Best of the Foodie Blogs: Ten at Ten (40)


Wow, I can’t believe this is our 40th Ten at Ten post – time certainly flies when you’re having fun! We’ve discovered some amazing blogs through this weekly round up and we hope you have too. Once again, we have a fab selection of blogs for you to check out in this week’s best of the foodie blogs, so grab yourself a cuppa and a slice of cake and dive in…

First up this week we have a delicious looking spiced rhubarb foolish from Jenny Eatwell’s Rhubarb & Ginger. This is a lovely way to use up that last crop of rhubarb and Jenny has even tried to make it a slightly healthier recipe – perfect!

We love this idea for making chocolate balloon bowls from Foodie Laura! I bet it is incredibly messy but lots of fun – perhaps one to try with the children over half term.

Anyone for tea with Diana Henry? Well, we can’t actually promise that, but we can promise some amazing photos from Eggs on the Roof, who did go for tea with Diana Henry. What an amazing spread!

This next cake is definitely not on the list for those of us watching our weight, but I certainly couldn’t resist a slice of this Snickers Bundt Cake from Dolly Bakes! I just hope she has some left to send round for me to have with my coffee…

I do love a good vintage cookbook and can’t resist picking them up at car boot sales and charity shops. Just take a look at these vintage gems from At Home with Mrs M, who seems to share my cookbook obsession! I’m guessing we’re not the only ones – what are your favourite cookery books from yesteryear?

This mushroom and smoked garlic quiche that I found on Little Red Courgette looks like the perfect supper dish for this time of year. I also love the idea of taking a chunk to work in a lunch box – makes a welcome change from soggy sandwiches!

Next we have a couple of recipes that feature onions – a good staple ingredient in our house. Rachel baked a gorgeous rosemary and onion focaccia – I bet it’s delicious served with a warming bowl of soup. Louise from the lone gourmet has made some fabulous baked onions – a wonderful and slightly different side dish that I will definitely be trying soon.

I’m the first to admit that my food photography could do with a little (ok, a lot) of work so I was pleased to discover this post on Yummy Choo Eats all about the food photography workshop she attended. Head on over to her blog to find out some great tips.

Last, but not least, we have a yummy smartie cookie recipe from What Would Nigella Do? I’m going to bookmark this recipe to try with the children during half term – they’ll love these spotty cookies!

That’s our ten posts for this week. Any volunteers to write a round up for next week? We’d love to hear from you.

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!
