No-Recipe Recipes, The New York Times Cooking
This cookbook from the popular New York Times website and mobile app NYT Cooking features 100 vividly photographed no-recipe recipes to make weeknight cooking more inspired and delicious. Sam Sifton, the founding editor of New York Times Cooking, makes improvisational cooking easier than you think and his no-recipe recipes—each beautifully photographed—focus on 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. Recipes include Fried Egg Quesadillas, Pizza without a Crust, Weeknight Fried Rice, Pasta with Garbanzo, Roasted Shrimp Tacos, Chicken with Caramelized Onions and Croutons and Oven S’Mores. This is freestyle, relaxed cooking at its best.
