Best of the Foodie Blogs: Ten at Ten (29)


This week we are delighted to welcome Sarah from What Would Nigella Do? as our guest Ten at Ten editor. She has been tweeting to get some inspiration and has scoured the UK food blogging community for interesting blog posts over the past week. So, here’s what she came up with for this week’s round up…

It’s the start of the school holidays and where I live the sun seems to have put his hat on. Hurrah! Over the weekend the sky was blue and the aroma of long-awaited barbecues filled the air. I hope they were reading the advice given in Dad’s Cooking Tonight about how to prepare for the perfect BBQ!

I put a shout-out on Twitter as I really wanted to showcase some up and coming blogs as well as a few established ones. The response was great and on the journey I found some brilliant new blogs to follow.

I’ll start with cake. Well, why not eh? And what better place to find it than at Totally Caked Out where a Summery White Choc Cake is the order of the day! Sponge, chocolate, cream and strawberries. What’s not to like? And I bet it’s a cracker to impress the mother-in-law.

Talking of cake – I have been trying out my first Herman Friendship Cake and wish I had found the wisdom of For Bella and Will earlier as there is literally everything you need to know about our little German friend!

What do you do when you’ve run out of food and have to rely on the store cupboard staples? Amateur Food Ramblings shows us that you can make some fabulous dishes with little effort! I am in awe and I love her chatty, personal style of blogging recipes. You really feel the passion and love of food behind the blog.

Gingey Bites had my mouth watering with her Lamb Gushtaba recipe – I particularly liked the presentation on a large, over-sized cup!  Maybe some of the Vegetarian Experience’s Mango Chutney would go well on the side?

Also causing drooling in my household was Fab Food 4 All’s Quick Nicoise Style Salad.  Such a great dish for this warm weather and the creamy garlicy dressing looks delicious.

Holly Bell from Recipes from a Normal Mum never fails to impress me with her wonderful baking skills. This clementine cake looks divine! Holly said she baked it to entice the sunshine out and it looks like it worked!

Are you a fan of coronation chicken? I found this coronation chicken recipe on Aga Girls and agree that some can be bland and tasteless. However, this one looks simple to make and I bet it tastes fabulous.

Finally, I think it is fitting to finish off with some ice cream! A Little Bit of Heaven on a Plate has been reviewing The Icecreamists and made the most delicious-looking Jamaica ginger cake ice cream. Definitely one to try!

That’s all from me!  May the sun shine and the cooking continue!

A huge thanks to Sarah for her selections this week. If you’d like to write a Ten at Ten or guest post for us, do get in touch.

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!
