If the recipes were stored in a folder in form of some one, then you can use a recovery application to get the data back. Access the Recuva's application page at Software Informer and download it. Install the application and then use the Wizard guide. Make sure to choose all formats if you don't know the exact file extension and guide the wizard to look into the folder where you believe the data is stored on.
TIP: Enable Deep Search to increase accuracy for finding the correct files.
