I am not even sure if a recipe that counts the ratings is required. A reader 
of the recipe page can quickly scan the "Endorsments" section to read 
the "votes" and comments.

A page variable like {=$Rating} could be used in pagelists, but again, the 
comments (messages, arguments) after the "votes" are more important than the 
number of such votes. And the people behind the comments are even more 

An endorsment from Pm is worth more than a dozen button clicks from anonymous 
visitors, at least in my system of values.
