So not technical.

I’ve been trying to figure out over a year how to have printer friendly versions of my recipes.  I’ve gone on wordpress forums and the explanation on how to do it made no sense to me at all – first off, I don’t know how to write any code so I was pretty clueless from the get go.

I was on a blog yesterday, saw a recipe for Thai pizza and it had a printer friendly link.  Imagine my surprise when I figured out how to do it!  It’s a website called  You log in with an email and password and that’s it.  I put my recipe on a word document, uploaded it and it gives you an URL to link to.  😀

Breakfast was amazing – thanks to Can You Stay for Dinner I had the best pancakes – Blueberry Lemon Zest Pancakes!  The only difference was that I let my batter sit for 15 minutes to get extra fluffy pancakes.  You can print out a printer friendly version of the recipe here.

So fluffy!  I had three lite sausage links on the side.  Breakfast:  337 calories, 42 carbs, 17.4 protein, 12.2 protein and 1.9 fiber.  While my recipe card says serves one, I only had two of the four pancakes.

Lisa at Jersey Girl Cooks was my inspiration for lunch.  It’s not an exact duplicate because I used what I had on hand.   You can print out my recipe here.

my plate - but I threw out the bread when I found mold! 😦

468 calories, 30 carbs, 21 fat, 21 protein, 5.2 fiber

Dinner was pork loin done on the grill.  It was nice hanging out with Tony on the deck while dinner cooked – it almost felt like summer!  And our dog loves it too – so much to see!

I just used a lemon pepper mix on the pork with grilled veggies on the side.

My plate: 3 ounce pork, broccoli potatoes and spicy bbq sauce!

Dinner:  437 calories, 39 carbs, 25 fat, 8.4 protein, 12.6 fiber (thanks to the broccoli!)

Stats for Tuesday:  No exercise (worked through lunch)

BSI is taking a break this week because of Easter – Christina will be our host next week, so stay tuned!

Also, check out my brother’s recap of Fit Bloggin!  So wish I could have been there! 😦

Off to get ready for work – have a great Wednesday!

  1. I’m stealing that tip on printable recipes!

    I wish I had actually known about Fit Bloggin far enough in advance to sign up for it. It was less than 20 blocks from my house! Right around the corner from my Whole Foods! I’m a little embarassed I missed it 😦

    Happy Wednesday!

  2. Congrats on the printable recipes. I set that up on But I did it with a custom style sheet and being a web developer does help a bit when doing one’s own web sites.

  4. man, those pancakes are to die for!

  5. As usual the food looks amazing, those pancakes will probably make an appearance here this week 😛 I love stuffing peppers, just such a cool presentation. I can’t wait until we get decent grilling weather here, I have managed to sneak in one grilling day so far. And I hope you don’t mind if I steal your printable recipe tip, so cool.
    The labbie is adorable, I have a black lab too, such sweet dogs.

  6. Your pancakes look amazing! Love your tip of letting the batter rest to get them extra fluffy.

    I’m so glad you found the printable recipe site, because I do a lot of copy/paste with your recipes – this will be very cool now!

  9. hello fluffy pancakes 🙂 i could dig right in! i’ve thought about the printer-friendly recipes, i usually just try to write it in a way that’s easy to copy and paste! i know some people use google documents, too. it’s been raining for days again here, so i’m jealous of your grill and being outside!

  10. I really need to make my recipes printer friendly. I think that it would make things easier for me and readers. Our weather is suppose to change for the better this weekend. I cannot wait to get outside and use the grill again. Your meal looks so yummy!

  11. Gah, I want those pancakes!

    I wish you could come over and teach me how to grill like that! Always looks so perfect 🙂

  12. I never thought of just throwing broccoli on the grill like that. Can’t wait to try it.

  13. DiningAndDishing

    your pancakes are making me SO JEALOUS! i met a friend for lunch today and we thought we could order blueberry buckwheat pancakes where we went. but they stopped serving them at 11! such a shame…

  15. Droooooollllllllllllllll, those pancakes look so divine!! 🙂

    What a great idea to grill your broccoli and potatoes!! I need to tell Andrew about that, looks so good!! 🙂

  16. I’m not technical at all. I can’t even figure wordpress out! It confuses the heck out of me.

    Moldy bread= YUCK! That sucks.

    grilled broccoli sounds way better than steamed. I need to get a grill and try it.

  17. Do you ever know how to cook!

    I didn’t realize that pancakes get fluffier when you let the batter sit… is that the case for all pancake recipes? If so I am TOTALLY going to start doing that. I love fluffy pancakes.

  18. Thanks for the tip on the printable version–I’ve been wondering the same thing myself! Very cool. Those pancakes look delish and your dog is adorable.

  19. Thanks for the tip on printable recipes, that is so helpful! Pancakes and stuffed bell peppers look totally yummy!

  20. Yummy yum!! So glad the printable recipes worked out – I never knew how to do that either!

    Love the pupper pic!

  21. Wow-o-wow, those pancakes look fantastic! Hope I don’t short out my laptop from the drooling! And I’m glad to hear you all are having some nice weather. We’re still getting rain out here in California, which is great, because otherwise things would be all brown by now.

  22. Thanks for sharing that link, Biz! That looks like a great site.
    Sorry it’s been so long since I’ve checked in! Things have been crazy. Thank you for the support on the new blog 🙂

  23. thanks for the info, that’s something i’ve been wanting to do for a while too! the stuffed peppers look awesome!

  24. Oh, wow, those pancakes look so good!! Problem is, if I made them, I’d eat a lot more than one serving.The stuffed peppers look so good as well. I never knew how to do printable recipes either. Good to know.

  25. Thanks so much for stopping by. It is a pleasure to discover your blog and those pancakes are perfection!

  26. Printable recipes! amazing! Whenever I print some recipes from blogs it doesn’t look great. but from now on this would be gone! Good to know!

  27. Nice pancakes!!

    I still have to try stuffed peppers, that’s on my to-do list!

  28. We had to use Google sites to get printable recipes. Took some time, but it’s worth it. Thanks for sharing your new find though!

  29. Those are so SERIOUSLY fluffy pancakes Biz!

  30. Wow, you’re really dedicated with your calorie counting, how long have you been doing it?
    Love love love that bbq season is here for us! And those pancakes, they look SO fluffy!

  31. I am all over checking out the print link. I currently use the WP plugin but it prints my entire post with the how-to’s. I’d rather just have the option to link/print just the recipe. Thanks for sharing!

    Those pancakes….YUM! I like how you grilled your potatoes and broccoli on the grill – I never thought of doing that straight up versus a grill basket or skewer 🙂

  32. […] run except the Saturday mile that I will walk as I need one day off a week.  For Breakfast I made Lemon-Blueberry pancakes, that Biz had on her site OMG they were incredible.  Both Ben and I think the only pancakes we […]
