    I tried to print one of your recipes. The print was so big and the line spacing was terrible--one word on a line and then a new line. I'd like to print these recipes so that they fit on a 4 X 6 card or piece of paper. I really enjoy looking at your recipes and trying new recipes. I am going to try the cheese soup one today. Your format is new and it probably needs some work on it. You do do a good job though!
