Best of the Foodie Blogs: Ten at Ten (8)


I have been really thrilled with how many bloggers have asked to do a Ten at Ten post for us. It’s so great to discover a wide range of blogs – some of them good old favourites, but so many of them are new to me. There really is some great talent and wonderful inspiration in the UK food blogging community. 

This week’s great round up of favourite foodie blog posts is by the lovely Sian, who blogs at Fishfingers for tea

I never seem to have enough time to have a good old wander through the blogosphere seeking out new blogs. So to have the chance to do that, with a legitimate reason to boot, has been heaven. Trying to select just 10 posts was difficult, there are some fabulous blogs out there and my reader is groaning again. Not all of the posts I’ve highlighted here come from predominately food blogs, I found some fantastic recipes in the parent blogging world too.

Firstly I came across Emily’s recipe for Pancakes with lemon and white chocolate sauce. I know Shrove Tuesday has been and gone but we haven’t actually got round to having any yet for one reason and another. The sauce here alone may well see me flipping in the kitchen this week.

I have an ongoing love affair with Horlicks. It may be old fashioned but I adore it. So to see it in this divine offering from Ren of Honey Roasted Rhubarb with Malted Milk Custard was like looking at a little piece of heaven. It’s on my list to make as soon as possible.

This Butternut Squash Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting from Helen at The Crazy Kitchen caught my eye next. I bake a lot with bananas, beetroot and carrots but have never considered butternut squash before.

Spoons n Spades is not a new blog to me. Paula’s photography is always stunning and her recipes sound so tempting, this Spiced Honey Roast Vegetable Salad being no exception. It uses halloumi which isn’t something I’ve used a lot before but it started my tummy rumbling.

I’m a sucker for Sticky Toffee Pudding and this Calorie Catastrophe from Fiona at the Coombe Mill blog looks right up my street. As the weather seems to have given up on the idea of being a bit milder then this would be very welcome.

Continuing with the comfort food theme for a while brings us to this Veggie Mince Hotpot from Katie at Feeding Boys and a Firefighter. I mainly tend to use soya mince when my mother-in-law is visiting but we all enjoy it so I should include it more often. I love the cheesy potato topping here and can see it being rather popular with both my husband and daughter.

This Rich Leek Tart from Fab Food will be making an appearance at my table soon. Lovely and simple but sounds so, so delicious.

The Reluctant Housedad brings us this Carrot, Ginger and Orange Soup. A well known blog with some amazing recipes, this soup sounds like the perfect antidote to their recent bout of illness. It always amazes me that something that is so effortless to make can taste so good. You’ve got to love soup really.

Butternut squash makes its second appearance in this Butternut Squash and Spinach Lasagne from The Boy and Me. I tend to steer clear of vegetable lasagne as I’ve eaten rather a lot of watery ones but this sounds perfect and downright tasty.

Thanks to Sian for our Ten at Ten round up this week. See you same time, same place next week.

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at with any questions or comments.

Thank you!

Got it!
