Let's get small

I assume everyone is in the same boat I am -- less space than ever. But readers want more recipes than ever. What's a girl to do?

What clever things are you doing to beef up the content of your sections while using less space?

After all, many of us are home cooks. Make less taste like more ought to be right up our alleys.

As space shrinks, we have been offering more "bonus" recpies online. Since food news has become such a hot topic and "locavore" was the Oxford word of the year last year, I expect more food stories to run on the front page, however I doubt newsroom editors are ready to give space to recipes. In the future I think newspaper staffs may need to cede the recipe function of their job to magazines or online sources. But it might be smart to try to team up with an online recipe database. The benefit? Cross promotion. Weekly food sections are still more timely than a monthly magazine.
