    1. Hi Debbie, if you take a look above the ingredients, you will see a row of icons, select the red one which says ‘share’ and then select ‘Print Friendly’. You will then get a pop up screen with the recipe, and if you hover over the sections, you can have the option to delete parts you don’t want, such as photos etc. I hope this helps!
      (the same button can also be found on the far left of every page in a vertical row of icons , for PC, and at the bottom of your screen (usually titled ‘share’) for mobile devices.
