  1. I appreciate your blog, yet once again I wish to point out that your recipes are excellent, however, they are not printer friendly and are thus useless.

    When I use print preview on my computer, there is always a message on your website, usually saying ‘connect with the healthy voyager’ obstructing the recipe.

    Please make your recipes printer friendly.

    Thank you.
