Best of the Foodie Blogs: Ten at Ten (11)


This week we all seem to have been struck down with yet more colds – it must be that time of year! But, every cloud has a silver lining, and I have been able to sit, tucked up under a warm blanket, and read lots of lovely food blogs. So here are ten of my favourite blog posts from the UK food blogging community for the past week…

I love discovering new blogs so I was very excited when I stumbled upon Alice Can’t Cook. This week Alice shared her signature dish with us, which involved putting lots of things on a tray and cooking them. That’s my kind of cooking! It looked pretty delicious too.

I’m sure there are a few of us who got excited when we had some warm weather last week and started to think about barbecues. If you love a good burger on your barbecue then you must read this useful post by Beignets and Barbecues, full of good advice about making and cooking the perfect burger.

I just couldn’t resist the photographs in this post on Chez Foti – there is nothing better than seeing a child really tucking into their food! The recipe for Lou’s Chicken Fried Rice looks pretty good too – I think I may cook this for my children tonight.

I have to admit, I haven’t tried much Jamaican food before, but this recipe for saltfish and fried dumplings on Food, glorious food has definitely got me interested. It all looks delicious!

With Easter fast approaching, it’s the perfect time to think about seasonal bakes, and who could resist these cute bunny cupcakes from Hungry Squirrel Cakes? I have a set of these bunny rabbit cutters and the children have been asking to make cupcakes. Guess what we’ll be doing in the Easter holidays?

This year I celebrated St Patrick’s Day at my friend’s wedding – an Irish wedding on St Patrick’s Day is great fun! I’ve seen some lovely recipes around but this one for Irish potato farls on Including Cake really caught my eye. It has been added to my list of must makes.

I loved reading this post on Mari’s World, which is actually written by her Mum. She shares with us how her love affair with food started and developed throughout her life. A really interesting read.

Next up I have something a little different to share with you – an amazing video about how to make vegetable soup over on fuss free living. Helen tells me that 400 photos are used in the video and Jen, who is the mastermind behind it, has just had a baby. Congratulations Jen!

This recipe for slow-braised beef and mushroom stroganoff on More Than Toast looks just like my kind of dish. Beef, mushrooms, onions, cider, cream – yes please!

Finally, I thought I’d finish off with a recipe that includes two of my favourite things – cupcakes and chocolate. These Mars chocolate cupcakes by Holly over on Recipes from a Normal Mum look absolutely divine. Another great one for Easter holiday treats, I think.

That’s all for this week. Enjoy reading your way through these and we’ll be back next week with more favourite posts.

  1. Thanks so much for the mention. My boy does indeed enjoy his food, but Chicken, Egg & Veggie Fried rice is his hands down favourite every time! I’m planning on blogging lots more baby and toddler dinners over the next few weeks….no doubt my Baba Jacques will be very happy!

  2. Amazing! Thanks so much for the mention.
    Glad you enjoyed it.
    As someone said to me on Facebook today, if every chef just had a simple traybake as their signature dish they’d all be a lot more relaxed…

    Thanks again, Alice Can’t Cook x

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!
