About Leanne Brown
Leanne Brown is a food-studies scholar and avid home cook in NYC by way of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
Most recently, she wrote "Good and Cheap," a free PDF cookbook for people with very tight budgets, particularly those on SNAP/Food Stamp benefits. It has been downloaded more than 500,000 times and is now available in print from Workman Publishing.
Leanne also spearheaded a project to fund a print run of "Good and Cheap" to get it into the hands of those who can't afford a copy. In 2014, she shipped 9,000 free copies of the printed book to people in need. For the new print edition, Leanne and her publisher donate one copy of the book for each copy sold at retail.

A generous mix of essays, stories and nearly 100 dazzling recipes, Good Enough is about self-compassion, and knowing it's OK to have a cheese plate for dinner. About the practice of gratitude, and ten breakfasts to start your morning right, like Creamy Hands-Off Scrambled Eggs. About cooking as self-care, and healing your spirit with a comforting Salmon Dinner Pie. About overcoming barriers like social anxiety, and embracing entertaining with Smoky Honey Shrimp Tacos with Spicy Fennel Slaw. About knowing it’s hard but you’re completely worth it—and indulging yourself with My Spicy Umami Noodles. About giving yourself permission to feel great—so go ahead, have another Sticky Toffee Cookie. There are no judgments here.
And ultimately, it's about embracing the joy of imperfection to find peace and happiness in and out of the kitchen. Because good enough is great.
