A Taste of Yellow

Barbara at Winos and Foodies posted her 'A Taste of Yellow' roundup. If you remember, we all posted something yellow in support of LiveStrong Day. There were 148 fantastic entries~ and she did an amazing job of putting them all together.

If you can think of something yellow~these food bloggers used it! Yummy desserts included Lime Mango Sorbet, Lemon cheesecake with Gingersnap Crust, Lemon Bars, Banana Cream Pie, Lemon Berry Cream, Peanut Butter Banana Cream Pie, Key Lime Pie. I posted my Limoncello Cheesecake. There were lots of breads like Banana Bread, and a Very Corney Cornbread.

Yellow meals included Sole with a Corriander and Carrot Puree, Fresh Lemon Pasta with Mint, Stuffed Yellow Peppers, Asparagus Custard, Asparagus with Blender Hollandaise. An all time southern favorite Macaroni and Cheese. Who wouldn't love a Margarita Style Polenta Pizza, or Swordfish with Mango Salsa.

If all that makes you thirsty have a Sunshine Smoothie.

The one that I'm most excited about is Dandelion Syrup! I'm still not sure what to do with it...but it caught my attention.

The purpose of the Taste of Yellow event was to bring awareness to LifeStrong Day. Most of these posts have a personal story of cancer; the fight and the hope. Take a minute to click a few and visit their blogs. A great southern kudos to Barbara and all of her work!

Thanks y'all,

Sandi, thankyou for visiting me at pbjonrye and for looking at my lemon bar recipe. Hope you give this one a try and let me know what you think. They're a healthier version of lemon bars but still taste yummy!

Thanks so much for listing my Key Lime Pie. I am going to try that Key Lime Martini you suggested. That sounds so fun.

Hi Sandi,

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Love your little round up and I hope you enjoy the pizza.

I should mention though that it might be a good idea to make the base a bit thicker and perhaps even pre-grill the bases a bit before you whack it in the oven with the cheese. My base was a bit too thin and soft so we ended up having to eat it with a fork and knife :)

Thank-you for this story.
Yellow is my favorite color.

Carla said...

I love the picture of your yellow flowers. And I'm going to check out that dandilion recipe right now. Sounds like a good one.

Hi Sandi,

Thank you so much for visit and the link. The salsa is so easy and versatile; I hope you try it. Costco produce isn't as exciting as the farmers' market, but I must've been lucky that day. :)

sandi said...

Dandelion wine? Now that has to be a southern thang!
Augustina~ I will give your lemon bars a try...stay tuned.
Ciao~ I love key lime pie~ we will be having it this summer for sure.
ilingc~ Pizza is always great.
Robin~ Thanks for stopping in, I always enjoy visiting the FreckleFarm!
Carla~ If we hold out maybe we can get some dandelion wine!
Susan~ That looks like a great salsa. I'll be trying it as well

Sandi - I can't stop thinking about your post for Limoncello Cheesecake. That looks amazing! It has been years since I have been brave enough to try baking a cheesecake - this may be the one!

sandi said...

Beachy~ I'll make sure you don't miss the next event.
Mallow~ The cheesecake is really a 'must try'. You won't believe how easy it is.

Your Daylillies are beautiful. My oarnge ones are just opening. My Mom had some of the best colors. Lemon Yellow was one but she had a peach color and a crimson. I kept meaning to dig up some. Too late now.

Kristen said...

That such a great event and so many worthy entries!

sandi said...

Momma Bear~ I have some beautiful daylillies, they are such a wonderful flower...I need to make a post about them!
Kristen~ It was a fun event wasn't it? Thanks!

I've just seen your comment on my blog (!). You've done a great mini round up here, it was such a good fun event, even though a serious one too.

Barbara said...

Thank you Sandi for your kind words and the link to a Taste of Yellow. The Dandelion Syrup really appeals to me too.
