Read the introduction. Absolutely hilarious. Old geezers indeed! My husband couldn't (wouldn't) boil water if his life depended on it. Besides the fantastic recipes, this cookbook has a lot of charm and personality. I believe that for a firefighter (just like other professions), their job is a 'calling.' Contributor's bios and photos reflect the passion for their jobs and their love for family and fellow firefighters. The recipes mirror the personalities of the firefighters diverse, hearty and no fancy frills. Just simple good cookin'. A few of my favorite recipes are Captain Ward's Goulash, Galveston Gumbo, Southwestern White Chicken Chili (have you noticed there is always a great chili recipe in a Firefighter cookbook?), Milky Way Cake, and Sore Throat Cookies. I especially liked Erasmo Lopez's chapter (page 99). I grew up in Florida and my cooking background was southern style cooking. When I moved to the southwest, I struggled with learning a new style of cooking, wanting to take advantage of regional produce and spices. 'Mo's Guacamole' recipe was a winner. Simple and perfect!
