Retrieve complete list of manually installed packages

I have a Fedora 21 installation that I've built up with lots of packages over the last few months. How can I get yum to show me a list of the packages I installed? Running sudo yum history list shows me only a few lines from history, not all history. For example (output truncated for brevity):

$ sudo yum history list
Loaded plugins: langpacks
ID     | Command line             | Date and time    | Action(s)      | Altered
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    96 |                          | 2015-04-13 13:00 | O, U           |   52 EE
    95 | remove guake             | 2015-04-13 10:23 | Erase          |    1   
    94 | install gthumb           | 2015-04-13 09:47 | Install        |    5

Running sudo yum history list all does print all transactions, but the _Command line_ column is replaced with the _Login user_ column, which is not useful to me. For example (input truncated for brevity):

$ sudo yum history list all
Loaded plugins: langpacks
ID     | Login user               | Date and time    | Action(s)      | Altered
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    96 | Me <username>            | 2015-04-13 13:00 | O, U           |   52 EE
    95 | Me <username>            | 2015-04-13 10:23 | Erase          |    1   
    94 | Me <username>            | 2015-04-13 09:47 | Install        |    5

I could run sudo yum history info for every transaction id, but this seems unnecessarily complicated, when all I want is to do is quickly scan a list of the packages that I manually installed.
