“Explanation of recipe title and directions: Once upon a time, this site was called Recipezaar. It was a mystical, magical place, with addictive forums. The idea for this recipe was born in those forums. Melly Mel asked if there was a withdrawal patch for Recipezaar when she was going to be away for a while. I rushed in to provide this home remedy - but remember, this is not for long term use. You must return to Recipezaar as soon as your circumstances permit!”
