      I’m used to sites that offer a “printer friendly” option to shorten the pages used and yet increase the Font Size (once al the ads are not included there is plenty of room for big print).
      The recipe sounds wonderful and I can’t wait to try it!

      Your website is very user UNfriendly.  When I printed this recipe, it took 3 pages.  Why have so many blank lines between steps.
