Best of the Foodie Blogs: Ten at Ten (45)


It’s Wednesday again and I have more great blog posts for you in this week’s Ten at Ten round up. One great thing about the dark nights and chilly weather is curling up with a cuppa and reading blogs, so, yet again, I had so many fabulous posts to choose from. Here are ten that I think you should head off and read. Enjoy!

Firstly this week, we have a blog post from Slightly Peckish that is packed full of colourful photos to brighten up these dull days. It takes you on a wander through the spice markets of Istanbul and makes you wish you could jet off there immediately!

Sticking with the spice theme, I was pleased to discover this recipe for Autumn spiced pancakes from A Bit of This & A Bit of That. Pancakes for breakfast on a Saturday are somewhat of a tradition in our house now, so I’m looking forward to trying these out.

What could be more comforting on a chilly day than a baked potato with beans? James Ramsden has given this comfort food a delicious twist by adding some chorizo and chipotle paste.

I do love a good chocolate cake so this decadent chocolate brownie celebration cake from Kerry Cooks looks like the perfect recipe for me. The addition of fruit is just right to cut through that rich chocolate – I can almost taste it!

The domed cake top – fine when you’re just baking a cake for yourself, annoying when you want to decorate it. If you want to bake a cake with a flat top then it is worth trying out some of these top tips from Mostly Cake. Let us know how you get on.

Melting moments always remind me of my childhood – anyone else like to twist them apart and eat the middle first? No? Just me? These pretty little treats from My Chocolate Soul look like the perfect accompaniment to a mid-morning cuppa.

What do you cook when you are dashing in and only have a short time in which to prepare a tasty meal before your favourite tv show starts? Maybe this cod wrapped in streaky bacon from Preheat the oven is the answer. Simple, quick and delicious.

The photos of the views and food in this post by Samphire and Salsify about dining at The Cube are stunning. It sounds like a wonderful experience – my mouth is watering just reading about it!

Have you ever tries curing salmon? I haven’t but after reading this post on Sam Cooks Food and seeing the beautiful colour of the salmon, I’m going to have a go. The recipe for salmon three ways with horseradish cream, pickled radishes and crispy skin sounds absolutely amazing!

I’ve eaten quince jelly several times but I’ve never tried cooking with them myself. These baked spiced quinces from Charlotte’s Kitchen Diary look really simple to prepare and make a delicious, and healthy, pud.

And there you have it for this week. Join us again next Wednesday for more delicious blog posts!

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!
