into her kitchen, offering 100 of her favorite dishes—many of which are family recipes collected over the years—all fused with her passion for cooking. She also shares memories of her Texas ranch upbringing, her very first cooking adventures, vacations overseas, nights in with her girlfriends, and last-minute pre–red carpet meals.
Inspired by her heritage, Eva highlights the essentials of great Mexican cooking, Texas style—with her family’s recipes and techniques for making the world’s best tamales, homemade tortillas, Spanish rice, and Pan de Polvo (Mexican pastry), to name a few. She also offers dishes from a variety of international cuisines, from Latin American to Italian and French, inspired by her globe-trotting travels. A taste of Lemon Dover Sole whisks Eva to a tiny hotel-restaurant she once visited on a trip to Normandy; the recipe for Cannellini Beans with Crushed Red Pepper was a souvenir from a trip to Florence; kimchi adds a kick to her Spicy Roasted Brussels Sprouts, a Thanksgiving staple; and Yellow Squash Soup with Lemon brings her full circle, back to her family’s vegetable garden in Corpus Christi.
With full-color food photographs, intimate portraits of her family and friends, and a glimpse into Eva’s home and her lesser-known domestic side (family first, acting second, she says), Eva’s debut cookbook will entice her loyal fans and inspire home cooks to broaden their culinary horizons and create memorable meals for the people they love.
