In the Kitchen Tonight…Spoonbread

Spoonbread is so simple to make and I love simple recipes that are not complex.  As I always like to point out: I am not a Martha Stewart type (no offense to the “Martha’s” out there!) Here is a wonderful recipe from Mount Vernon and its so neat to think that maybe Martha Washington used this same simple recipe to make this special treat for George.  The history of Spoonbread goes all the way back to the Native Americans and it was a favorite of President James Monroe’s.  The first recipe in print was published in 1847 in a fabulous cookbook authored by Sarah Rutledge titled: The Carolina Housewife.

Here is what we came up with in the kitchen tonight. It was simple. Fun. Yummy!
