What is the best, most orderly way to add and organize recipes on my Kindle Touch for optimal viewing?

I'm fairly new to my Kindle, and have discovered the joys of Instapaper and the Gutenberg Library, but I really want it to become my compiled home cookbook.
We have lived on a boat and will again (read: enough power to charge a Kindle, little to no internet access). The last time we did, I copied and scanned our favorite recipes and printed them all double-sided into a fat, awkward three-ring binder. And then we carried another four cookbooks. I'd like to convert that three-ring binder to my Kindle Touch.
At this time, I have access to a great scanner (scans to pdf, jpg, whatever). Bottom line, I want to be able to 1) scan favorite recipes from books, and 2) take favorites off the web, and compile them all with a table of contents and "chapters."
Ideally, all this would live somewhere else, to be cleaned, added to and edited when able and needed, and then re-synced to the Kindle. I can't lose or break the Kindle and have lost my recipes forever.
I'm willing to work a bit to make this happen, though I draw the line at re-typing every single recipe.
