Lemon Lush Dessert Recipe

What did you have for Easter dessert? The Herb family enjoyed a Butterscotch Pie made by Sister Spice, as well as Nana Herb’s favorite dessert of all time – Lemon Lush!

Nana Herb loves allll things lemon. And sugar. I think I get my sweet tooth from her! But any kind of lemon dessert is just out-of-this-world for her. This seemed like an Easter-y thing to make. It is yellow, after all (isn’t that like an Easter color?!) It is also delicious.

  1. Um, yeah. Could you please publish a recipe next week that uses mushrooms? I hate mushrooms, and will not be tempted in the least to make it. This, however, is uber-tempting. I don’t appreciate this, Mrs. Herb! I am drooling, looking at this recipe. Thanks to sister spice, too for that Butterscotch recipe from last week.

    • Mrs. Herb on said:

      Haha, sorry Mrs. 1500! Although now that you mention it, I’m sure we have some mushroom posts on the way! It’s a shame you don’t like them 🙂

  2. Ohhhh…my, my, my….This looks. Well, I’m speachless, actually?! Can I come over? 😉 Maybe I’ll stray from my vegan diet just this once. 😉
