While we love to share our own gorgeous recipes, today we thought we'd highlight some other great food blogs from around the world to help you discover new home cooks doing amazing stuff.

And what better time to do that than at Easter? A time when families come together for a special meal with a succulent roast.

Check out these awesome recipes and prepare to drool while you flick through them. Don't mind us, we're just off to the butchers to get a huge piece of meat to get one of these recipes going...

1. Roasted Chicken Leg Quarters

The guys over at Eatwell have this amazing looking spicy chicken leg roast, it's a nice cheap alternative to a larger roast and super easy to make. Like all their recipes, it looks so good you could lick it off the screen.

9. One-Pot Slow-Roast Lamb Shanks with Beans

You can't help but love this recipe for a number of reasons – it's all cooked in one pot, it looks unreal and the fact that lamb shanks are usually a cheaper cut of meat. Gorgeous.
