Four years ago, I started Working Class Foodies on YouTube (/wcfoodies) to help other young, hungry and broke people just like me make delicious and healthy dishes for only $8 per person. 

Now I'm proud to share The Working Class Foodies Cookbook with you. With 100 recipes featuring seasonal ingredients, The Working Class Foodies Cookbook is perfect for you - whether you're just learning how to cook, shop at the farmers market, or simply save money.

This book was the MOST informative cookbook that I've ever read-I'm not kidding. I was wandering through a bookstore the other day, wondering if it was possible to find a cookbook that would allow me to keep from spending a lot of money while still eating delicious meals-because, let's be honest, who REALLY wants to eat ramen noodles for four years of college-and at the end of a 20-minute search, I came away with this in my hands. In just my first week of using the book, it has more than paid for its $20 price tag-and you can get it online for even less here? That's crazy!

As a college student who loves cooking but doesn't have a lot to spend on money, this book was GREAT at giving me recipes that I could make for small amounts of money that were delicious at the same time. I made my own fresh pasta, tried my hand at breadmaking for the first time and saved a whole lot of money while learning great cooking techniques. Even to a picky eater, this book made things sound delicious and I was able to try recipes that I would probably have never thought to make before. This book is an invaluable resource to me.

This book could be for anybody who likes to cook, or even just wants to learn a little bit more about cooking, while on a budget. Rebecca Lando has compiled a gem here that allows for people to do just that-embrace their creative side while still creating filling meals that will keep your mouth, your stomach and your wallet all happy. She even tells you how to stock a pantry, something that I've been trying to learn over the years by compiling my own list, but have never quite gotten down; the book was SO helpful with that!!

It's true. What I like most about Rebecca Lando's The Working Class Foodies Cookbook is that it was immediately like my smartest, longtime friend bearing new information and insight about how to shop, how to prepare, how to cook, and how to enjoy. It waltzed into my mind, sat down and spoke to me like it knew me well, providing me with Rebecca's insightful list of possibilities, treats, and how-to's.

The book suggested that if I would wrap my arms and head around comfort, contentment, and variety in the kitchen, it would stay for dinner and others I care about would arrive to join us.

I admit it. I usually glance for direction at the recipes in most of my cookbooks and then launch off on my own with a fairly high success rate. Not in the case of Rebecca Lando's book. The Working Class Foodies Cookbook talked to me, and I listened happily. It knows what it's talking about every time.

Thank you, Rebecca.

...not having an accurate title.

But I can see how "Two DINKs Who Are Each Working Class But Not Actually That Worried About Money and Who Live in a Major (Most Likely Coastal US) City Within Walking Distance of a Fabulous Farmers Market That Includes Fishmongers Cookbook" might be a bit unwieldy.

I am just starting out learning how to cook (and be healthy) and I absolutely LOVE this book. She not only shares recipes that are very adaptable, giving you the opportunity to be creative in your kitchen, but she also teaches you HOW to shop and prep. She also teaches how to make the basics like bread, stocks, etc. which has saved me a ton of money. I have purchased several other highly recommended cookbooks but this by far my favorite.

I bought the Kindle edition and the green/gray titles for each recipe are difficult to read. I am a big fan of pictures in cookbooks and did not find any until I went to the acknowledgments section and found she thanked the photographer. I don't know how the printed version is, but the Kindle version has just a few pictures at the end of the book (very impractical for a digital book).

It is an outstanding cookbook, but lacks pictures.

There is some good information in this book, but also some bad or mis-information. The author seems to promote farm-raised fish, but never mentions that farm-raised fish have higher fat content, many have antibiotics and who knows what else in them, higher PCB's and toxin levels as well as less Omega 3's than wild caught fish. As far as "cheap" goes, I had to laugh when I saw the pantry section. It says "How to Stock a Pantry for $60 to $80), but the very first item is olive oil with the price listed as '$6.00 to $24.00'. Now, I know for a fact that organic extra virgin olive oil is very expensive. Taking that into account and looking at the rest of the pantry "staples", unless you're buying small quantities and for only one or two people, you are NOT going to stock your pantry and come in at $60-$80. There-in lies the rub in this book: this book seems to be written with single people, or couples at most in mind. A good portion of the recipes seem to serve 2-4. There are six in my family, so I will constantly be having to double or triple recipes.

As far as the recipes themselves go, many are just basic, simple recipes that many of us have cooked for years. There's some pantry staples (making your own ketchup, mayonnaise, and so forth), basic sauces, roasted veggies and the like. There are, however, some lovely recipes in this book that call to be tried out such as "Green Beans and Hazelnuts with Tarragon-Cider Vinaigrette", "Pancetta, Squash and Shallot Risotto", "Jumble-Berry Pie" and "Sea Salt-Honey Caramels".

This book would be better with more photos. Four pages of photos stuck in the middle of the book with pictures of less than 20 recipes is a big turn off for a lot of people when buying a cookbook.
