Cooking made simple

This cookbook is one of my favorites. It has good recipes, simple to follow directions, and great for large families. The variety of meals is wonderful and easily adapted for special diets. Firefighter's are known for their ability to cook, and this is some of the finest. I also like the stories included about the recipes themselves, some are very touching. I could go on and on about this cookbook!


John Sineno has put together an excellent book filled with recipes that are easy to follow and more importantly great tasting! His little side stories and captions give great insight as to where Mr. Sineno passion for cooking and firefighters comes from. Having used his cookbook and also having the pleasure to meet the author, it is easily understood why firefighters have come to know him as "Mama Sineno".


I purchased this book as a gift for a firefighter. As I paged through it, I found myself book marking almost every page of recipes. What a treasure trove of great recipes that are not time consuming, and very easy to make. The book is sprinkled throughout with wonderful anecdotes such as how a fellow firefighter tests for doneness of macaroni (I almost fell out of my chair when I read it), making "purple chickens" (you'll have to read it yourself to understand that one), to insights that are so true of each and every firefighter on page 214. The final recipe entitled "Recipe for a Firefighter In Memory of Capt. James F. McDonnell" shows every firefighters true spirit and offers us a view of exactly who these outstanding men and women are.

Great for fire departments! Most recipes feed a whole crew!

Easy to follow recipes, yet unusual and tasty. Firefighters really are the best cooks in the world!!!
