A stock recovery will only allow you to factory reset, clear the cache, or install signed
update.zip files. This means that you cannot do anything custom (like an unofficial rom, tweak, or anything else not samsung signed.) you cannot use it to make nandroid backups, nor can you use it to recover nandroid backups.
A custom recovery allows unsigned flashing, backups, restores, and more.
