We are two British guys who live in Lincolnshire, UK with our dog Max, who is a 5 year old cockerpoo. We both enjoy cooking for family, friends and the dog! We are both relatively new to blogging, starting this blog 4 years ago as a joint hobby. We want to develop this over time as we learn. As you can see we are slow learners! Please feel free to comment and leave advice and tips…
We decided the best way to identify us was British Bloke Cooking1 and British Bloke Cooking2, if you know UK TV you will understand this ‘pun’. Anyway, as I do most of the copy/writing and the hard slog, lol, I’m gonna be BBC1! The other bloke is gonna be BBC2…and the good thing about this is, that his fav’ tv prog’ of all time is “The Great British Bake Off”, which started life on BBC2…hopefully, with some prodding, he’ll enter next year!
We have been amazed by the “traffic” and the generosity of bloggers in general. We’re humbled and encouraged by the response so far…please carry on telling us if its wrong or doesn’t work for you. We do that all the time to each other, because we believe that honest and constructive critique helps us to grow. Thank you so much for visiting our little site and spending your valuable time here.
We are really enjoying our blogging hobby and are grateful for so much positive feedback. Readers and bloggers you are amazing, thank you! If you would like to set us a challenge or fancy a new recipe, please feel free to leave a note in the comments section…not promising anything other than good old home cooking, but we will give it a go! Once again many thanks for visiting, you are always welcome!
Four years ago, when we started this blog, we were living in Cornwall. Not far from ten lovely beaches. We were getting about 200 hits a month back then, we’re now getting about 2000 and our most popular recipe by far is our Old Fashioned Bread Pudding.  We realise this is nothing compared to others in the blogosphere, but we’re very happy that two non professional cooks and writers are even getting that many. We are amazed at the diversity of people visiting. For example, here is a list of Countries People Have Viewed The Blog: United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, India, Ireland, South Africa, Philippines, Denmark, New Zealand, Germany, Malta, France, Indonesia, Pakistan, Turkey, Spain, Hong Kong, Brazil, Russian Federation, Sweden, Slovenia, Austria, Swaziland, Netherlands, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Israel, Greece, Morocco, Serbia, Chile.
We can only say thank you to those of you who do visit and big hugs to those of you who come back!

    • Thank-you so much! We really appreciate it. We’re a bit back logged at the moment so hope to get round to doing a post over the weekend or early next week. Once again, thank-you is very kind.

  3. I’ve nominated you for the One Lovely Blog Award. Award recipients post the One Lovely Blog Award icon on their blog, mention the blog that nominated them, share seven fun or interesting facts about themselves and nominate five other blogs for the award. I hope you “do” awards and you don’t mind me mentioning your wonderful blog in one of my posts.

  4. Do you take requests? My Welsh mother used to make the best rice pudding in the world. Rice pudding is one of those polarizing dishes–people either love it or loathe it. As you can guess, I’m in the love it category. I hope you are, too. My mom’s was baked and she used canned condensed milk. I never bothered learning how to make it, and of course she didn’t use a recipe. I’m hoping one or both of the Two British Blokes know how to make a classic rice pudding. Nanette

    • Love the idea of requests it’s challenging and interesting as well as being friendly! We’ve had a chat and both of our mums made it too. So we’re going to get the ingredients tomorrow and make it over the weekend, we’ll post as soon as we can and let you how it turns out! Is second request we’ve had today. I was speaking to an old school friend whose young daughter has ‘gone vegetarian’ and she wants us to post some veggie recipes…it’s going to be a kitchen weekend!
