I'm not sure about the recipe idea... I thought that recipes were designed for aggregating news items like RSS feeds. Is that assumption incorrect?

However if there is indeed a way to incorporate a way of the URL being supplied by the user into that which Starson17 indicates some options for then that sounds like a much better approach given it does most of what you need?
It seems like the only input I really need is a URL. Even if the plugin simply pops up a dialog box asking for it and then processes from there, I should be able to do the rest automatically. Is there a simple way to get user input?
