Jessica Seinfeld: What's the Deal with Stealing Recipes?

by at . Comments

Jessica Seinfeld is the proud author behind "Deceptively Delicious," a cook book about hiding healthy ingredients in foods children will eat; it's the top-selling book in the country right now.

But is it also the most immoral?

Jerry Seinfeld and Wife

Rumors are circulating that Jerry Seinfeld's wife stole the content for this tome the same way Minka Kelly steals glances from every man in her vicinity.

See, chef and baby-products mogul Missy Chase Lapine came out in April with a book, "The Sneaky Chef: Simple Strategies for Hiding Healthy Foods in Kids' Favorite Meals."

Sounds similar, doesn't it? Now consider this fact:

Lapine baked spinach brownies with Al Roker on the "Today" show a few months ago; Seinfeld shared her spinach brownies with Oprah on her talk show last week.

Need more evidence that Jessica may be following in the dishonest footsteps of George Costanza?

She writes about having an epiphany that, "While I was cooking dinner, pureeing butternut squash for the baby and making mac and cheese for the rest of us, I had the crazy idea of stirring a little of the puree into the macaroni. ... The colors matched -you couldn't really see the squash in there -and the texture was perfect."

But in his book, Lapine opines: "If you want to hide something in macaroni and cheese, you have to match the color of the dish. You could easily introduce white bean puree in the mac and cheese."

We're not gonna come right out and accuse Mrs. Jerry Seinfeld of knowingly ganking recipes and content. But, to borrow one of many classic Seinfeld quotes, we are gonna tell her the stealing store called...

... and they're running out of her!
