I don't even know why you care about the recipes. I've spent about 30 million gold on the new recipes so far and nothing is better than what I already had.
I'm occasionally put some of my crafted gear on because I feel bad wasting so much gold on them. It sucks wasting so much gold only to lose a ton of EHP or DPS.
You need to consider who those recipes were for, though.
The devs even said it in their Q&A answers. Thing is, people with high level, high quality, endgame gear need these recipes FAR less than people who go without the AH for their upgrades. Sure, people who bought gear on the AH that can allow them to faceroll MP10? They can TRY for some upgrades via the recipes, and there's a CHANCE they might get them.
But my low level Paragons, that JUST made it to Inferno, that have on gear that's lower than ilvl63? Those recipes would benefit them in a huge way! Hell, if I make two successful upgrades for one character, that jacks up their DPS and survivability enough that he or she can take on MP5 or 6 (seeing as they're still between 0-2), or they become strong enough to take on ubers solo so I can make a Hellfire Ring or two, that'd be a step up as well.
I mean, just looking at your main, Chillaxin, you likely got all that gear on the AH, and your DPS is around 300k (which has got to be enough to handle MP10), so naturally, you don't need these recipes at all. Like I said, trying them gives you a CHANCE to get something better, but the chances of you getting upgrades is far less likely than someone like me getting upgrades from them, when my characters all have on all gear that I found.
