Cantaloupe & Mint Popsicles http://www.fromthelittleyellowkitchen.com/2014/08/25/cantaloupe-mint-popsicles/ http://www.fromthelittleyellowkitchen.com/2014/08/25/cantaloupe-mint-popsicles/#comments Tue, 26 Aug 2014 04:00:12 +0000 http://www.fromthelittleyellowkitchen.com/?p=12993 popsicle2

We went backpacking a few weekends ago. My pack was bigger than I am and I was exhausted by the end of it.

Chris pushed me out of my comfort zone with this adventure and I thanked him. While it was a little rough climbing at that altitude with no cardio training, I don’t regret it. Thank goodness for barre classes that build up my muscles!

The views were spectacular and now I can officially say I’ve gone without a … Read more...

Coconut & Oat Banana Bread {nut and dairy-free} http://www.fromthelittleyellowkitchen.com/2014/07/30/coconut-oat-banana-bread-nut-and-dairy-free/ Thu, 31 Jul 2014 04:07:43 +0000 http://www.fromthelittleyellowkitchen.com/?p=12982 coconut & oat banana bread_lyk1

Recently, I have been finding myself scouring the kitchen for a little snack that didn’t involve ice cream. I found some all-too-ripe-bananas, so naturally, banana bread was calling. Coincidentally, my man had been asking for some of that homemade goodness for over a few weeks now, but it was just too darn hot to bring myself to turn the oven on to bake bread.

Well, after my voracious snack hunt went down, I caved and used the mushy bananas … Read more...

Open-Face Tomato Sandwich {with creamy feta spread} http://www.fromthelittleyellowkitchen.com/2014/07/22/open-face-tomato-sandwich-with-creamy-feta-spread/ http://www.fromthelittleyellowkitchen.com/2014/07/22/open-face-tomato-sandwich-with-creamy-feta-spread/#comments Wed, 23 Jul 2014 04:07:34 +0000 http://www.fromthelittleyellowkitchen.com/?p=12968 tomatosandwich4

I’m still thinking about Italian tomatoes. I could eat them all day, every day…and I did for 2 weeks.

The tomatoes in Italy are so flavorful and sweet that even the seemingly unripe, green-ish tomatoes are better than any tomato I’ve had in America. Their tomatoes taste how a tomato should taste yet that flavor is still beyond your imagination unless you’ve had one.

I’ve had canned San Marzano tomatoes and I know those will greatly alter the flavor of … Read more...

Summer Peach Salad_lyk3

We celebrated the marriage of Marianne & Gio, with many friends, halfway around the world and it was amazing! Let me tell you, those Italians know how to throw  a wedding party. 5 course dinner with a ridiculously huge buffet of appetizers beforehand, complete with a prosciutto tree … Read more...

I blogged this as soon as I finished the last bite. SO GOOD. You need this, you all need this in your life.

coconut milk chia pudding_lyk3 

Last night it took 5 quick minutes to throw all the ingredients in a jar, shake it up, and wait for it to set  overnight into that chia seed pudding glory. If that isn’t the definition of simple, I don’t know what is.

I am a busy little bee these days and I need simple, quick, … Read more...

Grilled Salmon & Zucchini Kabobs {with Yogurt Sauce} http://www.fromthelittleyellowkitchen.com/2014/05/27/grilled-salmon-zucchini-kabobs-with-yogurt-sauce/ http://www.fromthelittleyellowkitchen.com/2014/05/27/grilled-salmon-zucchini-kabobs-with-yogurt-sauce/#comments Wed, 28 May 2014 04:02:05 +0000 http://www.fromthelittleyellowkitchen.com/?p=12915 salmon6

Fish skewers just might be my go to summer dish. I’m in love with the crisp outside of the flakey fish, the smoky flavor from the charcoal, and the lack of dishes.

It’s a light and healthy meal that takes less time than most to make. My first fish kabob was this one which included prosciutto woven between the layers…it was a winner. Then the salmon in our freezer led to me try another spin on the kabob and I … Read more...
