Fuss-free recipes on a dime


Cheap does not equal bland in the kitchen of Leanne Brown. Her eBook Good and Cheap gives frugal cooking a makeover, with stunning photos and recipes for simple, delectable meals that cost around $4 or less.

That's within the budget of SNAP, the federal assistance program formerly called food stamps. Brown, a food studies graduate student at New York University, posted a free copy on her website this year as part of her master's thesis; within weeks, it was downloaded more than 200,000 times. She launched a $10,000 Kickstarter fundraiser to print copies for those in need and was astounded to receive $144,681 in pledges.

What makes this book special? It vibrates with encouragement, practical wisdom and inspiration for any cook. It teems with healthy recipes that span the globe. And rather than wax on about the virtue of frugality, it celebrates how good it can taste.
