Again, with those serving suggestions, I got a strange feeling that this recipe mimics the one I wrote:
Your behavior is sneaky and puzzling. If I find one more of my recipes where my words seem to be echoed, I am going to write about it on my blog and publicly criticize what I think you are doing.
