As you will see in the recipe section, Lindsay came through beautifully. The recipes are truly wonderful.

I'm guessing it means something like "did/finished the job". Is that right?

She certainly did finish. But "come through" could mean two separate things about how the job was started.

In this context, "come through" as a phrasal verb could mean one or two things:

  1. to do something you've agreed to do. e.g., "I asked Lindsay to create recipes and she came through beautifully."
  2. to overcome/succeed when faced with a challenge: e.g., "I had asked Lindsay to create some recipes before her mother got sick. Lindsay was determined, however, and, as her mother healed, "she came through beautifully and produced these incredible recipes."
