Today we were sat down minding our own business and the printer fired up and printed a page.'My gluten free Millionaire's Shortbread recipe' We don't do gluten free,have never visited the website it came from, and definitely never tried to print it.

Very strange

A couple of ideas:

If your printer supports and is set up for ePrint, it is possible someone (other than those you intend in Allowed senders) has managed to get a hold of your printer's email address.

 

If your Wireless is not secured, it is likely someone has used your Wireless network to access your printer.
