There are three stylesheets specified with media="print".

Component: Untriaged → Printing: Output
Product: Firefox → Core
The same problem also occurs in Chrome, so I suspect this is an error (or intentional)
in the style sheet(s).

When inspecting the DOM:

<link type="text/css" rel="Stylesheet" media="screen" href="/stylesheets/base_1370863158.css"></link>
<link type="text/css" rel="Stylesheet" media="print" href="/stylesheets/base_1370863158.css"></link>
<link type="text/css" rel="Stylesheet" media="print" href="/stylesheets/print_1370863158.css"></link>
<link type="text/css" rel="Stylesheet" media="print" href="/stylesheets/print_my_cookthink_1262669081.css"></link>

This last CSS "/stylesheets/print_my_cookthink_1262669081.css" has plenty of `display: none` :)
when we deactivate it we can see the page, that said I have the feeling the print CSS needs to be reworked as a whole. It doesn't really work as intended it seems.

This is a candidate for Feel free to move it there and close it here.

This is still the case.
That said. I guess nobody really uses their Print feature because of the print button on recipes.
which leads to
Which has a nice print preview.

Basically they could just drop the print CSS

I  noticed that the footer sports a proud 2012, which makes me think that the site is not really maintained.
