I’m put-out!

Scuttle the ads in the recipe print-outs (please?)!

It would be nice to be able to print the recipes without the ads. For me, I do NOT like the ads as a permanent "keepsake". It is a waste of my printer ink and paper. And because I do not see that I have a choice, I do not print my recipes in color or at a high resolution which makes them appear as something I do not consider of value either. :(

    I’m always happy when people care enough to write in and let us know what they like -- and don't!

    Thanks so much for writing us! And I do see how it would be nice to be able to print the recipes without the ads. However, we really need the ads to keep our site free -- and to do something no other similar site does -- which is actually to share revenue with the publishers and chefs and authors who created the recipes. It's precisely because we see the recipes and their accompanying headnotes as having value that we want to generate income to share with the people who created them. And we also hope that people will be inspired to buy the wonderful books from which these recipes come.

    I do hear you! And as we grow and generate more income to keep operations going and to share, we will definitely consider making our printouts ad free. But in the meantime, I do hope you'll stick with us.
    Many thanks!
