I love Yucon Gold Potatoes! It’s almost the only potatoes I ever use in the kitchen anymore. I may buy the occasional red or white potatoes especially if they’re on sale or if a particular recipe calls for them but my go-to potato is the yucon gold.
It could be a bit pricey at times but I think it’s worth it. The flavor is so much richer and who can resist that pretty golden color!
Here’s a couple of recipes using these golden potatoes. Perfect now that the weather is again cooler.
This is one of our favorite soups, oxtail soup. It is a very simple soup packed with flavor and vitamins. It is a very versatile soup and you can change up the type of vegetables you add to it. If oxtails is not your thing, you can use another cut of beef to your liking (beef short ribs is very good for this dish). My eldest daughter loves oxtails though, and this is one of the favorite ways she likes it. … Read entire article »
This is based on the Filipino Afritada recipe which my family has gotten to simply calling chicken stew. Which, basically, is what it is. I like it because, well, you can only have fried chicken so often (their favorite), and this has both starch and vegetables and a hearty gravy all in one pot so it’s perfect … Read entire article »

I try to plant these long beans in our garden every year that I can find seeds. There was a time when the only place I could find the seeds was at the Asian markets or have seeds sent to me by my mom. For the last couple of years though, I have been finding them at Home Depot or Lowe’s.
They are just as easy to grow as the regular green beans. They are climbers though, so you’ll have to make sure they have something to climb on.
Once they get started putting out, they can be quite prolific. We were having them for our veggie dish almost everyday and I still managed to freeze some for later!
Here are a couple of recipes using these type of beans but if you don’t have long beans, you can use regular green beans and it would still be delicious!

I made another facebook inspired recipe last night which was just the perfect thing to usher in the fall season and kick off the all-things-pumpkin extravaganza.
The Not So Desperate Housewife posted this Pumpkin Crisp recipe and it looked so good, I just had to try it. Besides, I already had all the ingredients on hand so it was easy to put together. And was it ever easy! It was a matter of opening cans and packages and dumping them in a dish. It kind of reminded me of my sister-in-law’s cherry dump cake.
So have you pulled out your arsenal of pumpkin flavored recipes yet? Which on did you try first? Leave me a link!

Ok, so Domestic Diva is not exactly what comes to mind when describing myself, but this weekend I think I may have had a moment. That’s right, I have my mommy homemaker moments too!
Saturday, according to my daughter, was a perfectly beautiful pre-fall weather. It was 80 degrees, it was sunny and it was just slightly breezy. I had a sweater on. I wanted 90 degrees and humidity. I want summer back! I’m not quite ready for fall yet
Grumbling about yet another shopping stint for the girl, we rewarded ourselves with an al fresco lunch which kind of made up for the speedy arrival of autumn temps. We bought KFC for those left at home and ended up relaxing for the rest of the evening.
