I'm trying to print off recipes and they are all going to 2 pages. Not cool. I don't need that really large picture up on top but there's no way to get rid of it. And cutting and pasting is not working well either. Come on, Better Homes, let's be a little bit more user-friendly, shall we?

Don't know where my original rating on this went, but 5 stars, fantastic & delicious! The only note I had was to use panko instead of regular bread crumbs.
