Mr. Food recipes to stop - Heartland Cooks, Chef Jeff featured

Mr. Food, Art Ginsburg, delivered quick and easy cooking recipes for decades to viewers across the country.

In November 2012, Mr Food died at the age of 81 after a struggle with pancreatic cancer.

Ginsburg - who enticed viewers for decades with a can-do focus on easy weeknight cooking and the tagline "Ooh! It's so good!" - was diagnosed in 2011.

Ginsburg had an unlikely formula for success in this era of reality cooking shows, flashy chefs and artisanal foods. With a pleasantly goofy, grandfatherly manner and a willingness to embrace processed foods, Ginsburg endeared himself to millions of home cooks via 90-second segments syndicated to 125 local television stations around the country.

He published 52 Mr. Food-related cookbooks, selling more than 8 million copies.

KFVS12 aired Mr. Food segments for nearly 30 years. Since his death, Carly O'Keefe started a weekly segment called "Heartland Cooks." She features recipes from local cooks every Friday on Heartland News at Noon. You can find Heartland Cooks recipes at www.kfvs12.com/heartlandcooks.

You can also find recipes from Chef Jeff every Monday and Wednesday on Heartland News at Noon. View his recipes at www.kfvs12.com/chefjeff.

KFVS will be stopping the daily Mr. Food recipe emails enjoyed by many around the Heartland. However, if you still want to specifically receive Mr. Food emails, you can sign up at www.mrfood.com.

Thank you for subscribing to the Mr. Food email list. We hope you keeping cooking with Heartland Cooks and Chef Jeff. In the words of Mr. Food, "Ooh, it's so good!"
