First, I have to say that it's been forever since I have utilized my blog over here...WHEW! How's everybody been?  Second, I'll not say most, but a lot of you, used to read my blog when I first started blogging here. I moved my blog to my own site and haven't looked back and it's been steadily… MORE

Hi friends.Due to recent events that my husband's family has gone through, I will have to postpone the Beach Get Together that I had originally planned on hosting on August 20th. We just have too much to deal with right now and I can't begin to think about a party at this time. I am truly… MORE

Whew! It's been a long time since I've been over here!  I've been meeting quite a few people from AllRecipes in the last year or so. I see everyone is having get togethers, so I thought I would throw out an invitation to my fellow Pac NW'ers to attend an AR Beach Bash here in Washington… MORE

Well, here we are sitting, contemplating, relaxing and listening to the sprinkling rain on the aluminum roof of this old fifth wheel and both Bob and I have a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment. Accomplishments of many things and the satisfaction that goes a MORE

I spent a lot of time this afternoon outside in this beautiful weather we're having. We're getting a small tease of summer. We don't really get too warm until after mid-July in this area. The baby is getting braver... And he's hooongry... So Mama Bird stops in r MORE

...Got out of town on a boat going to Southern islands...I've had this song running through my head all afternoon. I wonder why?? Tonight was French Polynesia, and I felt I should have held dinner and lit the dang tiki torches! On the menu: Potato Appetizers http://re MORE

Today Bob and I ventured to Nepal. To be perfectly honest, I really didn't know what to expect as far as taste goes. Of course, I got grossed out reading about some of the cuisine and, yes, Nepalese people do eat yak, but I can't exactly waltz into Fred Meyer, Win 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!
