Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Despite the subtitle, most of the recipes in this new book from Green (Clean Your Clothes with Cheez Whiz) are not particularly offbeat. Arranged alphabetically by product from Argo Corn Starch to Wishbone Italian Dressing, they are, for the most part, "back of the box" fare, supplied by the manufacturers themselves: Barbecued Chicken using French's mustard, the Original Potato Salad from Hellman's, etc. Green also includes a section on "Strange Facts" for each product, essentially company histories and trivia. For larger collections.
