I’m starting to think that me & Nigella Lawson don’t get along. Ok, maybe not Nigella herself, but I’m talking about her recipes. I bought two of her cookbooks when I started this blog, and if I am to be honest, it was because of her popularity. The first recipe I tried was her pistachio […]


Recipe: Easy Peasy Lemonade Scones

Yes, you read right. Scones made with lemonade! This, along with my banana cake, were the only two baking recipes I attempted before I started this food blog! These scones are a huge hit every time I make them and best of all, they only require 3 ingredients and no electric mixer. At work, I […]


Recipe: Caramel Cupcakes with Caramel Icing

Forced with a choice, I would choose chocolate over caramel but as I have never made caramel anything before, I chose to make caramel cupcakes to bring over to the previously mentioned poker night. This recipe comes from Australian Women’s Weekly Bake, which is turning out to be my most utilised cookbook! The original recipe […]


Recipe: Chocolate Buttermilk Cake

Every time I see the Lindt 100g blocks on special for less than $2 a block, I always go and buy a few of the 70% ones. They are starting to pile up now because I haven’t made anything chocolatey for a while so I went hunting for a chocolate cake recipe. Most of the […]


We have our own lemon tree in our backyard, but due to the previous owner’s many years of neglect, the lemon tree was badly infected with gall wasps. Gall wasps tend to attack citrus trees, and bore into the branches and create nests. The gall wasps nests’ show up as huge lumps in the branches […]


Recipe: Banana Muffins

I was trying to decide between buying Stephanie Alexander’s Cook’s Companion cookbook or Margaret Fulton’s Encyclopedia of Food & Cookery – both have good reviews but I didn’t want to get both (and they are expensive). They teach you about food and cooking rather than just containing recipes. While you can flip through cookbooks at […]


I thought it was hilarious when Jessica Simpson was asked if she wanted a buffalo wing, (on Newlyweds – please don’t judge but I watched every episode of the four seasons!), responded “No thanks, I don’t eat buffalos.” Ah, Jessica, buffalos don’t have wings! I have since found out it is quite common for the […]


Recipe: Chocolate & Pistachio Muffins

Nowadays when we are going over to someone’s house, I use the opportunity to try out a recipe and bring some baked goodies along with me. This works out well for me as I don’t end up eating it all myself for fear of being wasteful but I still get to see if I would […]


Recipe: Marble Mini-cakes

Baking every weekend has now become a regular event for me. It may not seem like much to all you seasoned bakers, but before I started this blog, I could count the number of times I baked on one hand! I have gone through my modest collection of cookbooks and made a list of the […]


Recipe: Zucchini Slice

by April@MyFoodTrail on July 30, 2009

in Cooking, Recipes, Sides

I never grew up eating zucchini so I am not a big fan of eating it on its own. Lately though, I have been adding it to dishes like my glass noodle minced pork. Zucchini actually doesn’t taste of much when it is mixed up with other ingredients in a dish but at least I […]
