    A Pleasant Surprise

    I picked this up right away when it came out after hearing celebrity gossip over and over about how Eva Longoria could COOK. The cookbook is gorgeous, all of the food looks excellent, and everything I've tried is very very good! My friends and family have been equally excited about the book as well.

    It's a nice blend of Tex Mex dishes with a few of some old American classics. Eva often explains why she chose each recipe and who taught her how to cook it which make it interesting. There's a lot of recipes. Main dishes, appetizers, desserts, sauce recipes, drinks, snacks, and more. I'm vegetarian and there's a lot of things I can eat and also things I can easily substitute ingredients so that I can still eat it. Plus, there's plenty of recipes for all the meat lovers. =]

    Don't be misled by the rating on here (two stars? come on!) - it must be Nook owners rating the ebook (or possibly even just rating the sample - the full nookbook isn't so bad, in my opinion) - but the physical book is a fantastic value - the best way to go.

    Highly recommended.

    GREAT COOKBOOK!

    I just recieved this cookbook after having pre-ordered it. I LOVE it. I have a huge collection of cookbooks and this one is definately at the top of my list. I cant wait to try some of them out, especially the tortilla soup! If you love to cook as much as I do, you MUST get this book!

    BEAUTIFUL COOKBOOK

    I LOVE THIS BEAUTIFUL BOOK, THIS IS MY FIRST COOKBOOK AND I LOVE IT. I HAVE MADE 12 OF THESE DISHES SO FAR, NOT DISAPPOINTED IN ANY OF THEM. NOT ALL THE DISHES ARE MEXICAN SO I USE THIS BOOK AT LEAST ONCE A WEEK FOR VARIETY. I'VE GIVEN THIS BOOK AS A GIFT TO MY 2 NIECES, GODDAUGHTER AND BEST FRIEND. I ALSO GAVE THE SPANISH VERSION TO MY MOM'S CAREGIVER WHO IS MEXICAN AND A GREAT TRADITIONAL MEXICAN COOK, SHE TELLS ME SHE LOVES IT AND STAYED UP LATE AT NIGHT READING THE STORIES AND REVIEWING THE "IDEAS & HINTS" SHE TOO FOUND IT VERY HELPFUL, WE CAN ALWAYS LEARN SOMETHING, JUST NEED AN OPEN MIND.

    Disappointed so far.

    I've never written a review before for anything. I love to cook (and am good at it) so I was so excited about this cookbook. I stayed up late reading the recipes cover to cover thinking yummy! I've cooked 3 recipes this weekend and was disappointed in all three: lemon orzo soup, corn and zucchini salad and the tortilla soup. I had to find a hole in the wall grocery to get the pasilla peppers but hunted for them to make the soup exactly as the recipe instructed. The tortilla soup was greasy and bland. I wonder if it would be a lot better with double the peppers, garlic, onion, tomatoes. I still plan on trying a few more recipes but I am bummed that so far I wouldn't remake one of the recipes I've made so far. Some of the ratings are misleading because I've read reviews that gave 5 stars but the person hadn't cooked anything yet. Who cares if a cookbook is pretty if the recipes aren't any good.
