It shoulb be possible to click on a printer icon and print out the recipe only.

If that is possible (leaving out all the other stuff which I don't want to print) I cannot see how to do it. RON POLSON

Hi Ron,

The blog interface does not have this feature. However we may create a link for doing so in the next issue. For now, why not highlight the recipe, paste it into a word doc and then print it...

When the printer menu comes up click on pages instead of all and it will print "1" page. If you want more than one page key in the number of pages you want and it will only print the pages you have entered in that section.

After this printing it will go back to "all" and you have to change it to "pages" each time you only want 1 page.
