The best you can do in Word (which is not a page layout program) is to
insert a page break and then copy and paste the contents.

If you have a recent version of Word, there is a much better approach than
using two columns. In Word 2000 and above, you can use "2 pages per sheet"
under "Multiple pages" in the Page Setup dialog, which will allow you to
treat each half sheet as a true page (you can even use page borders). If you
have Word 2002 or above, you can use "Book fold," which accomplishes the
same thing but also automatically prints your pages in the proper order to
create a folded booklet.

To make it easier to enter your recipes, it's best to create a few simple
styles for the title, ingredients, instructions, etc.

Hi Suzanne,
In Word, I resized a picture on one page now want to make similar pictures the same size. Is there a keyboard command which repeats the format/resize picture command I just used?
Many Thanks
