Best of the Foodie Blogs: Ten at Ten (53)


favourite foodies badge

The sun is shining, the snow has gone (well, it has here!) and it’s that happy time of the week when we bring you some of our favourite blog posts from the UK food blogging community. Over the past year, I have loved writing this post as it has led me to discover many new and wonderful blogs. The range of talent out there really is amazing.

So, without any more gushing, we’ll start with some baking. More precisely some post-exam baking from A Student’s Baking Journey. Just take a look at these baguettes and croissants – very impressive!

If you just read one blog post this week then may I suggest it is Back to Front Vintage Rice with Pomegranate from Eggs on the Roof. This post tells a lovely story, is so beautifully written and, as always, the photos are stunning.

I absolutely love the little parmesan bowls in the mushroom risotto with chilli truffle scallops dish from Franglais Kitchen. It’s definitely something I’m going to try – in fact, the whole dish looks right up my street.

Speaking of supper, I spotted another quick and easy dish that I think I shall try cooking with the children. Not only does this Peashoot, Bacon and Ricotta Penne from Anne’s Kitchen looks delicious, but it is fairly frugal too. Perfect for the month that seems to drag on for ever!

Have you ever seen someone choke? Would you know what to do? My youngest daughter had a tendency to choke a lot when she was younger and it’s a pretty scary situation to be in. Which is why I feel for Helen from BakingAitch, who makes a very good case for why we should all do a first aid course. Hope your hubby is ok now Helen!

Now is the time of year when the Seville oranges are in season and what better to do with them than make some delicious marmalade? If you’re looking for a quick and easy marmalade recipe, then take a look over at Katie Loves Cooking. I might make some myself this week!

I’ve not heard of Gevulde Speculaas before, but having seen them on Under the Blue Gum tree, I know that I must try them…. and soon! These little Dutch delicacies look like the bees knees and you can’t go wrong with anything that is almond based in my book.

There’s a spot more baking for you in this week’s round up too. Firstly a lovely looking chocolate and beetroot cake from Kitchen Delights. I made a cake like this last year and it was scrummy! And some gorgeous-looking blackberry and almond squares from NR11: English Kitchen Baking – there we are with the almonds again. Just can’t beat them!

And finally this week, I leave you with a post that made me giggle. We’ve all had those moments in the kitchen when things don’t quite go to plan. Alice from Alice Can’t Cook shares her little mishap when she tried to make Blancmange.

So, that’s all for this week – and probably the last Ten at Ten from me *sniff*. I’ll still be around and reading all your lovely posts though…

  1. I see you have referred to quick and easy marmalade on the Blog. I just wanted to say that there are some fantastic and really accessible other recipes on that excellent Blog! In fact it’s got a rather unique ‘flavour’ to it all, the way its all written. I really appreciate it.

    I hope you will look at it and notice all the other interesting recipes that are there and which arrive so frequently. It’s just lovely!

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!
