Late this afternoon, Bob, Bob(the neighbor) and I ventured to China, foodwise. I have to thank Tao for the majority of the recipes...I raided his recipe box! We got some bad news. Our friend, John Cutshall passed away last night. So I dedicate this blog to his mem MORE

Today, Bob & I ventured off to Argentina in search of the perfect steak, and we may have just come close to it. I have made steaks with chimichurri sauce before, so I used my own recipe for the marinade. All the marinades that I looked at on AllRecipes called for parsley, but I watched a MORE

Tonight was all about the flavors of Israel. I have to thank Rachel for most of the information and collaboration on this menu. She lives in Tel Aviv and was just awesome, so I owe her a debt of gratitude. On the menu tonight was a fried Flat Bread, Hummus, Israeli Salad http://allrecipes.c MORE

Tonight we travelled to Russia and the Ukraine...if not in body then in spirit and what a spirit that was! This is the vodka I chose for tonight's feast. Anyone with the audacity to call it Effen vodka, put it on a label and slap it on a bottle earns my respect. I know it wasn't technically fr MORE

Last night was an omen of things to come as I watched the clouds rolling up the Columbia River. We have had beautiful weather the last week with temperatures in the mid-to-upper 60's. But the clouds grew darker and darker and kept rolling on over, no matter how hard I wished for them t MORE

This blog is dedicated to Ken from CA...this is his Root Beer Pork Chop recipe! As a lot of you know, I don't like pork in any form excepting sausage, ham and bacon. It's been 40+ years and I have despaired from ever finding a pork chop recipe that I actually LIKED! Bob, my husband, however, l MORE

Today, we had Korean for a late lunch...so delicious! I had some preconcieved notion that Korean food was fiery hot, and while I'm sure some dishes are, these were not but they were oh, so good! Korea was united until 1948 and that's when it divided into 2 completely different states: North Ko MORE

 I was talking to my husband just last night about how all of this cooking and bad weather is bad for my butt and what do I do today....Beer-Cheese Soup. Well, I had a whole bunch of cheese I needed to clean out of the fridge and a can of beer, not to mention, leftover cauliflower and red… 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

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!
