Default error while trying to display db info

I have these 2 pages (search/display), search sends over the ID of the item which was selected, allowing me to display the selected items. I'm getting this error now, even if I hard code the data "select * from Recipe where ID = '1'", it still gives me to same error message... Any ideas as to what I'm doing wrong???

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers (0x80040E07)
[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] Data type mismatch in criteria expression.
/cookbook/display.asp, line 16

line 16 -> Set rs = db.Execute ("SELECT * FROM Recipe WHERE ID = '"&recipe_ID&"'")

 recipe_ID = Request.Form("recipe_name")
 if (IsEmpty(recipe_ID)) = TRUE then
  Set db = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
  db.Open = "Cookbook"

  Set rs = db.Execute ("SELECT * FROM Recipe WHERE ID = '"&recipe_ID&"'")
   meal = rs("R_name")
   category = rs("R_category")
   instructions = rs("R_instructions")
   ingredients = rs("R_ingredients")
   picture = rs("R_picture")
 end if

<table width=100%>
   dim arringredients
   arringredients = Split(ingredients, ",")
   for i=0 to UBound(arringredients)
    Response.Write "<li>"&arringredients(i)&"</li>"
  <img src="<%=picture%>" alt="<%=meal%>" border="0" width="200" height="200">

 Dim arrinstruct
 arrinstruct = Split (instructions,":")
 for j=0 to UBound(arrinstruct)
  k = j+1
  Response.Write("<b>Step "&k&" </b>"&arrinstruct(j)&"<br>")

Hi there,

If the ID in the table Recipe is a Number, you shouldn't enclose it's value in quotes:

Set rs = db.Execute ("SELECT * FROM Recipe WHERE ID = " & recipe_ID)

You should use quotes only for data types like text and dates.
