Now that we’ve uncovered in my Part I interview with Sunny Anderson how she made her way from DJing to plating, we are going dig into some of her scrumptious cooking secrets!
Secretary Confidential: How is it being the “new kid on the block”?
Sunny Anderson: It’s cool, I’m used to it. I moved almost every year growing up and in my adult life, I’ve kept the same pattern. So, being new is old to me. I just hope I’m around long enough for someone else to be the “NKOTB.”

Anticipa-a-ation. How does the song go? That’s what I’m feeling today as I’m about to meet Sunny Anderson. Interesting, huh?
I’m nervous to meet the Comfort Food Queen. Particularly after I just watched her Burger and Cakes viewing parties.
Yippee. Yikes. What to wear? Should I bring a gift — her Grammy’s red velvet cake, perhaps? Oy vey. My attempt might prove to be offensive. I don’t want to pry, but of course I want the dish!
I’ve heard she has led a CRAZY life so far, which I can’t wait to share with you. To tide you over, check out Sunny’s cool personal site and blog for a quick taste.
Wish me luck on bringing out my inner Barbara Walters.

That’s what we should call Sunny‘s episode “First Down, Ten to Feed”; airing on January 24th . Sunny’s baking her beloved Grandma’s red velvet cake. Yummy.
She’s a natural storyteller, and her tales are NOT scripted. As she spoke about her Grammy baking this cake for church or for her high school graduation, I thought she might cry. So sweet! Her approach is fun to contrast with Anne Burrell who talks of her recipes as if she were talking about her best girlfriends.
Sunny also embraces some cake curveballs like white vinegar or whipping up the icing on the stove. I don’t cook, but that seems unusual. Our dear Sunny can be prone to belches in the right conditions. That was kind of comical to watch. She burps between takes and is fine with this. A woman who is comfortable in her skin — I love that.
Happy New Year FN Dishers!
