"Blueprint" also sorta implies design, as opposed to "recipe" which is slightly more neutral.

So then... you don't believe in the Master Chef??
;-)
But seriously, a blueprint usually specifies tolerances, and there are possibilities to mis-read the blueprint just as there are errors in following a recipe.

Eyes may have evolved separately a number of times but all from a single source.

Perhaps a helpful observation would be that, while eyes have evolved more than once, they have evolved differently in (widely) different species. Also, don't forget the species such as cave-dwelling fish that have "lost" their eyes after may generations of living in total darkness. Evolution in action.
