From the Little Yellow Kitchen

We are two twenty-something year old gals who are best buds with a common love of cooking! We started our adventures in cooking and bloggin in a tiny apartment near the beach in San Diego and yes, the kitchen was very small and very yellow.

Here in the LYK you will find everything from cheap and healthy spins on everyday meals to the most sinful of desserts! Our goal is to give you simple recipes that will satisfy any palate, impress any guest and of course leave you wanting more.

Open-Face Tomato Sandwich {with creamy feta spread}

Oregano, Walnut & Feta Pesto

You’ve probably heard about the fires going on here in San Diego. Our prayers are will all those who are being affected. Fortunately, we are by the beach and far enough away from the fires that our air quality is still good and our homes are safe ....more

Roasted Turkey, Brie & Apple Butter Wrap

For Mother’s Day weekend, although I wasn’t able to be with my Momma, I know she would have loved these tasty wraps. The smokey roasted turkey, and the sweet and tangy spiced apple butter spread remind me a little bit like the holidays and cooking in the kitchen together. The creamy brie and the crisp […] ...more

Summer Squash Crostini {with ricotta & lemon}

Gluten-Free Quinoa Meatless Meatballs {with Marinara}
