Overview

America's brand-name wizard is at it again, this time creating culinary magic in a cookbook packed with fun, fast, unexpectedly delicious recipes and little-known facts all revolving around brand-name pantry favorites

As a magician of brand-name miscellany, Joey Green got Jay Leno to shave with Jif peanut butter on The Tonight Show and gave Meredith Vieira a facial with Elmer's Glue-All on The View. He has been seen polishing furniture with Spam on NBC Dateline and teaching Diane Sawyer how to style her hair with Jell-O. The New York Daily News calls him "a hyperactive, testosterone-charged version of Heloise." People names him the "Pantry Professor."

Now America's favorite creator of wacky uses for brand-name products comes up with his most inspired treat yet: Joey Green's Mealtime Magic, filled with more than 250 clever and delicious dishes made half from scratch using beloved brand-name foods, such as Crunchy Chicken Nuggets (made with Cheerios), Coca-Cola Brisket, and Spice Cake (with Campbell's Tomato Soup). Joey also serves up creative side dishes, including fun facts about America's favorite brand-name foods, and kooky alternative uses for kitchen appliances. Now you, too, can cook dinner in the dishwasher! Joey Green's Mealtime Magic is a fun way to liven up time in the kitchen and surprise friends and family at the table.

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.
