Episode Summary

Sandi S.
Before: Sandi's a firefighter who lives and works with 30 men, yet her cooking's so bad that her buddies groan when it's her turn to cook. They even have a bottle of Tums out as part of the meal! Watch as the Gal Pals set out to help this fashion burn out turn into a smouldering siren while showing her how to prepare a delicious meal for her sceptical fellow firefighters. After: Armed with recipes provided by Danny, Sandi now must face her true test - the kitchen. It's a "trial by fire" if you will, and practical jokes played by her fellow firefighters, which is obviously the standard practice in this firehouse, do not help ease her apprehension. But the trooper that she is, she plugs away knowing she must cook a delicious meal for a group of hungry men. While in the new spa-like bathroom, courtesy of Mr. Pease, a few of her buddies decide to replace and hide her recipes. They also replace her potted basil with a geranium thinking she would never notice. Not finished yet, they also freeze her cookbook in ice. If this is how these guys show affection, they must really love Sandi. From her fabulous new wardrobe, she opts for a pair of boot-cut jeans that accentuates her figure and a gorgeous chocolate top. To cap it off, she chooses a pointed heeled boot, much to the approval of Robbie. To overcome all of the obstacles, her boyfriend Glenn comes to lend a helping hand as well as her best friend. Despite all of the good-natured jokes and all the ribbing, the rest of the guys come in to help their sister in need - or to show their level of hunger. Before long, the Capri salad is made, the steaks are cooked and empty stomachs are gathered around the table. But wait - the Gal Pals have one more surprise in store for this local heroine, a Dell laptop. Even though they constantly give her a hard time, in the end, they show their appreciation for Sandi complete with a fire engine cake to celebrate her fifth anniversary as a firefighter. Unfortunately for Sandi and her buddies, the celebration is cut short as the alarm of the firehouse screams at the men - and lady - to quickly get dressed and dash off to an unknown emergency. But fortunately for the rest of us, there are people like Sandi who do cut celebrations short in order to give us their heroic helping hand.moreless
