Hello and welcome to my little corner of the internet! I'm Leanne and this is What's Cookin' with the Johnstons! Don't worry, we're cooking more than just food around here - I write about family, faith, healthy living, food, and finances. I'm a modern hippie who loves chocolate chip cookies, organization, and theology. I am proud that I can make homemade yogurt and have raised over $14,000 for breast cancer research in 5 years.
Jarrod and I were married on July 4, 2009. Together Jarrod and I balance two full-time jobs in ministry, church involvement, and our precious little boy. Prior to getting married, I graduated from college and graduate school, overdrew my checking account many (many!) times, and taught myself how to cook. Jarrod and I budget and will become debt-free sometime in mid-2013 after paying off over $100,000 in student loan debt. We are passionate about peace, the United Methodist Church, budgeting, living below our means, healthy living, and finding a cure for (breast) cancer.

What's Cookin' with the Johnstons was started as the Louisiana Johnstons in May of 2010 to chronicle our family adventures living in Louisiana. In April of 2011 we purchased the What's Cookin' with the Johnstons domain and began blogging under that name. We receive about 4,400 unique page views a month.
