Watermelons - Italy 1810 and Cincinnati
When the British traveler Mrs. Trollope first tasted water-melon she "thought it very vile stuff." She also felt the men, women and children who were sitting on the streets of 1830 Cincinnati, spitting the seeds "to the great annoyance of all within reach" and the juice pouring out of their mouths... looked "very unpleasant." The delightful image is from Italy, 1810.

Mrs. Goodfellow - Lemon Pudding before the Meringue
Mrs. Goodfellow (1767-1851) made a lemon pudding (pie) at her cooking school and shop in early Phila. (more HERE). I've not found any proof that she created the first lemon meringue pie, as some claim - unlikely since she used whole eggs and first mention (no source) was in a 1987 book. Her lemon pudding was popular and copied into several local authors' cook books. More details and three recipes are below.

Mrs. Goodfellow - raves from Miss Leslie and others
lemon pies, Spanish buns and cocoanut pies were locally renowned. Using her class notes, Eliza Leslie, a student, wrote the first of her many popular cook books, passing on Mrs. Goodfellow's recipes and ideas to future generations of cooks.
