I also like the recipe metaphor. One of my favorite perl books is the Perl 
Cookbook (

It assumes you already know perl but if you don't do it every day (like me) 
its very handy. Has simple little routines such as "how to process every file 
in a directory" and such. It could almost be looked at as a set of 
application building blocks.

My only caveat would be that all recipies with the same purposes be grouped 
together, but I'm sure that's already a consideration :)
