Best of the Foodie Blogs: Ten at Ten (9)


Wow, Wednesdays certainly do seem to come round fast, but it is indeed that time of the week when we bring you ten of our favourite blog posts from the UK food blogging community from the past week. Once again, there were so many brilliant posts to choose from – I could probably have highlighted 100 or more!

First up I have to share these wonderful cake balls from The Caked Crusader. I am a sucker for cake but do find making cake balls very time consuming and, quite frankly, frustrating. The Caked Crusader used a nifty gadget to make hers and includes some great ideas for decorating them.

Last Thursday was St. David’s day but I didn’t get round to making anything special this year. However, I did discover some amazing looking Welsh Cakes on Fab Food and a delicious-sounding St. David’s Day pie over at Food Genie. Definitely two recipes I will be trying out myself.

I have discovered someone who shares my love of making bread. Emma from Kitchen Goddess (in training!) shares her simple crusty loaf recipe with us and makes me long for that smell of freshly baked bread.

How could I resist a title like Maple Pecan Sticky Bars? The photos of these beauties over at Farmersgirl Kitchen had me drooling and wishing I could have one immediately with my coffee. Do you think she’d send me some over?

Do you love eating out? I have to agree with amateur food ramblings when she says that eating out is one of the best things in the world ever! Eating food that you haven’t had to slave over and then leave someone else to do the washing up has to be the ultimate treat surely?

I don’t cook a great deal of vegetarian food myself but this recipe for roast vegetable lasagne from Bangers & Mash has convinced me that I should. The pictures are so gorgeous that I can practically smell the bubbling, cheesy topped lasagne from here.

There is some seriously good looking pizza over on Cooknote this week. I love using my bread machine to make dough for me when I’m short of time so I will definitely be trying out this recipe very soon.

What do you cook when the cupboards are bare? I’m sure we all face this situation, in my case quite often. Anne from Anne’s Kitchen doesn’t let this stand in her way and still rustled up a delicious meal out of very little.

Finally, over on Baking Crazy there is a yummy looking chicken and leek pie for you. A great recipe to try and perfect timing as it is National Pie Week this week.

That’s all for this week, but we’ll be back with more great posts for you next week.

  1. How exciting to have my roast lasagne post included in your round up. Thanks so much! And I’ve really enjoyed looking through everyone else’s blogs here. I can’t wait to have a go at the Welsh Cakes on Fab Food…

      You’re most welcome – it looked delicious. I’m looking forward to trying the welsh cakes too.

  2. So so delighted to be featured in this! Have been away on a school trip so have just seen it. Thank you so much, I hope sharing the ‘eating out’ love has inspired people to book a table somewhere. Also fab to see some blogs I didn’t know about 🙂

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!

The Flea Network Team

Got it!
