Ten at Ten: Inject A Little Summer Sunshine


Summer recipes for any weather

Each Friday at 10am we invite a Foodies100 member to share their favourite ten posts with us. If you’d like to share some of your favourite reads then get in touch with our editor Alison at foodies100@fleaenterprises.com. You’ll get a link back to your own site and other social platforms, as well as the opportunity to introduce yourself to a bunch of new readers.

This week, Becky from Munchies and Munchkins has chosen her favourite recipes that will inject some summer sun into your life, even if it’s been as wet as this week has been for most of us! Becky has two daughters (Izzy aged 2.5yrs and Chloe aged 6 months) and she writes about food, festivals and her family. “I really love to cook and eat and talk about..write about…and take photos of food,” she says. “I mostly cook simple family food although I do like the fancy stuff too and I really enjoy sharing my recipes with others via the blog.”

I’d like to share with you some blog posts that I’ve enjoyed over the last month or so which spread a bit of sunshine. I can imagine eating all of these recipes in the balmy evenings or warm afternoons of long summer days. Let’s hope we get some more sunshine soon!
  • The Pie Patch is still a fairly new blog compared to some but every recipe post is guaranteed to make me hungry. Lucy makes really good, comforting family meals and I love the honest way in which she writes. This is her recipe for Mediterranean sausage and tomato tray bake.
  • Next up are some baked sweet potato fries from A Mummy Too  I’ve developed a bit of a thing for sweet potato fries and as I’m currently trying to lose some baby weight I think the baked option is definitely on my to make list.
  • Onto something sweet from The Crazy Kitchen – a barbecued fruit sundae. I love anything barbecued and fruit is on exception. I think my toddler would love this too.
  • I really liked these bean and sweetcorn burgers from Gourmet Mum and I think Izzy would love to help me make them. We do try to have at least one meat free day each week so this is ideal.
  • I can imagine eating this BCKT sandwich from Eats Like A Girl in my garden on a warm day drinking a glass of Pimms while watching the children play. I heart crispy kale.
  • Bearing in mind that breakfast is the most important meal of the day I want to try this healthy French toast from Hungry Healthy Happy.
  • And still with breakfast in mind and knowing that strawberries are at their very best right now, I could try this one punnet strawberry jam from Fab Food 4 All
  • I’m planning on going foraging this week for wild garlic so the next two recipes are my inspiration with tear and share wild garlic pesto bread from Bangers and Mash  and wild garlic and cashew dip from Keeper of the Kitchen.
  • Finally we have to finish with a dessert and this passion fruit and white choc profiterole recipe from Casa Costello looks sublime. My other half is mad for profiteroles and this is a little bit different.
Massive thank you to Becky for these summery treats. Don’t know about you, but we’re going to have a summer cook-up this weekend, no matter what the weather! Don’t forget to follow Becky on Twitter and Facebook.

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 bloggers@fleaenterprises.com with any questions or comments.

Thank you!

The Flea Network Team

Got it!
