Savory, simple, and satisfying. Leanne Brown does a wonderful job of capturing all three in her recipe book Good and Cheap: Eat Well on $4/Day.

She starts with inspiring the reader with the idea that cooking in itself is satisfying, not only to the stomach but to the soul. Brown’s  recipes rely on satisfying the body through fruits and vegetable-based-meals instead of “cheap carbohydrates to stave off hunger.” All recipes are easily modifiable which empowers the reader to cook as they desire.

Leanne Brown puts it best, “I want you to tailor things to your taste. Improvisation is the soul of great cooking!”

– Amen!
