    This is an easy, elegant salmon dish with a yoghurt-dill sauce. It doesn't get much easier. I like it best on summer evenings. Fresh steamed asparagus or green beans go well with this.

    Treat yourself to a classic eggs Benedict for late breakfast or brunch. Poached eggs served on top of buttered toast with ham and homemade hollandaise sauce. You can change it up by using bacon, smoked salmon or spinach instead of ham.
