The story behind this recipe: A disgruntled woman faxed a copy of this recipe to every E-Mail address she had throughout the U.S. when she unwittingly was charged ( $250.00 ) by Neiman- Marcus for this recipe. She thought she was being charged ( $2.50 ). When the manager refused to credit her account, she got her revenge by sending this out to everyone for free. Frankie’s niece ( her sister Bobbe’s daughter ) named Dale, was married to the President of Neiman – Marcus. They are sure he was notified and received copy of this.
