Beginning this Saturday, October 6, you can watch Sunny Anderson embark upon a new journey in her second show, Home Made in America with Sunny Anderson. Follow Sunny as she travels through Baton Rouge, La., Oklahoma, North Carolina, Texas and New York tasting delicious home-cooked creations as she moves across the country. Sunny demonstrates that there is more to food besides preparation and flavor — there is also a story. Throughout the season Sunny will not only try the most-celebrated recipes in the cities she visits, but she will also meet the cooks behind the creations. These cooks will share their inspirational stories and also their own secrets and tips. Tune in to this daytime series at 9:30am ET/PT on October 6 so that you can be a part of the journey.

Get the recipes from the most recent episode of Home Made in America.

On Sunday the second season of Halloween Wars is back with even more frightening feats to be accomplished by five new teams. Watch as groups — each made up of a candy craftsman, talented cake decorator and a pumpkin-carving artist — compete for survival in this four-episode Halloween special. The first challenge begins this Sunday, October 7, when you can watch the teams put their talents to use in order to create the most-frightening clown imaginable. The groups will be judged by a panel including accomplished cake decorator Shinmin Li; award-winning makeup artist, actor and director Tom Savini; and this week’s guest judge, Shawnee Smith of the movies Saw and Anger Management. One by one the competition will fall and as in any horror show you are left to wonder, who will be the last team standing? For those eager to watch the terror begin, the premiere will have a special showing on October 7 at 7pm ET/PT.

    Great new show, but where are the recipies??? At the end of the episode Sunny said they would be on the website. So I was excited to try Dirty Steve’s wing sauce as well as those scrumptious cupcakes . So very dissapointed .

  3. Teresa says:

    I taped the show. 4 to 1 melted Butter (unsalted) and Red pepper sauce, Brown Sugar, Seasoning salt, Blk pepper, cyan pepper, Onion powder, Chili powder,granulated Garlic and Mango Habanera sause. As for the portions I have no idea. Start testing…

    The food network is obviously deleting people's comments about the recipes. The cupcake recipe is on http://www.huffingtonpost.com and search for sunny's home made in america show. the recipe is there. I made them last night – they were ok (3 out of 5 stars) but I've made a Tres Leches cake that turned out better. And also cut the whipped cream frosting in half. 4 cups of heavy cream makes way too much. I did cut it in half and still had leftovers. Be sure to poke extra holes – one hole in the center isn't enough to moisten the cupcakes.

  8. Debbie says:

    So does anyone answer these replies. Are we going to get the recipes? Did Sunny lie about that? Thanks Janet for the Cupcake recipe. Sad that Food Network didn’t give them to us.

      Debbie, you're welcome. I did see a comment on here last night from the food network that said they would post the recipes by this Friday (not sure if that's accurate) ….

    I'm glad to see that Sunny Anderson is back on FN with a new show. She has always been a ray of sunlight and among the best hosts on the network. Sunny is so easy-going and comforting to watch: She's everybody's go-to friend when they have a problem and need someone to listen. Even when I didn't like what she was cooking, I enjoyed the delightful tales that Sunny wove seamlessly into her meal preparation. I hope that "Home Made in America" will be a success for Ms. Anderson.

    I am also searching for the recipes. Sunny did say that we could get the recipe online.
