What Ellen’s Lovin
Spring is here which means I get to spend time in my garden planting vegetables, annual flowers and taking care of perennial gardens. In the heart of Manitoba, affectionately known as the Wheat City, Brandon, there is a local seed company called McKenzie Seeds. McKenzie Seeds is where I received my own micro green grow kit. I really enjoy all different types of greens, either in salads or a quickly blanched and then sautéed in canola oil. Now to wait for them to grow!

Milk frother + Tea Biscuits
I love my Nespresso milk frother. I am not a coffee person, but a crazy turn of events last spring led to the purchase that has changed my life. I now go to bed dreaming about waking up to a lovely coffee made with beautiful warm-frothed milk. Add a little Madagascar bourbon vanilla bean paste and good morning sunshine! Not a coffee drinker? What about a chai latte with a little spiced rum to make your lazy Sunday even lazier. And on that hot summer day, a creamy, thick, meringue-like topped iced hazelnut cappuccino is simply just wonderful.
I do have to include this recipe for rhubarb tea biscuits, as it is that time of year and they are a lovely addition to your May breakfast routine. Enjoy.

Slow at-home weekend brunch
I love a slow weekend morning with a delicious cup of coffee, sitting in the warm sunshine, watching the birds and looking for new buds of green as my perennial and bulb garden explode with growth. My favourite way to transition from a slow morning is making a batch of waffles for our home to enjoy. My secret to the fluffiest waffle – separate your eggs, whip the whites to a firm peak then set aside. Add the yolks at the point your recipe calls for eggs. Gently fold the egg whites into the batter at the very end, then, iron on! What’s your favourite at-home brunch food?
