  1. Dear Amy, I just discovered your blog through Pinterest. I love your recipes. I can pin them, but to cook from them, I prefer to print a paper copy. No matter what I do (highlight and try to print, or use your print button or copy to WordPerfect and try to print from there) nothing works. I don’t know if there is a problem on my end because everything else prints, or is your site is set up so you can’t really print from it. I have been trying for 3 days, that’s how much I like your recipes ( I love the pastel tea breads) Thank you in advance.

    • Thank you for making me aware. I will get working on it, sorry for the inconvenience, I am better at cooking than techno! 😳

    • Most local bakeries can make it for you, but it is hard for them to completely control the color, so I just asked for the lightest color possible. I used Granite Bakery in Salt Lake City, and they were terrific! Good luck! ~Amy
