Yes definitely switch off between the two to keep from getting your skills too one sided which will make getting them back up very painful with lots of failures.
Defintely stop each time you level to craft your recipes once (and at this time I can't see a way to know if you have crafted them before you start so You'll have to keep track yourself) You get very good XP for those recipe compared to the work orders but of course you get no cash for them unelss you can sell them on the market.
I can defintely see where crafting moderate items at C 1x work orders would be probably the fastest to level. But you get very little reward for it. Though frankly I'm not sure what to do with my inventory issues due to crafting "rewards" and which of them I'll be able to use later vs needing to get rid of.
So far I'm mid-8 the fun thing is that so far in 8 levels I've made 5-6 items that either myself of my guildmates could use at our current adventure level..so it feels worthwhile.
