In The Working Class Foodies' Cookbook, Rebecca's mission is to share tasty, affordable recipes and invaluable advice for the home cook, including how to stock a $40, $60, and $100 pantry; which organic items are okay to skip; and why making your own stock, ketchup, and even Pop-Tarts is good for your body and your wallet. Many people think that the real food movement is only for the wealthy, but Rebecca's delicious recipes--including red-skinned potatoes coated in chives and butter for under $2, sweet potato gnocchi for under $5, and a chicken roast for under $8--show readers the way to eating better and more cheaply. Starving students, working parents, and fixed-income retirees alike will eat up Rebecca's message, because real people deserve real food, real cheap!

This is a foodies cook book, not so much a comfort food cook book! Suggested prices are given as a 'between such-and-such dollars per meal; per person'. Most of the main dish recipes are around $3 a person, with the most expensive, the $8 meals, using meats like lamb and salmon (use a cheaper meat and drop the price per person a couple dollars).

One of the best things about this book was that I thought the price boxes were accurate, perhaps even a little high for my area. The recipes read like someone is teaching you how to make it rather than just a list of instructions, so it feels like you could easily make any of these you try. I wish there were pictures for all the recipes. Saved on my list: The sandwich that tastes like summer, Spicy watermelon and feta salad, French onion soup, and Thanksgiving leftover pot pies.
