We celebrated everything from cereal and biscuits to barbecue and cocktails this week on “Cooking Today.” Host Sunny Anderson brought to air her contagious energy, her love for food, and her Grandma Williams!
When thinking about what 1-0-1 tips she wanted to share with us this week, Sunny decided to focus on biscuit making. And what better person to help us out, than her very own Grandmother?!
After celebrating National Cereal Day with some of our old favorites, and learning about YouTube's upcoming Food Channel from Electus CEO Bruce Seidel, we closed out the week with one of our favorite mixologists, Lynnette Marrero. Owner of DrinksAt6 Consulting and President of the New York City Chapter of Ladies United for the Preservation of Endangered Cocktails (LUPEC), Lynnette once again treated our tastebuds to some of her originally crafted cocktail creations.
