9. You get a page that looks like this. Now copy and paste the recipe into the blank area under the title. I like to include one image of the finished dish. To add an image Click the INSERT button located in the upper left hand corner. Choose a small image and upload it.

11. Copy the URL of the page you just created and go back to your blog.  Under your recipe type something like "Print Recipe" and add your link. You can also create a button and link that to your printable recipe page. When a reader click on the link, they are then taken to the  Google page you have created where they can print the page. 

 

The process looks much more complicated than it really is. You can create printable pages for DIY projects, craft and art tutorials, and other projects that your readers might want to save.
