I'm Getting Stripped!

Getting stripped ... sounds a bit risque, but it isn't. I've been sitting on some great news for a minute because to be honest ... I couldn't believe it. It was such great news and out of no where that I didn't want to jinx it. Kinda like an I'll believe it when I see it type of thing. Very corny of me because this is business and deals and promises happen, but I dunno ... I gotta tell you I am still in a bit of a way feeling like this can't be true ... like I know I'm working hard at this, but I don't have the market cornered on working hard, people do that every day. So I'm actually very thankful for the results. I know results aren't already promised and then I have you ... you watch (hopefully), you check the Food Network site for recipes, check the blog, keep in touch, spread the word about Cooking for Real and How'd That Get On My Plate? ... and all of that, adds up. And look what we have done ...

Starting today, Cooking for Real is getting a new industry tag ... "stripped". What that means is it's getting aired daily Monday - Friday, every week! Yes ... starting today and every weekday at 4 PM eastern, Cooking for Real episodes will air on Food Network!! Saturday air times will stay the same at noon and shows will premiere on Saturdays with repeats during the week. As a matter of fact, a new season of shows begin this Saturday! With a show I call "Recipes are Made to be Broken".

So, if you've missed some shows or would just like a refresher, the weekdays are for you! To catch all the shows, weekdays at 4 PM is where it's at. Just a tip: After watching and reviewing recipes and comments I find some of the "whys" and "why nots" about a recipe or ingredient or technique is on the show and can really help you easily make the recipe. Many times key tips happen on the shows and not within the recipes online, so I hope you check out the shows to get the full background on the dishes before you give them at try. Kinda like reading the paragraph before a recipe in a cookbook ... sometimes substitutions and tips are there for the recipe that make it so much more simple to prepare.

Check this week's schedule to see which shows and recipes air on my new stripped schedule. :-)

Again, thank you so much for the support. So much.

I am so glad that Food Network realizes how great you are!! Congrats, to my fave Food Network star!

Patricia said...

Congrats on the stripped schedule! I know you spent time in Germany as a kid, as did I, but today you said you were in BK. I lived there when I was in 2nd and 3rd grade (many years before you) and just wondered where you lived? We lived down the hill from the Officer's Club and there was a little eatery just down the street from us. Same place? Thanks for stirring up good memories and great food!

Sunny Anderson said...

margaret, thanks!! i love my fayetteville crew, both sides of my fam live there and it's where i did my summers as a kiddie ..

passionate eater, wow. thanks so much for the kind words.

patricia, OMG! we lived down the hill, but off base right? there was a hill where all the full birds and high officers lived, then a plateau with a building, parking lot and then a sloped hill down to other housing (where we lived). this housing had a huge play area and ground in front of it and at the end of that street (on the right if u look up the hill from those bldgs) was the german spot, a woman ran it. we went so much and had so many talks with her, we actually earned a stammtisch and of course out dog was always welcome. such a great way to enjoy new cuisines, as a full family ... dog and all. are we talking of the same thing? the fact that you say "the hill" makes me feel we are, that's what we called that area where the officers lived. i'm so interested to know! i think if i worked hard i could think of the owner's name...

Dylan Jay Smith said...

Congratulations Sunny! Now I'll have something more to fill up my DVR box with :) (that's a compliment)

I was just talking about you earlier today, and the whole story about how re-fried beans aren't actually re-fried etc etc. lol

Again, congrats!
