Online Cookbook Improvement Suggestion

I noticed that the "best" recipes are the ones with the highest average stars, regardless of how many people rated the recipe. I see this as an issue with the usefulness of the online cookbook.
If I post my own recipe on the site, and then rate it 5 stars, its going to be higher rated than the better four and three star recipes, irregardless if it truly is better. Folders, should not have to sift through so much garbage to find the gems of algorithms.
In addition, it seems to me that the creme de la creme of the recipes should be included in the updates.
It is with this, that I think a way to enhance the current cookbook and recipes would be to take into account the number of players and the number of stars assigned to the recipe, and if it receives enough stars then it will be included with the game release.
1) Recipe must have an Average rating of 3 or more stars
2) There need to be at least 10% of players of who's global rank is higher than 6031 (Because there are a lot 0 points.)
if the average number of stars from folders is greater than the first two rules multiplied together, then it also is accepted.
So, for you math savvy people:
(NumPlayers w/ rank >6031)*10%*3 Stars = Necessary for recipe to be accepted for game release.
Coincidentally, if less players award the recipe five stars and it gets the necessary star limit, it should also be included.
