    Hot weather screams for slushies. But Bellini Slushies? Wow! You can jazz these up with a shot of Grand Marnier for a double header. But honestly, the passion fruit has so much intense flavour, it’s mouth puckering. You will scream for more.

    In high-speed blender, place pitted and peeled peaches. Cut passion fruits in half and scoop pulp into sieve. Scrape pulp through sieve into blender bowl using spatula, extracting as much juice as possible. Cut vanilla bean in half, lengthwise, and with the sharp point of knife, scrape seeds from bean and add to blender. Whirl at high speed, scraping down sides of bowl occasionally, until mixture is fully blended and pureu0301ed.


    Divide mixture among individual Mason jars large enough to fill them half full. Top with lids but do not twist shut. Place in freezer and freeze. Once frozen, twist caps tight.


    Remove from freezer and thaw jars just until fruit is slushy. Uncap lids and pour sparkling wine or sparkling water into jars to almost full. Stir each and serve with spoons.

    An Elegant Afternoon Tea

    Whether you call her Mom, Mother, Momma, or Mum, an afternoon tea is the perfect way to celebrate that special person in your life. It can not only be a fun and elegant occasion but also offer a wonderfully relaxed celebration. Afternoon tea has come to be a sort of ritual that allows you to slow down and take your time. The pace is gentle and calm, allowing time for everyone to unwind. Because it’s also something we don’t all do every day, it can help spark conversation and provide a special sense of occasion. The host can prepare food in advance, and with plenty of options both savoury and sweet, it can easily provide something that all will enjoy. And because offerings are all beautifully laid out and displayed, there’s no getting up and down from the table, which leaves everyone free for the most important reason for gathering—spending time with Mom. With afternoon tea, there’s plenty of opportunity to visit and spend time together and enjoy delicious food; these six recipes will help you prepare an afternoon tea to nourish body and soul and to celebrate Mom in style.
