Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is an often requested breakfast by our kids. It started years ago when I read the story of hoecakes in a Martha Stewart "presidential" issue. These were favorites of George and Abraham as they often had to eat out in the open with nothing much for cooking tools so a knife or hoe worked as the griddle held over the fire (although they never ate a meal with each other). When our kids' friends are over, they always look at me shocked when I ask if they'd like hoecakes for breakfast.
