Every Wednesday at noon, Food section staff members and guests answer your cooking questions. You can submit a question in advance in the box below. Just remember to return when we’re live, or read the transcript after the chat ends.

This week we’re talking about cutting costs in the kitchen with Leanne Brown, author of “Good and Cheap: Eat Well on $4/day." Brown wrote “Good and Cheap” as a free resource to those living on a SNAP budget, and has tips for us all on how to eat without breaking the budget.

The topic of budget-conscious cooking came up in last week’s chat. With grocery prices on the rise, it’s front of mind for many of us, and has been for some time.

You might remember Brown’s Q&A with staff writer Emily Heil from 2020, where she spoke on how to cut your budget and shared the recipe for the Potato Leek Pizza pictured above.

She can help you figure out what’s best for your budget needs. Her new book, “Good Enough” releases on Jan. 12 and covers the emotional side of cooking — how to eat well when you’ve lost your spark in the kitchen. Be sure to check that out too!

Let’s get chatting.
