I have a pretty good summer entertaining menu. Ask anyone who's eaten it over the years...you don't have to take my word for it. Hummus, rosemary cashews, chicken skewers, lemon rice, pitas, vegetable salad. They go together beautifully.
And dessert is always a hit. No one needs to know it's super easy. I found the recipe for Lemon Sour Cream Pound Cake in an old issue of Southern Living magazine. It's so easy, in fact, that I haven't changed a thing. Except that I always double the lemon glaze recipe and garnish the cake with a lot of sliced strawberries. Oh, and don't skip the grease & flour step at the beginning. Or, just buy the non-stick spray for baking that already has flour in it.
