They sound like great brownies but I can't see myself opening 60 caramels to make brownies.

i'm surprised that anyone has a problem with this being an original recipe since it begins with a box of cake mix.

that sort of kills the original recipe thing, no?

I don't know. I mean would you have a problem with a soup made using a can of tomatoes and peppers? Is it not the same thing?

no, it's not. a canned ingredient is a single ingredient, plus maybe some salt and other stuff that's there from processing.

a box mix is a nearly completed thing. you're just adding stuff to make them more brownie-like. the main part of this recipe was created by people in hair nets and smocks over giant tubs if ingredients.

please don't start the "creating the universe" arguement about original recipes. maybe this should be called pw's knock yourself naked from a box mix brownies.

Where did Linguini go? She never came back to defend her position. I have the feeling she is a secret agent of "Marlbor Woman"

She skulks through the back alleys of bakeries spraying graffiti against

"Pioneer Woman"

All said in jest!

I don't see any place where Pioneer Woman claimed or implied it was her original recipe. That and as you stated about the package mix makes any controversy ridiculous.

It seems sort of obvious, and I'm sure that was your point. CD gets pretty good search engine coverage. It seems likely that anybody who googles PW every day is going to get any related topics on CD.

I have googled the subject of a CD topic and found that Google had the topic the very same day!!! My hat's off to the excellent SEO work the admins have done. (That's "search engine optimization," what you do to a website to make sure the search engines can find stuff on your site and direct visitors your way.)

I wouldn't be surprised if MW didn't send Linguine here to try and stir up trouble. Her advertisers must be leaving her and she is not making the money she thought she would with her site. And every time someone goes to Google her, and then visit, she has to pay for the reference. Google is not free for those registered with them. That's how Google makes their money. She makes her money from her advertisers on her site.

exactly, how can anyone say a recipe is stolen when the major ingredient is a store bought mix? that lends credence to the idea that mw is on a witch hunt for her own gain.

Sorry, I don't come here very often. No, I don't work for Marlboro Woman. I'm an intelligent individual who can smell a phony a mile away. In my opinion, PW is about as disingenuous as they come.

You've been quite harsh on MW who it seems, to me at least, is only trying to present a well-documented case for plagiarism. She/He has photos of the lifted recipes plus the cookbooks Drummond stole from. Plus there are 2 other websites: Pie Near Woman and The Pioneer Woman Sux who also have documented evidence of Ree's less-than-pioneer lifestyle.

There's always two sides to a story and I happen to believe these websites have called it like it is.
