Best of the Foodie Blogs: Ten at Ten (25)


This week we thought we’d ask the Foodies100 twitter followers and facebook fans to suggest their favourite foodie posts from the UK food blogging community from the past week. We had a fabulous response and have included as many as we can. So here is this week’s crowd-sourced Ten at Ten…

First up, Penny from Penelope’s Pantry suggested we take a look at her carbonara recipe. It’s perhaps not the most ‘traditional’ carbonara recipe but it’s how she likes it and we think it sounds yummy! She has also blogged her Dad’s recipe and urges you, if you try it, to make it with love.

Next, @stressymummy tweeted a link to Cakes Photos Life where we were met with the most amazing selection of delicious-looking cakes! There’s definitely something there for everyone, but we’re itching to try the chocolate honeycomb squares.

Can you imagine a life without cheese, that is the question being posed on Cooking Around The World? We love cheese so we say no! Thanks to @BlueKitchenBake for pointing us towards this cheesy post.

If you like cheese, then you’ll be pleased to see that it is included in this next recipe too! Pasta Shells Stuffed with Mushrooms and Squash is a lovely vegetarian supper dish from We Don’t Eat Anything With A Face and is the perfect way to use up those mushrooms that end up lurking in the back of the fridge!

Time for something sweet and what better than these cookie slabs from The Mini Mes and Me? Not only do they look scrummy, but they are simple to make and, apparently, are delicious served warm with ice cream. We’re sold!

Have you tired cake pops before? They’re not yet as popular as the cupcake and a bit fiddly to make, but still a whole heap of fun! These coffee pops from mondomulia are very pretty and perfect for this time of year, all decked out in the Wimbledon colours.

It’s great when you come across a recipe that really inspires you to get into the kitchen and start baking, and @MixingBowlMagic told us via twitter that this recipe from Handmade by Fleur did just that. These strawberry and cream eclairs covered in white chocolate look like the perfect summertime treat – just make sure you save us some if you make them!

So, Kedgeree – good for breakfast or best left until supper time? Either way, we’re loving this Kedgeree recipe from Domestic Goddesque, especially as you can put it all in a big pot and bake it in the oven. So simple!

Hands up who remembers arctic roll? We certainly do and now we can have a go at recreating it with this great recipe from Fun-as-a-gran. There are also instructions for making cute little hedgehog cakes – we love them!

It’s time to say goodbye for another week, so we will leave you with some farewell cupcakes from This Is Life. Moving on is always a tricky time but I’m sure Abby’s nursery teachers were delighted with these pretty lemonade cupcakes.

Thank you all for pitching in and sharing your favourite blog posts with us. See you next week with another round up.

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!
