[scribus] Doing a cookbook - how to treat each recipe

I put together a list of recipes in OOo writer. I've exported to PDF
and used psnup, pstops and ps2pdf to print it out in shrink the text
70%, flip it from portrait to landscape and do 2 pages per side, 4
pages per sheet. The numbering for the Table of Contents and Index
comes out okay - and it works okay as a basic fold-in-half booklet.
However! I would like to do something a little better. I'd like to
incorporate images. I'd like to generate an e-book, or possibly a good
print-quality book.

When putting this together, wuld I treat each chapter as a separate
file, then merge them? Would I do it as one file and just deal with
the length of time it takes to load (right now I'm at 124 pages).
Would I create a new text box for each recipe, to make it easier to
put images where I want them? I simply opened Scribus an d imported
text from my OOo Writer file, but that makes it hard to put images
where I want them - as I did all 124 pages as one huge text box.
