Chocolate Cookies & Cream Cake

 

 

In an effort to try and make things easier for you all, I attempted this recipe formatting plugin thingy and, I’ve gotta say, I don’t love it. I think it looks clumsy. That said, I know it’s a pain in the rear end to print my recipes normally, so I’m trying to step outside my comfort zone.

 

Any recs for me? Anyone have a WordPress recipe plugin that you love (and, ahem, don’t have have to pay for?)   In the meantime, you should, at least, be able to print this one easily!
