Sarah Rutledge emphasized that The Carolina Housewife contained recipes that had been gathered from the community, tested in their own kitchens, and—a topic that still resonates today—appropriate for people of limited incomes. Other delicious recipes include Hominy Bread, Rice Griddles, Baked Shrimps in Tomatoes, Peach Sherbet, and Lemon Drops, all combining to make The Carolina Housewife “a treasure trove for social historians studying South Carolina culture and lifestyles,” according to South Carolina Historical Magazine. This edition of The Carolina Housewife was reproduced by permission from the volume in the collection of the American Antiquarian Society, Worcester, Massachusetts. Founded in 1812 by Isaiah Thomas, a Revolutionary War patriot and successful printer and publisher, the society is a research library documenting the lives of Americans from the colonial era through 1876. The society collects, preserves, and makes available as complete a record as possible of the printed materials from the early American experience. The cookbook collection comprises approximately 1,100 volumes.

Writing for domestic servants in a conversational, accessible way, eighteenth-century housewife Hannah Glasse disapproved of French terminology and fussiness, instead favouring simple dishes that are still cooked today - a preference that has earned her the reputation of 'the first Domestic Goddess'.
With recipes for rice pudding, beef rump, barbecued pork, trifle and even the first recipe in Britain for 'Curry the Indian way', as well as tips for choosing your ingredients and cures for the bite of a mad dog, this is an elegant and economical collection of recipes and housekeeping tips to save any homemaker 'a great deal of trouble'.
It started the alphabetical listing with Aberdeen Crulla and Alamode Beef and ended with Yeast, Potato and Zests. Besides just the alphabetical section of the book, the Cook’s Own Book, and Housekeeper’s Register also contains articles about techniques of cooking, preparing soups and broths, curing meats, managing families, utensils, and diet, and a table of weights and measurements. The book was basically a compendium of recipes compiled from diverse British and American sources, and although many of the recipes and information are borrowed (a common practice of the time), author Mrs. N.K.M. Lee added many of her own original recipes to the collection making this culinary tome a true historical treasury.
