Store your recipes in a SQL database, SQLExpress works fine for that, Then use an HMI application to handle selecting a recipe and moving it to the PLC. I'm sure you could use AdvancedHMI for this, with a little bit of work, and for free.

Ignition as an HMI would make this an absolute breeze, but is more expensive.

You could probably also use something like a Red Lion HMI, or DataStationPlus.
