At OurFamilyWorld, we love sharing easy healthy recipes with you. We also love making them with our own families! Here’s the thing: I’m not the world’s best cook (unlike Olfa!), but I REALLY love trying new recipes and learning. I also love tweaking those recipes to make them a little easier for cooking novices. Over the years, I’ve collected recipes that worked out for me in various places; my computer, scraps of paper stuck in a book, and so on.
Then, there are my grandmother’s recipes. When she passed away, my mom and aunts got together and created a binder. They photocopied all my gran’s recipes and gave a copy to everyone. Finally, there are recipes right here on OurFamilyWorld that I really love! I want a way to combine all those recipes from so many sources into one beautiful book. You know something that can be passed down and cherished!
The Canon PIXMA MG7120 Wireless Inkjet Helps Create Stunning Family Heirlooms
If you want to create stunning family heirlooms, you need the right printer. The Canon PIXMA MG7120 Wireless Inkjet is exactly right for the job. What makes it so special? Pretty much everything! I am so madly in love with this printer!
Super sleek and stylish design: I am pretty short on office space, so I really appreciate the sleek design of the Canon PIXMA MG7120. When I first took it out of the box, I wondered “where on earth does the paper go? Where does it come out?” The paper trays actually slide out from the lower part of the printer, and the paper holder thing pops out when you need it.
Intuitive set-up: The Canon PIXMA MG7120 has a TON of features. So many that I was a little freaked out at first. I thought it would be complicated to set up. It’s not! In fact, the printer practically sets itself up! The touch screen panel on the top front of the printer guides you through the process, telling you when it needs your input. Half the time, I did other work while it did its thing without any help from me. It’s so self-sufficient, I was half expecting it to get up and make itself a cup of coffee!
Quiet Mode! Gone are the days of alerting everyone in the house every time you print something. When Quiet Mode is enabled, the Canon PIXMA MG7120 is so quiet, I actually printed something three times because I didn’t hear it printing! I was sitting at my computer with my back turned to the printer and sent a document for printing. I kept thinking “what am I doing wrong???” I also scanned something twice because, again, I didn’t hear anything. I love how quiet it is!
Print From Anywhere to Anywhere. Now this is the coolest part of the Canon PIXMA MG7120. In fact, I’m still exploring all the options with this feature. Basically, you can access cloud services on your printer itself to print from your online accounts at Dropbox, Photobucket, Facebook, and even your Twitter stream.
But that’s not all: you can access your printer from your smartphone or tablet! So say you’re out of town and your husband wants to make your kids their favorite dinner. The problem? The recipe is stored on your phone. Just use the Canon PIXMA Cloud App to send the recipe right to your printer.
It works in reverse too. For example, you want to show your mom your son’s new school picture, but forgot to bring it along. Just have your husband pop it in the scanner, then retrieve it from miles away! I tried it with my son’s picture, it took seconds!
You can even connect your Canon PIXMA MG7120 to your Google Cloud Print account and SHARE it with others! One word of advice: if you do share it, tell them to tell you when they’re going to print something. I would totally freak out if my printer started printing all by itself, even if it is super quiet about it.
With all these easy and fun features, we’re super excited to get started on our Family Cookbook project! Be sure to come back next month to learn all about how to use your Canon PIXMA MG7120 to make a seasonal family cookbook that you can pass down for generations to come!
What would you use your Canon PIXMA MG7120 for? What family heirloom would you love to create with it?
