I need to find the files I uninstalled

However, if you saved them in the Mastercook program folder they may have been overwritten by the new version. That's why the 'My Documents' folder should always be used for saving your documents.
If you've already checked or searched for them (including the Recycle Bin) and they are nowhere to be found, it's just possible they may still be at least partially intact, but Windows has just marked the space they occupied as available for new files. This effectively makes the files invisible. In such cases, recovery software may be able to get them back. There's a roundup of free ones here: http://free-backup.i...ry-software.htm
Be aware that recovery software can't guarantee to retrieve all files fully intact. Some or all of them may be damaged, partially overwritten, or the filenames may not be complete. It depends how much data has been written to the space they once occupied.
