I've put together a demo of this at
http://www.qdk.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php?n=Cookbook.RecipeA.  (I've also
got some test data in RecipeB and a RecipeC as well - feel free to
create new ones.)

I've configured it such that for testing purposes you can vote more
than once - presumably in a final version that would be limited as it
is by default with StarRater.

I've set up the labels as being a way to vote re usage but maybe it
would be better to use it as a "recommended" or not?  The recipe is
very flexible, so there's all kinds of ways we can display differently
and etc.

Anyway, please take a look and give your thoughts - I would love to
see something like this implemented on the main site so we can get an
idea of what recipes are either most recommended or most used by other
