As you might already know, TypePad is set up so that when you print your blog, you get a printer-friendly version that is easier for people to read on the page. It doesn't include your sidebars or other design elements. All you need to do is go to File > Print within your browser to do this.
While this does make it easy to print your entire post, sometimes you might want to only print specific sections. This is particularly helpful for items like recipes or to do lists. This is easy to do by using the third-party Print Friendly to your blog.
You need to first go here and copy that code into each post where you'd like to have the button to print the recipe. Then, your readers can click on that button to get a printer-friendly version of your post. That will then allow them to print the entire post or delete sections so that only the items like a recipe remains.
You can see this in action on the TypePad blog The Bitten Word.
