Oh, kids!! Cindy Lou is at it again! Remember when she claimed Rachael Ray’s recipe as her own? Well, it seems that they don’t make a pill to cure stealing. Well, kids, I guess that’s the way the mccookie crumbles.
From the New York Daily News:
Cindy McCain’s been caught with her hand in the cookie jar again.
McCain’s recipe for oatmeal-butterscotch cookies, published on the Family Circle Web site earlier in the month, appears to be an almost exact replica of a Hershey’s recipe.
Here’s the story, kids–on Captain Underpant’s website, there was a section called Cindy’s Recipes. Supposedly, they were old family recipes that Cindy whipped up often in each one of her 8 homes. I’ll let Wonkette tell you the problem:
A New York attorney was searching Google for some recipe by famous Food Network chef Giada DeLaurentis — this is what attorneys call “billable hours” — when she found those same exact recipes on John McCain’s website, ridiculously labeled as “Cindy’s Recipes.”
The stolen recipes (“Ahi Tuna with Napa Cabbage,” “Passion Fruit Mousse,” etc.) include word-for-word rip-offs of at least three Food Network recipes, along with another plagiarized from teevee cooking lady Rachel Ray.
