Fox 25, The Children’s Center and Impressions Printing have teamed together to produce Firehouse Favorites: 100 Recipes to Heat Up Your Kitchen and Warm Your Heart, a special cookbook in support of The Children’s Center in Bethany.
The Children’s Center is a private, non-profit hospital serving children with complex medical and physical disabilities. Each year, the Center assists more than 1,000 children in need of long-term, rehabilitative care with a wide range of medical care and therapies. The Center also provides families with counseling, training and assistance with planning for their special needs or injured child.
Fox 25 Chief Meteorologist Jeff George is a volunteer at the Children’s Center and regularly features the recipes of Oklahoma firefighters in a weekly cooking segment called “Firehouse Favorites” on the morning news. “After working closely with firefighters on a weekly basis, it was easy to realize the common principle they [share with the Children’s Center]—helping people when they need help the most,” George explains.
The cookbook features original recipes submitted by firefighters from across the state, artwork from children at The Children’s Center and recipes from the Center’s staff. The cookbook is available to purchase for $20 and features 100 recipes including breakfast favorites, appetizers and desserts.
Books are available at three participating Buy 4 Less stores in the Oklahoma City metro area (Portland & NW Expressway, NW 25th and Penn, and 15th and Post Road in Midwest City), or by sending check or money order (payable to The Children’s Center, please add $5 for shipping) to 6800 NW 39th Expressway, Bethany, OK 73008 or in person at The Children’s Center or FOX 25.
