I thought I would post an update picture on my recycled container garden which is growing by leaps and bounds...if everything produces, I'll have fresh produce coming out my ears!! I have tomatoes, peppers...several kinds, parsley, cilantro, mint, dill, mixed let MORE

First off, I have to apologize if this blog is lame...I'm exhausted! I've been up at 4 am every morning all week. I have to take Bob to meet his shuttle van by 6 am and I'm the type of person who, once I'm up, I'm up. Tonight was our Swedish dinner: Swedish Meatballs II, Hasselback Potatoes MORE

   Tonight was a food trip to Portugal! I have to say if I can actually visit there before I die, I will die happy! Bob helped me a little with some of the harder stuff tonight, so we need to give him a round of applause, I'll get that in a minute. Yesterday, I got a goo MORE

Just another random picture blog...I've been practicing some new things with my camera and I hope you enjoy them! It's rare to see a group of hunting osprey, such as these, flying over the Columbia, fishing. I like how the reflection got caught on the kitty's face...kind of weird! Of co MORE

Hi, everyone! Bob and I have been talking it over and since he is set to start radiation in less than 2 weeks, he'll be out of commission for a while. So we mulled it over and decided to let you all be involved in this project to an extent.  There is going to come a time, after a few… 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

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!
