Roasted Eggplant, Feta & White Bean Dip

by ourtwokitchens on November 18, 2013

Hello! My name is Blake and I am a foodie…. Glad I got that off my chest. There is a fine line between a foodie and someone who just really likes food.  A very fine line. I think one of the worst things about being a foodie (apart from never having any money) is tasting a dish [...]

I have something to tell you and I hope it doesn’t make you think any less of me. I don’t care for pasta. I just don’t get what all the fuss is about. I do however enjoy meatballs and the rich tomato sauce that usually accompanies pasta. And you know what? You can have your [...]

  When I asked my step-father what kind of cake he wanted for his birthday this year, he answered with ‘Orange’. Descriptive, right? I knew what he was thinking though, he wanted something akin to an Orange Madeira Cake. Honestly, I’m not a huge fan of the texture of a Madeira Cake, so I made something [...]

Banana & Blueberry Loaf

by ourtwokitchens on July 28, 2013

Ok I’m the first to admit that you shouldn’t change something that is already amazeballs. And although i don’t think the addition of blueberries to delicious banana bread is as controversial as  these unexpected flavour combos.  But the addition of blueberries to this old favourite is making me one happy blogger! I’m sure you have [...]

I’m continuing the Simple Midweek Meal series with a dish that, when eaten, hugs you from the inside. It’s rich and warming, it’s a bear hug in a bowl. It is also delicious, but that should go without saying. I don’t think anyone would be too shocked by the combination of chocolate and chili. We’ve [...]

Let me set the scene here. It’s Wednesday night, you’re halfway through the working week and that deserves a celebratory glass of Red (Bordeaux for me, please). You’re finishing up glass #2 and you realise that you better eat something soon or your persuasive, tipsy self will start talking you into going out and getting [...]

Chocolate Mint Slice

by ourtwokitchens on June 6, 2013

Chocolate and peppermint is probably my favourite flavour combination. I don’t think I’m alone on this one! It has it’s own wiki page and believe it or not it has its own day!  Sure it’s not a national holiday but it’s nice to be recognized.  Put it in your calendars people! I’m not gonna lie. This choc mint [...]


It was my lovely boyfriends birthday the weekend just gone last month <– Up to date posts, that’s what you get here at OTK! Anywho, since it was his birthday I did what any self respecting blogger does and made him a birthday dessert, so that I had something to blog about he could enjoy a tasty [...]

by ourtwokitchens on May 24, 2013

I spent the morning was browsing on Pinterest last week and I thought I had read wrong when I saw the words ‘Cauliflower Pizza Crust’. I had one of those moments where I got ‘I have to make this… TODAY!’ You already know how much I love cauliflower. So I started looking at all the different recipes [...]


Simple ‘Slaw

by ourtwokitchens on May 16, 2013

Our Two Kitchens love them some ‘slaw. It hasn’t always been this way though. Up until last year I thought coleslaw was nothing more than the ‘salad’ in those sad little foil covered cups, the ones you get at take-away chicken shops. Thankfully that is not the case and I soon discovered that not all [...]
