    Born in Troy, New York
    Birth name was Art Ginsburg
    Published 52 cookbooks
    Hosted 90-second 'Mr. Food' segments as an insert for local news shows
    At his peak, was syndicated to over 150 TV stations
    He trademarked his 'Oooh, it's so good' catchphrase.
    How much cooking technique can you really get across in 90 seconds?
    One reviewer noted that his recipes 'rely on the sorts of 'Ugly American' convenience foods (frozen whip topping, instant potato flakes) that cooks have long since banished from their cupboards.'
    He co-hosted an annual telethon in Buffalo for the local children's hospital.
    He gave up-and-coming chefs like Rachel Ray their first national exposure on his show.
    His recipes emphasized speed and convenience.
    He said, 'I cook for America, the way America cooks. There's no sin in using a cake mix if it's going to get your family around the table.'
