How to Print Recipes

We completely understand that sometimes when you print, you only want to include certain information. Perhaps you want to save ink and not print photographs, or perhaps you only need the ingredients list for a recipe, not the full directions, etc.

With that in mind, our entire site is set up with a printer friendly function that is super easy to use and gives you full control over choosing which information to print.

How to Print Recipes or Articles

There is a print button at the top and bottom of every single recipe that allows you to selectively choose which portions of the page you wish to print. The bar is located directly under the Title of the Post, under the feature image (if there is one).

Here’s a screenshot of the top of a recipe page, in this case, our Copycat pot roast seasoning mix.
