Eva's Kitchen: Cooking with Love for Family and Friends
She was raised Roman Catholic.
I grew up as an ugly duckling. They used to call me prieta fea, because I was the only one of my family's four girls with dark hair, dark eyes, and dark skin. Growing up I was the ugly one, because I was the odd one.
I love being a woman. I love the sexiness we get to exude. But the best thing about being a woman is the power we have over men.
I love men, I love being in love and having romantic dates.
Surely there are more beautiful women in the world. I can name 10.
