    This was an excellent article but when I went to print the recipe, I could not get it all on one sheet of paper. If the photo was just a little smaller, that would have happened. Please consider this. I hate to waste paper and take up so much room in my binder for two lines…..

    On all printers I've seen there is an option to "fit content to media" which would make it fit on the paper.
