Question about plagiarism

I am a lover of food and cook very well, however I am very worried about self publishing a cook book of mine. these are recipes I have developed myself, however in the several years I have been in the profession I have noticed that some recipes are very similar to mine. Is that plagiarism, even if I made the recipe up myself but found one thats sort of like mine?
and do the star chefs, even the internet ones, REALLY make up their own recipes 100% of the time? What about things like puff pastry, I mean there are only so many ways you can make that. The old classic's are the only way to do it, really.
