What Ellen’s Lovin
Learning about science from Bob MacDonald on Quirks and Quarks. The radio or podcast program covers the quirks of the expanding universe to the quarks within a single atom and everything in between. I love listening it with my kids and one of my favorite parts of the show is the questions from the listeners. One question recently was asked “Do trees radiate heat?”

What Jenn’s Lovin
If I’m going to host a large family meal it’s usually brunch. It can be as simple or elaborate as you want and I always serve it buffet style so that everyone can load their plate with the items they love. With so many options, what is your go-to must have brunch menu item?

For me, it’s a great waffle and my secret tip is to separate your eggs! Beat the egg whites in their own bowl and fold them into the batter at the end to make your waffles extra fluffy! Don’t waste the yolks – just toss them in with the other wet ingredients as you make the batter.
What Lynn’s Lovin’
Spring vegetables make me very happy
I love the juicy, peppery crunch of garden radishes, the fragrant touch that a sprinkling of spring onions add to any dish, fiddleheads – the rare edible shoots of the ostrich fern, and my favorite – the young tender shoots of asparagus drizzled with a homemade herb vinaigrette.
Homemade vinaigrettes are really easy and simple to make. Once you have made your own you will be saying bye bye to those bottled ones for good!
