With the 4th of July fast approaching, Food Network’s Sunny Anderson showcased some delish side dishes on Good Morning America this morning, including her Easy Baked Beans, Summer Corn Salad and a creamy Potato and Prosciutto Salad. Well, that corn salad will be on the menu this weekend and, possibly, the baked beans. While the Barefoot Contessa had a good recipe for baked beans, I have to confess, it seemed somewhat daunting to this gal. Sunny’s recipe seems super simple and won’t have me grabbing multiple ingredients, soaking beans for hours all while stumbling over the Sous Pug who will camp his happy behind by the stove hoping for a piece of bacon to fall.
Oh – before I forget – DVR Alert! Sunny’s All American Celebration will be airing on Saturday morning at 10 a.m. and July 4th at 6 p.m. on the Food Network. Check out the description from Food Network:
Sunny Anderson shows us that behind every great soldier is a good meal! It’s a very special personal and patriotic journey for Sunny as she travels to Ft. Bragg, North Carolina and Fort Lee, Virginia to look back on her time in the military, celebrate our men and women in uniform, reconnect with her active duty family members, and show us why food is often the glue that holds military families together.
Way to go Sunny!
