Theme: Rice/Noodles Cookbook: Thai Food by David Thompson Wow, how time flies! It’s like I’ve barely blinked and five weeks have passed since I last blogged! I am so behind in the Cookbook Challenge and my posts, I almost don’t know where to begin blogging again! I guess that’s why I keep putting off starting […]


Theme: Leaf Cookbook: Women’s Weekly Cook – How to cook absolutely everything Sorry that it has been so quiet here on My Food Trail and also on Twitter. Ever since I’ve gotten back from my US trip, it has been really hard to find the time to blog and once you have been out of […]


Theme: Thai Cookbook: In the Kitchen by Allan Campion & Michele Curtis I don’t have any dedicated Thai cookbooks so I had to think about which cookbook to look through for a Thai theme recipe. I’ve had the ‘In the Kitchen’ cookbook for a while but haven’t used it yet so I decided my Thai […]


Theme: Tangy Cookbook: The New Mrs Lee’s Cookbook: Nonya Cuisine by Mrs Lee Chin Koon A few years ago, I got hubby cooking classes with Tony Tan for his birthday. My boss thought it was hilarious that I was buying hubby a present that was actually benefitting me, but he failed to understand that hubby […]


Theme: Rice Cookbook: Everyday Favourites by Mrs Leong Yee Soo The obvious choice for rice theme week would have been fried rice or risotto, but I’ve strayed away from using the rice grain and used rice flour for my Cookbook Challenge recipe this week. Fried radish cake is better known as fried carrot cake or […]


Theme: Vietnamese Cookbook: Secrets of the Red Lantern by Pauline Nguyen I’m a week behind in the Cookbook Challenge but shall be aiming to catch up by the end of this week! Week 17’s theme was Vietnamese and it prompted me to look back through my 2007 Vietnam trip photos. We weren’t into food as […]


Theme: Noodles Cookbook: Fast Chicken by The Australian Women’s Weekly I have fallen behind in my posting – I really don’t know where all my spare time goes! I think I have also partly lost my blogging mojo and blogging has become a bit of a chore rather than something I enjoy! Not to worry […]


Theme: Japanese Cookbook: delicious. quick smart cook by Valli Little I absolutely love Japanese food, but don’t actually own one single Japanese cookbook! There aren’t many Japanese only cookbooks available for sale at department stores and the ones I have seen don’t really appeal to me. I know how to make sushi and sashimi and […]

A while back I planted some spring onion seedlings and in what seemed like no time, they sprouted and were ready to harvest… all at the same time! I turned to trusty Google to find a recipe that called for a lot of spring onions and decided on a spring onion pancake. I’m not sure […]


Homemade Chinese Barbecue Pork

Another easy weeknight meal I make once in a while is Chinese BBQ pork (char siu). When eating out at a Chinese restaurant, I tend to stay away from BBQ pork, but that is because most of the time it is overcooked, dry and hard. The BBQ pork I make at home is always moist, […]
