Eva Longoria's character on ABC's "Desperate Housewives" isn't exactly domestic, but in real life the actress says she "tries to cook every day." She's released a cookbook called "Eva's Kitchen: Cooking with Love for Family and Friends." It includes family recipes and her own go-to dishes such as chicken tortilla soup.

The 36-year-old is a big cookbook collector and had a clear vision of the beautiful photos and stories she wanted with her own book.

Longoria said Thursday she still has many other dishes and crockpot recipes that didn't make the cookbook and she'd like to write another one in the future.
