I tried to remove the encryption but it asked for an owner password, which sadly is not the same as the password I have to view the PDF.

Only an electronic licence was purchased so the pdf is probably locked down 6 ways from Sunday. They most likely have more options, to buy, of course, to allow printing it. Like an E-book, you can read it in a reader but that's all.
That said, you can take a snip or screen shot of the recipe Mom wants and save it in Paint and print it as a picture. Lower quality, but would work.

that got me thinking britton ,another way would be after snipping the recipe if you have microsoft office then open onenote insert the snip into a new page then right click the snip and select copy txt from pic then paste it into a new word document .this would keep the quality, although a complete PITA.

Thanks boohbah, the only office I know is Word, Excel, and Power point (to read presentations, not make them). I'm not familiar with One Note. Sounds like a better way to keep print quality though.

Screenshots

As suggested by Britton30, screenshot the page and print the result.

I use that method to get copies of my course test results.
I hate taking tests and not finding out where I went wrong.

Screenshots are useful for all sorts of things.
A lot of Windows info screens don't have the option to create a txt file listing of them (e.g. Programs and Features, NIC adapter settings, etc.).
I just take screenshots of them.

If I successfully use some complex Command Prompt instruction, I screenshot the result, so that when I need to do it again (in a few months time) I don't have to" reinvent the wheel".

I guess you have to do what Bill2 said - contact the author. Else you could copy the file to a tablet (e.g. iPad or Xoom). That might be handier in the kitchen.
