This week I am delighted to welcome Alex from Gingey Bites as our guest Ten at Ten editor. I’ve really enjoyed reading through her selections and I’m sure you will too, so grab yourself a cuppa and dive in…
Now that the snow is finally melting and it’s a tiny bit warmer outside, it seems my fellow food bloggers’ spirits have lifted. Gone are the casseroles and one pots which seemed to have dominated recently and here are the soups, and light, healthy fish recipes. It might be a bit early yet but there’s a definite spring note in the air on this week’s UK food blog posts.
Belleau Kitchen has long been one of my favourite food blogs and this minestrone soup recipe really caught my eye. With quirky, humorous words, Dom’s posts are fun to read and easy to follow. This recipe is really simple to follow and I’m sure the results were just as delicious as they looked!
I fell in love with this 7 layer rainbow cake from ‘look who’s cooking too’. It’s just so pretty and a perfect antidote to the miserable winter greyness.
It’s not all about food as Eat the Right Stuff proves with this refreshing cocktail. It’s got enough alcohol in it to get the party started, running and done!
Another post with an orange theme – this Seville Orange Posset recipe on Delicious Delicious Delicious looks so tasty and uses ingredients perfectly in season. I’ll definitely be trying it next weekend!
Cook Sister’s crab and chilli pasta has all the colours of summer in it and her ramblings accompanying the recipe are really entertaining, I think our minds work in the same way!
This parmesan crusted aubergine with goats’ cheese, cranberries and caramelised onions from A Mummy Too balances classic Italian flavours with a fruity twist. This looks good in black and white but I bet it would look even better in colour.
Maybe not quite so reminiscent of spring as some of my other picks for this ten at ten round up but yummy all the same, Keep Learning, Keep Smiling’s recipe for Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Rocky Road looks really comforting and moreish. Although I’m not a mummy myself, I can imagine this is a good one to make with the kids!
Now for something a bit different. A blog post dedicated to the caramelized onion – who’d have thought there was so much to learn and so many things to put it with. I found this post from the Greedy Gourmet really interesting and it’s given me food for thought.
Back to my spring theme now at Jenny Eatwells Rhubarb Ginger with some fun looking pancakes. Part of a ‘pimp your pancake’ challenge, this post just made me smile!
I’d like to finish today with one of the first food blogs I ever read – Johnny’s Kitchen. This week’s post features foie gras, smoked salmon and caviar in a divine, indulgent and downright luxurious list of drinks party canapés.
Thanks Alex for a wonderful selection of blog posts. As well as checking out her blog, you can also find Alex on twitter. Go and say hello!
