AT LAST, PRINTABLE RECIPES

You may have noticed (I hope) that I’ve been working on upgrading my blog. Since I’m somewhat of a technophobe, it’s been an uphill struggle. Many hours of research, trial and error, and some successes have produced less-than-spectacular results. I know, I know. I could have just hired someone. But this is my effort in educating myself on html code and on the mechanics of blogs. Once I get it all down, I probably will hire someone to get me a more professional look.

My latest small success is printable recipes. You’ll only see the latest two recipes for now, but I’ll add this feature on all new posts and slowly move backwards through the remaining unprintables on this blog.

I researched three different ways to do printable recipes, and tested each out. All three ended in dead ends for me for various reasons. Finally, I found simple instructions on how to do this at Food Blog Alliance. I know this is not a big deal to someone who is computer savvy, but for a technophobe like me, it's cause for celebration! If you print any of my recipes and find errors, please let me know so I can fix them. Otherwise, enjoy my new feature, and I’ll continue to work on upgrading this site with my very limited computer skills.
