“The $ 5 Foodie: Cook Better, Spend Less, Enjoy More,” by Lucy Holland and Carol Rizzoli, starring Ethan Eron, Amanda Eron and Hugo Rizzoli (2021, independently published)

This family project began when Barnstable residents Carol and Hugo’s three children went to college. Carol shared easy, inexpensive home recipes with them, so to combat expensive eateries, everyone contributed ideas to what started as a website (https://www.thefivedollarfoodie.com/), and now this book. The 55 recipes and 11 menus, many of which are created and photographed in Cape cuisine, are designed to offer high taste and healthy ingredients at a low price, plus provide tips on shopping well and using food at hand. Part of book sales support organizations that provide hunger relief and nutrition education.
