    Specifically one that was created when my phone was not rooted, is there anything I need to do other than apply the backup through recovery? I'd like to keep the apps and settings I have on the particular backup without totally flashing the stock ROM again.

    Also, if I've already applied the backup, can I still boot into recovery to wipe the cache if needed?

    As long as you have a custom recovery installed it will remain. When you go from one ROM to another, or install a backup of another ROM you must:

    1.wipe cache partition.
    2.wipe dalvik cache(advanced section)
    3.wipe data/factory reset.Now that your rooted YOU MUST NEVER USE THE FACTORY RESET IN THE PRIVACY MENU ON THE PHONE
    4.format boot,system.data,and cache
    as you see you will lose all data. Make a backup before you restore the first backup
    Any data that is on the backup will be there when you restore. All apps,all settings,and everything will be in the same place you left it when you backed up. All will be just the way you left it.

    If you do a batch backup of all your apps with Titanium Backup,then when you do a batch install of all apps and data your apps and settings will fall right back into place(widgets are the only thing that wont fall into place)
