Everything about this time of year seems positive...The weather is getting better, the days longer and everybody seems to be in a great mood.
One of the big changes at this time of year is how we eat. Gone are the winter stews, soups and big dinners and in come the salads, springtime vegetables and outdoor eating (if we're lucky!).
This change in seasons has inspired us to look at some delicious, light recipes for dinner tonight. Take your pick...
1. Super Easy Smoked Salmon and Ricotta Quiche
This gorgeous quiche is really easy to make and tastes delicious.
If you don't like smoked salmon then you could throw in some bacon instead. This only involves a few ingredients, but looks seriously impressive.
