“Books are a uniquely portable magic”
Stephen King, On Writing 

A picture book. A book with pictures. At Walla Walla General Store we are inspired and delighted by books that allow us to disappear into another world. Art books to stretch the possible and question everything, interiors books to show us new patterns and arrangements and ways of living and cookbooks to allow us to travel to Thailand or New York City or anywhere a date palm will grow. We have a small, everchanging collection of titles for various dreams and ponderings. 

You don’t need a recipe. Really, you don’t.
 
Sam Sifton, founding editor of New York Times Cooking, makes improvisational cooking easier than you think. In this handy book of ideas, Sifton delivers more than one hundred no-recipe recipes—each gloriously photographed—to make with the ingredients you have on hand or could pick up on a quick trip to the store. You’ll see how to make these meals as big or as small as you like, substituting ingredients as you go.
 
Fried Egg Quesadillas. Pizza without a Crust. Weeknight Fried Rice. Pasta with Garbanzos. Roasted Shrimp Tacos. Chicken with Caramelized Onions and Croutons. Oven S’Mores. Welcome home to freestyle, relaxed cooking that is absolutely yours.
