Sunny’s Kitchen: Easy Food for Real Life (Clarkson Potter, September 17, 2013; $22.50; Trade Paperback) is the debut cookbook from Sunny Anderson, Food Network’s host of Cooking for Real and Home Made in America with Sunny Anderson. Capturing her effervescent girl-next-door personality, Sunny’s Kitchen presents 125 simple recipes for American classics made Sunny’s way—with bold, beautiful flavors.
Drawing from her military-brat upbringing, her years as a reporter in the Air Force, and of course the New York City DJ position that eventually led her to Emeril Lagasse and the Food Network, the recipes and vibrant stories featured in Sunny’s Kitchen paint a picture of true comfort food through her life of travel and exploring new flavors.
Food Network favorite Sunny cooks real food for real life, often drawing on store-bought shortcuts and always relying on affordable, easy-to-find ingredients. Sample recipes featured in Sunny’s Kitchen include:
- Fried Oysters and Catfish Nuggets with Cheesy Grits
- Curry Pork Burgers with Spicy Ketchup
- Cucumber and Orange Salad with Creamy Pineapple Dressing
- Brewed Awakening Coffee Rib Roast
- Cumin Baked Chicken with Sweet Honey-Lime Sauce
- Chorizo, Quinoa, and Zucchini Hash
- Yuca and Plantains in Garlic Sauce with Caramelized Onions
- Double Chocolate Bread Pudding with Bourbon Whipped Cream
For Sunny, comfort food is more than flavors—it’s the feeling that goes along with them, the memories, friends, and celebrations. With family photos, personal stories, and the standout recipes that Sunny is known for on Food Network, Sunny’s Kitchen is a beautiful cookbook that will inspire any reader to experience more life through food.
