In case it's not clear, there are currently only two ways to run recipes. You can start the gui, and let the scheduled recipes run, or you can use ebook-convert to make a book format outside of Calibre's database (and then import it into the database, if needed, with calibredb). The former will do all the normal things that happen with a recipe, like adding tags, sending it via email, etc. The latter is just a method of creating a book and adding that book to the db.
