Printing Recipes From This Site

I had a comment the other day from a man who suggested that I make this site where you could just click and print the recipe without having to get the pages of comments along with it.  Sounds like a good idea but not possible and I’ll explain why.

First of all this is a recreational recipe site not a professional recipe website that has money backing it and everything it does.  It is hosted on WordPress.com which hosts the site for free and which I use their free blogging soft ware to publish my recipes and pictures.  The key word to all of this is free.  It would be nice if I had the money to make the site easier to use but since my husband passed away from Lung Cancer in August I have no income and am existing by the benevolence of my son and daughter-in-law.   I live with them and my 5 year old grandson.  I earn my keep by doing the housework, cooking, cleaning, laundry and babysitting my grandson while they work. 

I do however have a suggestion that could eliminate the problem with printing the recipe without having to print the comments.  I use this solution all the time on websites that I can actually print from but prefer to do it this way because it eliminates some of the garbage that I don’t want to waste ink and paper on. 

Simply copy and paste to a document in a word processing program.  There is a free program available if you do not have a word processing program, in fact I use it all the time.  It is Open Office and you can obtain it here or you can visit http://www.openoffice.org if you don’t want to click on the link.  Not only will that solve the problem but you can adjust the font type and size more to your liking which is especially nice if you prefer to have larger print.

So Jim I hope that solves the problem for you.  I appreciate every one who takes the time to leave a comment, especially after you’ve tried one of my recipes (whether you like the recipe or not).  I realize that not everyone is going to like my recipes, but that is alright, that is why God made us all different.

Back To Business

It’s been a while since I’ve updated this here old recipe blog.  It’s been a busy year this past year and although that might just sound like an excuse to some, it’s been more in depth than just busy.

From January 4, 2009 to August 26, 2009 I was my husbands caregiver while he put up the fight of his life battling lung cancer.  Sadly he lost his battle on August 26, 2009.  While I haven’t been busy for the last seven months, I just haven’t had the, for lack of a better word, gumption to even mess with recipes to post here. 

Grief is a very subjective thing.  Everyone handles it differently.  In reality I started grieving the day that my husband was diagnosed.  His doctor was very upfront with us and let us know what to expect and just how much time he had left.  The prognosis was not at all good.  The reality of the situation was that with or without treatment he was looking at six to nine months and in the end he lived for seven months and 22 days.  Pretty much in the middle of the prognosis.  He had always said that he would NEVER do chemo but when it came down to it and with reality hitting him in the face, he chose to do chemo.  He was not a candidate for radiation because his cancer was so extensive that they would have to radiate nearly all of his body. 

Anyway, got a little off track there.  The gist of what I’m trying to say is that I’m back and I hope to be posting more entries on a more regular basis.
