Default Mac /apple text edit program simple question

my wife looks at recipes on the net. most can be captured from the net by doing a screen shot, which captures that one page into a file, I give it a name, then I put that file into her recipe folder.

But what if the recipe is 2 pages long , ? I don't want to have only the recipe URL say as a bookmark as someone may take down the url.Using screen shot only gets one page. I tried taking two screen shot (page 1 and page 2 but for some reason could not merge them using cut and paste.
any suggestions?
Thanks

Copy and paste both pages into note pad or equivalent and then save and name the file.

You would be saving it to the computer. PDF is a type of file. Click print, then when the next box opens up on the lower left side I think click save to pdf. Much better than screen shots, searchable too.
