The last time Cindcy McCain baked something herself it was with her Easy Bake Oven.

But really, I could care less. But it is a dumb thing to get caught doing again.

Call me when we have photos of Cindy blowing the Keebler elves.

I'd buy it the first time. Not this one. And even if it were still an intern, you'd think they'd be bit more careful with the website after the first incident.

What I find much more humorous than the fact that these "family recipes" are plagiarized (not a big deal, but humorous) is that this multi-millionaire with 8 or 9 houses was peddling "Ahi Tuna with Napa Cabbage Slaw," "Farfalle Pasta with Turkey Sausage, Peas and Mushrooms," and "Passion Fruit Mousse" at the same time her husband was trying to label Obama as "elitist."

Hey, when times are bad people cling to things like their Coq au Vin and frisee salad with lemon poppy dressing.

Cindy McCain's Chewy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies:

ENRICHED FLOUR (WHEAT FLOUR, NIACIN, REDUCED IRON, THIAMIN MONONITRATE [VITAMIN B1], RIBOFLAVIN [VITAMIN B2], FOLIC ACID), OATMEAL, SEMISWEET CHOCOLATE CHIPS (SUGAR, CHOCOLATE, COCOA BUTTER, DEXTROSE, SOY LECITHIN-AN EMULSIFIER, MILK), PALM OIL AND/OR CANOLA OIL AND/OR PALM KERNEL OIL, HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP, RAISIN PASTE...

Okay, look I just heated up a plate of Chips Ahoy. Are you happy now?

I think she looks brittle, in several respects. I'd be afraid she'd shatter.

Who can resist the Cookie monster? OTOH I always though that his brother the Cokey monster ought to put in an appearance now and then - just to show where addiction like that can lead to.

My pumpkin pie cookie recipe (stolen from George Duran)

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
2 cups (12-ounce bag) milk chocolate chips, not semisweet
Nonstick cooking spray or parchment paper

Heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray cookie sheets with nonstick spray or line them with parchment paper.

Using a mixer, beat the butter until smooth. Beat in the white and brown sugars, a little at a time, until the mixture is light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs 1 at a time, then mix in the vanilla and pumpkin puree. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves. Slowly beat the flour mixture into the batter in thirds. Stir in the chips. Scoop the cookie dough by heaping tablespoons onto the prepared cookie sheets and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the cookies are browned around the edges. Remove the cookie sheets from the oven and let them rest for 2 minutes. Take the cookies off with a spatula and cool them on wire racks.

These things are awesome. Peanut butter chips or cranberries can be used in place of chocolate chips.

While I don't think this in itself is a big deal, I think that it shows how inept the McCain campaign is with internet. That could end up being a very big deal.

It's deja vu all over again! I seem to remember her pan-seared tuna recipe was lifted from Cooking with Cleavage.

The last time Cindcy McCain baked something herself it was with her Easy Bake Oven.

Lucille: You're going to put Lindsay in charge of the cooking? At least you'll lose weight.

Lindsay: You know, Mom, I think the only time you ever cooked for us, was the morning Rosa's mom died.

Buster: You gave us cereal in an ashtray.

Im here to defend her and apologise for her because her husband has an (R).

She's lucky he didnt have a (D) or I would be here to condemn and crucify her.

I blame Obama.

sabyJeBus: something tells me there are a finite number of good recipes for cookies, and that they may, in fact, be very similar to one another

That is very true. But the delta between these particular recipes looks like it's about 9 butterscotch chips. It does seem fishy.

pretty much. Flour, baking soda, salt, butter, eggs, vanilla, sugar, brown sugar, cookie-type-deciding item (like chocolate chips). I think I forgot an item or two, but that about covers the "cookie" aspect of the recipe.

Jument: This is what I love about America. Everyone is completely focused on the key issues and trying to elect the best possible candidate for the job.

Hear, hear. Everyone is questioning why she would plagiarize a cookie recipe, and not asking themselves how obsessing over the source of cook recipes really fit in to the whole scheme of running the country.

Well I was on the fence for who I was going to vote for. Thank god that this scandal was brought to my attention. If McCain's wife can stoop to this kind of low just imagine what he will be capable of.
