We are two 25-year old gals who are best buds with a common love of cooking! We currently reside in a tiny apartment near the beach in San Diego and yes, we have a very small and very yellow kitchen.
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.
Each day we come home to our Little Yellow Kitchen – yes, everything from the counters to the walls to the linoleum floor, is yellow and we have learned to love it – in our little 1970’s apartment and cook a delicious meal, snack or dessert. Oh, and we always make enough to enjoy leftovers for lunch at work the next day!
We are living on a tight budget, as most people are these days, so you won’t find any truffle oil or expensive wines in these parts. We believe a tasty meal doesn’t require a lot of money, can be done in a timely manner and is easier to accomplish than most people think.
In the LYK we recreate basic recipes, altering and mixing ingredients to satisfy our passion for adding a little zest to everything we do. We hope the LYK can encourage you to live deliciously on a budget and always find room for dessert!
We believe in the great value of sharing meals with family and friends and we want to encourage and inspire our readers to take this one step further — before gathering around the dinner table, meet in the kitchen to prepare, create, learn and have fun together.
Whether it be through serving homemade soup and fresh baked rolls to the local homeless every Thursday, preparing meals for church volunteers, or sharing treats with neighbors, we love to give back to our community and we hope to inspire others to do the same.
Little Yellow Note: We love hearing from our readers! Please leave us some love in the comment section of our posts! We enjoy hearing about any additions, subtractions or changes to our recipes. After all, we do believe everyone should add a little zest of their own.
