There are already a number of free applications for this. I have
reviewed over a dozen of them in the past year. Drupal has a recipe
module, Gourmet for Gnome users, Krecipes for KDE users. ReciPants in
Perl, Qookbook, to name a few off the top of my head. Some of them will
link into the USDA Nutrition Database as well. You may not need to
reinvent this particular wheel.
