Best of the Foodie Blogs: Ten at Ten (36)


The seasons are changing and I love the new and exciting dishes that Autumn brings with it. The colours of the changing leaves are also reflected in the dazzling dishes and this week’s round up is full of colourful fruit and vegetables. The first few posts that I want to highlight this week are brought to you by the letter T and the colour red. Can you guess what it is?

Yes, the good old tomato! Over on Eating Ideas there is a top tip for storing your tomatoes, whilst The Healthy Epicurean tells us of the health benefits of tomatoes. Finally, Vanilla Clouds and Lemon Drops has a delicious tomato and mozarella tart, which looks so pretty! Plenty of ideas here for using up all those tomatoes.

Another colourful dish is this Pollo a la montanesa from them apples. It is a simple one pot dish that is packed full of flavour and with the Spanish influence, gives a gentle nod to the end of the summer holidays.

I love going on long walks at this time of year and searching the hedgerows for blackberries – there’s something wonderful about heading home with bags full of fruit and transforming them into something yummy. So, I’m really looking forward to trying out these Blackberry Cupcakes from Recipe Junkie – so colourful!

Staying with cakes, how lovely are these little victoria sponge cupcakes from The Baking Explorer? I’ve never thought of splitting cupcakes like this and making mini sponges but they look fabulous. Perfect with a cuppa in the afternoon and you get a whole victoria sponge to yourself. What more could you ask for?

There are even more cupcakes and lots of top tips in this post from Fleur all about the Cake and Bake Show Preview Evening at the Peggy Porschen Academy. Look how gorgeous those little roses are on top of those cupcakes, and the chocolate truffles… I hope Fleur saved us some…

After all those cakes, you’ll probably need a drink. How about some Innis & Gunn fruit beer? Alwynne from Gwiltypleasures, a who is a self-confessed non-lover of fruit beers, tests out the raspberry and strawberry versions. Check out her post to see what she thought.

I am in awe of people who can cook the perfect pork belly – mine never turns out looking as delicious as everyone else’s. Just look at this Slow-Roasted Pork Belly with Apple Gravy from Gloriously Good Food – my children would go mad for that crackling!

Finishing off this week’s Ten at Ten we have a lovely lemongrass chicken with noodles from Scrummy Suppers and Quirky Cakes. A perfect speedy supper dish for chilly nights.

That’s all for this week. We’d love to hear which blogs you love reading so do get in touch if you’d like to write us a Ten at Ten 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!
