Well, tonight I partied on the coast of Cuba! At least, that's how that dinner made me feel. All the recipes I found on AR: Cuban Water Bread http://allrecipes.com/recipe/cuban-water-bread/detail.aspx?prop31=1 Sea Bass Cuban Style… MORE

 This morning I decided that I was going to treat my husband to a gourmet dinner as a "just because I love you" type of thing. I like to do that every now and then. He always mans the barbeque whenever we decide to smoke. Safeway has prime ribs on sale for $5.99 a pound right now and I… MORE

 I already had another big dog, named Sitka, when I got Puppa. I didn't want another dog, and I wanted to give Sitka away because that dog and I never got along or saw eye-2-eye on things. Our friends had a neighbor across the street who's dog had puppies, and my husband took me over there… MORE

 I live in a little corner of Southwest Washington state called Longview. Actually, it's one of the 20 largest cities in Washington, although it's hard for me to think of it as a city, it's still called going into town here. And if you drive through Longview and cross the sign, you're in… MORE

 Tonight was India night. The menu was exclusively the courtesy of AR! Tandoori Chicken II, Roomali Roti, Tomato Chutney II, Atta (whole wheat) Halwa, and Mango Lassi I. This RV smells like I would imagine a market place in Calcutta to smell like: cardamom, curry, cinnamon,… MORE

My whole life it seems I have really been intimidated by yeast. Since starting this blog, I figured it was high time that I just--in the immortal words of the Eagles--Get Over It! The better part of yesterday was spent reading bread making articles, asking questions on the RE (if you need to… MORE

I had made an orange stuffed roasted chicken before and it was fantastic. I think I say that about anything that my husband will eat without complaint. I went to the store yesterday and found blood oranges on sale for 99 cents a pound. I don't know if this is a good price or not, but I'm game,… MORE

Whew...I'm so full and tired,  I hope I have enough energy to write this! A lot of fret and stress went into making this simple one-pot meal. I was going to make a dessert, but after eating the Zuivan, I just can't...no room.  Mongolian people do not use that many ingredients in… MORE

Dave is not just an ordinary black cat! First off, she picked me, I didn't pick her! I've never been partial to black cats before, I like Siamese and orange cats. But a co-worker, over 5 years ago, brought Dave to the office to give to someone else who decided he didn't want a female cat, so I… MORE

About Me
I've been married to my husband for over 8 years. My husband is a cancer survivor. We live in SW Washington state by Mt. St. Helens, but I'm originally from Forks, the little town made famous by the Twilight movies. My blog is called Baked Lava www.bakedlava.com and I'm currently cooking my way around the world. I write a monthly column for our local newspaper called Life in an RV and that site is www.valleybugler.com. I've had my blog featured in Trailblazer Magazine. I love my recycled container garden and I love to create new recipes. I rarely follow a recipe to the letter, unless it involves baking. My husband & I don't have children unless you count the 4-legged variety...we have 4 of those: Puppa, Sasha, KiKi & Super Dave the Girl Cat. I am a prize-winning nature photographer.
My favorite things to cook
I don't have really a favorite thing to cook, per say...I'm not afraid to cook anything. I've recently taught myself how to can and make bread. I still have no great love of making cookies. I'm getting very well-versed in worldwide cuisine, as I'm cooking my way around the world. I love to create new recipes and rarely, anymore, do I have one that flops, but it does and will happen...the road to hell was paved with good intentions, or so they say. My favorite cuisine in this worldwide culinary adventure has been, so far, Belgium...fantastic food! I also am partial to Vietnamese, Korean, Azerbaijani and Hungarian cuisine...and Middle Eastern food kicks @ss!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite family cooking tradition is the weekly international meals that I prepare. The tradition is that my blog readers choose what country they would like to see from week to week and I cook an entire meal for 4 people with a budget of $20. Right now I am in the middle of my "Austerity" project where we are solely eating from the freezers and cupboards...you really have to creative to do this and I am making up recipes as I go...I have used a few AR recipes and credit back to them, though.
My cooking triumphs
I've had several of my original recipes published, I've had my blog featured in a magazine, I now write a monthly food column based on my blog for our local newspaper and I'm already one year into my cooking venture of Around the World in an RV. I am a Food Buzz featured publisher, I'm on PetitChef, RecipesUS and Foodista among many, many other cooking websites. I guess it's safe to say that due to my cooking, I have now ventured into the world of food blogging and into a smaller group of us fellow global food bloggers and I've made some amazing friends.
My cooking tragedies
There have been several and there aren't enough characters in the 1000 allotted to list them all down!
