You’ve got this!
Good enough is a cookbook, but it’s as much about the healing process of cooking as it is about delicious recipes. It’s about acknowledging the fears and anxieties many of us have when we get in the kitchen, then learning to let them go in the sensory experience of working with food. It’s about slowing down, honoring the beautiful act of feeding yourself and your loved ones, and releasing the worries about whether what you’ve made is good enough. It is.

 A generous mix of essays, stories, and nearly 100 dazzling recipes, Good Enough is a deeply personal cookbook. It's subject is more than Smoky Honey Shrimp Tacos with Spicy Fennel Slaw or Sticky Toffee Cookies; ultimately it's about learning to love and accept yourself, in and out of the kitchen. 

About the author

Leanne Brown vive en la Ciudad de Nueva York con su esposo, Dan Lazin. Se crió en Edmonton, Canadá, donde todavía viven su estupenda familia y muchas de sus personas favoritas. Antes de mudarse a la Ciudad de Nueva York a ella le gustaba andar en bicicleta. Ahora a veces lo hace, pero en otras ocasiones toma el subway o camina. Le gusta correr en el parque hasta quedar bien cansada, comer artículos de repostería en la calle y acostarse tarde. Le encanta lo justo, la ciencia ficción y la fantasía, los alimentos sabrosos y reír.  Le ha encantado cocinar y hornear desde que se dio cuenta de que son las cosas nuestras que más se aproximan a la magia.

Editorial Reviews

“In a world cluttered by confusing messages about food, bodies, and where you belong, Good Enough is a comforting hug, helping you reimagine your relationship to cooking for more joy, flexibility, and fun!”
—Rebecca Scritchfield, RDN, author of Body Kindness 

Good Enough is a cookbook full of tried-and-true, approachable and craveable recipes that will encourage even the most harried home cooks to enter their kitchens. But it's more than that. It's also a personal, moving meditation on the importance of self-care and self-nourishment through life's difficult times. Most of all, it is a testament to the life-changing power of radical acceptance.”
—Gena Hamshaw, author of Power Plates and The Full Helping blog
