      Hi there, there is a "Print Friendly" button at the top of each/every recipe. (Rather than printing them, you can print them to "PDF" files and save them in a folder on your computer for later perusal, if you'd like.

      not a big fan of pdf files... take up too much room and can't share online. but thanks. I usually just save them on a Word doc and then to a folder on my computer, so I'm not printing them out.
