Sunny Anderson Recipes

BBQ Brisket and squash Pie
Prior to Sunny’s visit, Mike from Marietta, Okla, had never given his BBQ brisket recipe to another living soul but hints that it is due to his Weber barbeque smoker! Boasting wins at over 1,000 cooking competitions, it is little wonder he wanted to keep it close to his chest. On her trip, Sunny also visited the kitchen of her grandmother in Fayetville, N.C. Sunny’s favorite pie of all time is Grandmother Williams’ squash pie and now, finally, Sunny has the recipe.

Buffalo Chicken Lasagna and Four-Layer Cheesecake
Firefighters from River Grove, Illinois, and far beyond adore the Buffalo Chicken Lasagna served at David’s Firehouse. Sunny gets the coveted recipe during a visit. Next, Sunny heads for Queens, N.Y., to meet Jeneen. The singer turned baker has sold her four-layer cheesecake at gigs all around New York in an effort to raise money for her first singing album. The cheesecake is so good that she has had massive success with her sales and is well on her way to producing the album.

Buffalo Wings and Cupcakes
Sunny takes a trip to Bellingham, Mass, with the purpose of meeting Steve. The talk of the town is his buffalo wing sauce and his backyard is a hive of activity when he hosts one of his regular parties and serves this dish. For the first time ever, he is revealing his recipe and Sunny is the lucky recipient of this information. Next, Sunny sets off to meet Carmen in Brooklyn. Her specialty dishes are Italian and Latin flavoured cupcakes that she creates in her own bakery, Brooklyn Cupcakes. Her two best sellers are the flan cupcake and the tres leches cupcake. Sunny is fortunate enough to have the opportunity to learn how to create both.

Pierogi and Waffles
Kathleen from Connecticut is famed for her homemade pierogi recipe; a recipe passed down from her grandmother. Sunny heads to the family farm to learn more about this dish and also Kathleen’s vegetarian chilli. After filling up on Kathleen’s treats, Sunny heads for Chicago to visit the owner of Babycakes Food Truck, Leah. It is the only specialized waffle makers that are carried in a truck in the whole of America. Leah tells Sunny all about her top-selling dishes, including strawberry margarita, rainbow silver dollar pancakes and sausage apple pancakes.

Tailgate Sliders and Granola
As part of her search for dishes that are home made in America, Sunny visits Mary in Croton Falls, N.Y., to try her amazing homemade granola recipe. It is so good that Mary has set up her own business selling the granolas, Lola Granola, and has even gained a contract with a top national retailer. Norman, Oklahoma, is the next stop for Sunny on her travels. Here she is meeting Caryn who has a fantastic recipe for sassy tailgate sliders that she serves root beer pulled pork sandwiches. She serves both dishes from her food truck to the residents of the town.

Swordfish and Arancini
During a trip to Somers, N.Y., Sunny visits Lucille who makes mouth-watering swordfish balls. It is a family recipe that has been passed from one generation to the next for the last 100 years. It has become a family tradition to feast on this tasty dish. The next stage of Sunny’s travels lead her to Brooklyn to get the family recipe for arancini al ragu from Dave, the owner of Arancini Brothers. He perfected this delicious rice ball dish when he was in Sicily. Whilst there, Sunny also manages to get Dave to reveal another one of his unique recipes, the bianco rosso verde arancini.

Sunny Anderson

The Food Network is bringing in Sunny Anderson For its new series “Home Made in America.” This TV show has Sandy Anderson using numerous kitchen products from around the world.
“When we were lounging around considering what this show could be and the potential for it, we understood that each formula has a story, regardless of the possibility that it’s as basic as ‘I served it at chapel or I took it to work for a potluck and from them on, everyone made me make it,'” she says.

Anderson didn’t need to go far for her first stop: Brooklyn Cupcake in East Williamsburg. Proprietor Carmen Rodriguez began the family-run waffle makers shop in her kitchen three years back in the wake of losing her employment. The local New Yorker never thought her Puerto Rican and Italian-motivated treats would get so much acknowledgment — Brooklyn Cupcake was named the city’s best by the Daily News not long ago and simply won a pined for seller contract with Barclays Center.
“The last few years have been kind to many people with a passion for food.,” says Rodriguez, who offers not only her story but also her famous recipe.

Those how-tos are significant to “Home Made in America,” says Anderson. She trusts that viewers will see that it doesn’t take proficient classes or the best kitchen appliances to make flavorful nourishment or for consistently home cooks to impel their culinary gifts into a little business.
“This series is just like my life,” clarifies Anderson. ” I was a reporter at first and my childhood consisted of moving around which is why I found a passion in it. However it is highly unlikely I wanted to be on Food Network.”

“I’m certain there’s somebody who might be listening who works in a healing center or an area desk setting, and they have the best treat formula, and they’re thinking to themselves, ‘I reflect on whether I can do that?’ And the answer is ‘Yes, you can.'”

Recipes & Tips

If the truth be known, we all have a collection of cookbooks gathering dust and cobwebs somewhere in our home.  Does anyone really use cookbooks to prepare a family meal?  Most cooks rely on their own “tried and true” concoctions that were very likely handed down through grandma and mom.

When children are asked what their favorite dish is that mom prepares, most likely it will be an old family tradition.  Our readers want to sample these old American favorites.  HomeMade in America would love to publish your FAVORITE HOMEMADE RECIPES. 

If possible, send along a photograph of yourself and/or the prepared dish to  If you have an interesting story about how the recipe came to you, please let our readers know.  We need your help in producing this culinary collection of Americana!  Our mouths are watering!

We also want to create a list of FAVORITE COOKING TIPS that are the magic touch on your special dishes.  This may require a little extra thought since “real cooks” just seem to have an instinct about what a particular dish needs.
