I have a chunk of my paycheck that has to go to something so well.. I have to be the one to lay down the hammer sometimes on spending. This book is made for people that receive snap benefit I love getting cookbooks from Netgalley.
This book is made for people that receive snap benefits. We don't qualify for that and honestly it scares me to think that we could be there. Anyone could be there. I have friends that do.

Yes, four bucks. This book works for my family also. I don't like processed foods. I rarely cave in and get them. This book makes simple cooking taste good. I've got tons of cookbooks on whole food cooking but they can get very pricey. Don't believe me? Check the prices of grass fed beef in your area. It will make your mama scream.

Now the long version : I backed this on Kickstarter last year because I felt strongly about the concept behind the book.
I want to support this like crazy: I created this cookbook as the capstone project for my master's degree in Food Studies at NYU. I wanted to make something that not only summed up the work I had done during my studies, but also had a useful life outside of academia.
