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

Tonight was the night for Italy. What a night! I recieved a compliment from my husband, the likes of which, I would have never expected to fall from his mouth! But I'll get to that. Did you know that Italy's highest peak is Gran Paradiso which is 13,323 feet high? I didn't, either, but… MORE

About Me
I've been married to my husband for almost 10 years. My husband is a cancer survivor. We live in SW Washington state about 30 miles Mt. St. Helens, but I'm originally from Forks, the little town made famous by the Twilight series. First, I am a food writer. My blog is called Baked Lava and I'm currently cooking my way around the world, a meal from every country and territory and lots of original recipes. I feature my original recipes in a monthly column for our local newspaper. I've had my blog featured in Trailblazer Magazine. I love my container garden and the community garden that I've helped get started. My garden passion is growing rare heirloom tomatoes. I admin several garden groups on Facebook. I love to create new recipes. I don't have children unless you count the 4-legged variety. I am a multiple prize-winning nature photographer. I am also a professional cook and work in the food industry and continue to further my education with every opportunity that comes my way.
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. 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. I've recently had several recipes published in a co-op cookbook of international food bloggers.
My cooking tragedies
There have been several and there aren't enough characters in the 1000 allotted to list them all down! My motto? Nothing ventured, nothing gained. You've got nothing to lose by trying something new!
