Virtually delicious!

This month the Cooking Light Virtual Supper Club enjoyed a meal made with fresh herbs.  I decided to bring a dessert and went with Pound Cake with Lemon Basil Glaze.  The pound cake turned out wonderfully – it was light and had an awesome texture.  The glaze was definitely different but not unenjoyable!  If your looking for a tasty but different dessert – this is a definite way to go.  I took this to our memorial day family gathering.  About half of it was eaten that day (there were several desserts that day) – however, when I arrived at mom and dad’s the next day – it was all gone and I was very disappointed!  I am almost ashamed to say how much baked cupcakes, cakes, quick bread, pie and ice cream was consumed in the last 3 days!  Egads!  Good thing at least one of the recipes was from Cooking Light eh? 

 The rest of our virtual meal consisted of:

Basil Parmesan Dip and Garlic Herb Dip – Jamie of Mom’s Cooking Club
Chicken Stuffed with Herbs – Sandi of Whistlestop Cafe
Olive and Asiago Rolls – Val of More than Burnt Toast
Risotto with Fresh Mozzarella, Grape Tomatoes and Basil – Pasty of Family, Friends and Food
Pound Cake with Lemon-Basil Glaze – Shelby of The Life & Loves of Grumpy’s Honeybunch

Thanks to all of my virtual friends for joining in!  Come join us next month for our virtual Barbecue!

    I am captivated by the sound of lemon basil glaze…I really want to start adding herbs into my baked goods. This looks fabulous!

    A perfect slice of pound cake to end a meal. Yes, herbs with a dessert does sound different but thanks for introducing it to everyone.

    Oh, this sounds fabulous! I love using fresh herbs with sweets. Have an old recipe for a rosemary pound cake where the herb is steeped in milk before adding to the batter. A quite unique preparation. Thanks for sharing this one!
