Sunny Anderson is the host of Food Network's daytime series "Home Made in America with Sunny Anderson" and "Cooking for Real," part of the popular "In the Kitchen" weekend block.

Combining her approach to classic comfort foods along with her passion for unique flavors inspired by her many travels, Sunny offers real food for real life. She also understands the need for uncomplicated dishes with affordable, easy to find ingredients.

"Cooking for Real" is not the first time Food Network audiences have seen Sunny Anderson. She debuted on the Network back in 2005 as a special guest on "Emeril Live," cooking side by side Chef Emeril Lagasse — an appearance Sunny deemed as her greatest "foodie" moment ever. In 2007, Sunny co-hosted Food Network's series of specials, "Gotta Get It," uncovering the latest and greatest food gadgets and gizmos on the market.

Sunny also hosts the primetime series, "How'd That Get on My Plate?" which follows the fascinating journey of a single ingredient (such as eggs, garlic, honey or apples) as it moves from its raw state into finished, iconic products. From the farm, through the factory, to the market, watch Sunny as she travels the country showcasing the technology and innovation it takes to get our favorite foods to our plates.

In 2003, Sunny started her catering business, Sunny's Delicious Dishes, after years of cooking for her famous friends in the music industry and soon became one of the most sought after caterers in town. She served up her sole style of soul food at star-studded events such as Olympus Fashion Week 2006 at Bryant Park in New York City. And, continued to dish up her cooking talents for top platinum hip hop recording artists and studio music executives.

Sunny's passion for food paved the way for a passion with music. While growing up traveling the world as an Army brat, her parents always encouraged her to indulge in the local cuisine. When Sunny joined the Air Force, she continued her trek through the world for culinary finds and soon discovered she had a desire to explore music. Soon enough, she became an award-winning military radio host and news reporter.

Upon finishing her tour of duty with the Air Force, Sunny kept on her broadcast career playing radio host at stations in New Orleans, Montgomery, Detroit, and finally, in New York at hip hop radio powerhouse, HOT 97. Within a year, Vibe Magazine rated her show as one of the top 9 to listen to nationwide and crowned her, "Ruler of the Airwaves." Her radio success landed her guest hosting duties on MTV2, and voice over gigs on television and radio ads for Destiny's Child, LL Cool J, and John Legend.

Sunny also served as Food & Lifestyle editor at Hip Hop Weekly Magazine where she interviewed hip hop stars about food, cooking and the restaurants they love her column, "Belly of the Beats."

Sunny currently lives in Brooklyn, New York.
