In this chapter our goal is to create a Flash widget that shows each recipe for a cooking web site. Since the structure of most recipe web sites is fairly consistent, I believe this example will easily illustrate how to create any form of custom content and display it within a Flash application. I am confident that after you read this chapter, you should be able to easily apply the lessons learned in this chapter to any type of custom implementation that your web site requires. So, let's take a moment to set up Drupal so that its data structure resembles that of a common recipe web site.
If you were to visit any popular recipe web site, you will most likely see a categorized listing of recipes ranging from cake to pot roast. When you click on one of these listings, you will see a new page that gives the information necessary to make that recipe. In Drupal terms, this recipe page is a single node that is categorized using a content type called Recipe.
