Jillian one of my favorite 'not much fuss' recipes is Calico Beans. Don't have a hard recipe as you can do it a little different each time to taste. I will use a variety of canned beans (you can go to the trouble of dried...just will take longer) Mix a variety...blackeyed, pinto, lima, greenbeans (and/or wax), etc. . Brown a pound of ground beef add, cook up some bacon, crumble and add. Chop an onion throw it in (and some chopped green pepper if you like-I will usually leave it out so it is not so much like baked beans). Brown sugar to taste (I like it a bit on the sweet side so probably somewhere around a 1/2 C to a C) Squirt a bit of prepared mustard....and I will dump in a small bottle of bar-b-que sauce...whatever flavor you like. Can put it all in the crockpot or simmer on the stove. Then usually just have cornbread to eat with it. A lot of leeway in what you can do. Enjoy!

Hello Jillian, Meli and I have been working on th webpage with some of our favorite recipes on it. You may take a look at it if you want. Both of us are semi-retired professional chefs from Walt Disney World and a couple of the recipes came directly from the Disney kitchens. http://communities.msn.com/thedeliciouskitchen Sincerely, Ernest

Super venison burgers: 1 pound ground venison, two chopped onions, 1 egg, one cup picante sauce, salt and pepper to taste, crushed crackers or whole rolled oats to bind meat. Mix well. Make patties and fry in hot bacon fat. Yummy.

Kids love this one, and adults too!! We have this for a snack, or sometimes for supper, if we had a big lunch (like on weekends). there are several versions and you can play with it as you like:

Pizza Dip- spread a package of cream cheese on a pizza pan or a tray. I spread it kind of thin. Now top it with pizza sauce, thin also. Chop, by hand or with a food processor some peppers, olives, onions, mushrooms, and pepperoni or cooked sausage. Spread over the sauce. Top with grated mozzarella cheese. Use nacho chips to dip in. This is good and versatile as you can make it vegetarian, or change the toppings to what you like. I often throw in some broccoli, carrots and other good stuff!! With the sauce and pepperoni, you can't even taste it.

Version 2- top the cream cheese with salsa, peppers, onions, hamburger flavored with taco seasoning, finely shredded lettuce, some sour cream, chopped tomatoes, and cheddar cheese. It is now taco dip! Use the nachos again of course. I like the small round ones for this instead of the triangular thin ones. Tround ones don't break as easily. Experiment all you want.

You don't have to cook this, except the hamburger or sausage. I use a round pizza pan, probably about 12-14 inches across, and this makes enough for 6 people.
