I tried to recreate the error and one of the things that would cause this is if you are missing a semicolon after your final include statement

<?php
include "classes/recipes.php";
include "classes/render.php";
include "classes/recipecollection.php";
include "inc/allrecipes.php";    // removing the semicolon here causes the error 

$cookbook = new RecipeCollection("Treehouse Recipes");
$cookbook->addRecipe($lemon_chicken);
$cookbook->addRecipe($granola_muffins);
