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

I don't think enough people in the world take time to appreciate what's in their own backyard...c'mon, stop and smell the roses, watch a sunset or a sunrise...you'll be suprised at the difference in your day! I challenge myself to a few things each day: to find the beauty, to find the humor MORE

Tonight  we were in Greece, in spirit! I am suprised at how good the food was. To be perfectly honest with you all, I was sorta dreading this country. I just don't like feta cheese and I know that is one of the main ingredients in Greek cuisine. I posted on the recipe exch MORE

I think, by now, it's safe to assume that you all know that I live in an RV, in an RV park that is full of methheads and such. We've had some drama the last couple of days....  The methhead has been out in his car full-force the last couple of days. Vacuuming, re-organizing, whatever it… MORE

 As I am writing this blog, I am sitting here sipping Bob's version of an Irish coffee: 1 shot of Bushmill's Irish Whiskey, 1 shot of Bailey's Irish Cream and top it off with coffee...not too bad, not too bad at all! Tonight's menu consisted of an AR member's personal recipe for Roasted MORE

I wanted you to meet Sasha...or Sausage, Cream Cheese, Sash, Sauce, Little Hound...we have a ton of nicknames for her. Sasha came to live with via our old neighbor, Bill. She was about 10 weeks old when we started babysitting her. Bill was a contractor who sometimes worked nights and if he d MORE

I wanted to make some Mexican food tonight...it's not for my "Trip Around the World in an RV" blog, but a just because blog. I found super good deals on shrimp and cod at the market this morning. I paid $5 for a pound of shrimp and I got the cod for the bargain price of $2.50. It was still r MORE

Tonight we traveled to Thailand and I can really get into this cuisine. This stuff was was so good!! Thai cuisine blends 4 tastes: sweet, spicy, sour and salty. Most dishes try to combine most, if not all, all of these tastes. I made Bob's Thai Beef Salad http://allrecipes.com/recipe/b 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!
