About this Blog

I’m so glad you are here!
The Domestic Diva is a food blog for home cooks featuring tried and true southern recipes to help you meal plan delicious homemade meals for your family.

We don’t use fancy ingredients here. Most recipes use real, simple ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry.

I hope you enjoy these homemade recipes from my southern kitchen as much as my family does.

The History of this Blog

I began blogging back in 2004 as a way to document my first pregnancy. Later in 2005, the Domestic Diva, the domain thedomesticdiva.org was officially created (a Christmas gift from my husband).

On The Domestic Diva you’ll find tried and true southern recipes to help you meal plan delicious home-cooked meals for your family.

As Seen On

The Domestic Diva has featured a variety of different topics over the years but one thing has remained the same, my love for sharing simple, delicious southern recipes.

The Domestic Diva has been a blog ambassador for various online campaigns. I’ve worked with and created content for various brands like: Walmart, Velveeta, Sharpie, Lee jeans, Carmex, and many more.

The Domestic Diva has also been mentioned in the following books: The Digital Mom Handbook & 10,001 Ways to Live Large on a Small Budget.

Meet the Cook

Heather The Domestic Diva

My name is Heather. I’ve been been sharing my story online as a blogger for almost 20 years and in that time I’ve had the opportunity to work with brands both big and small.

Some of my most recognized work as a blogger has been my part as one of the original members of Walmart Moms, the Eat-in Friday Velveeta It! Kitchenista, Sharpie Squad Ambassador, and many more.

Throughout the week I work on my blog bringing fresh new content to you, the reader, and homeschooling my two high school boys. My oldest will graduate this year!

On the weekends you can find me cooking up a new recipe, hiking the nature trails in my hometown, or cleaning the house, which is my least favorite thing to do.

“The most important work you will ever do will be within the walls of your home. “

Harold B. Lee

“I’m going to make everything around me beautiful, that will be my life.”

“Into the forest I go, to lose my mind and find my soul.”


“Sometimes we forget to, or feel guilty when, we take time to nourish our own souls. It is not selfish to spiritually fill ourselves because we need that time to find the delicate balance in our lives. Only then can we truly be of service to others. ”

Elizabeth @ejboykin51 about Cinnamon Swirl Coffeecake Recipe

I made this oatmeal this morning despite not really liking oatmeal, bananas, or walnuts in general. I have no explanation as to why this happened. But I’m glad I did because it was delicious, fairly healthy, and so quick to make!

Shasta @shastabrooke about Banana Nut Oatmeal

I have to say that I’m a Southerner that has never liked grits. I would make them for the family though. I made these and tried them. They were so good and creamy! I will continue to make/eat these grits. So easy and yummy!

Leigh Ann @sweetheart0903 about Southern Cheese Grits Recipe

A little slice of deliciousness! I have made this for a couple of family events and has now officially become my new “go to” dessert for events because it goes together quickly and easily and can be prepared a day ahead of time and also because I get a lot of requests for it.
