My wife does not like peanut butter, nuts, some dried fruits, or chocolate chips, so I have had to modify my recipe so she could take these tasty and healthy snack bars to work. With as many substitutions possible as your imagination allows, you can change the recipe to fit your on-hand pantry items.
The only bad thing about these granola bars is how fast they disappear! I have to ration my kids on these things!
A spicy, tangy butter mixture to serve with steak or as a condiment on hamburgers.
Spatching a whole chicken before cooking on the BBQ takes a little time and effort, but is fairly easy to do. As the sun was shining we had an impromptu BBQ with some friends and I created this marinade recipe on the spur of the moment. Please feel free to change the ingredients to suit your own taste.
You can use these meatballs on pasta or in sandwiches. Or you may just find that people want to grab them right off the grill and pop them in their mouths.

No one likes bland food, and Army privates are no different. This beef stew has a little kick to it, thanks to a coating of cayenne pepper. A great recipe for beginners, try it yourself. Adapted from the 1910 Manual for Army Cooks.
This is an easy recipe that can be used for a tailgate or a party. Use Hot Sausage for a little more zing.
These ranch beans have been confused with mild chili at times but they're just good eatin' beans. And you don't want to stand near the campfire after downin' a plate or 2 of these babies.

I have made these on our fall camping trips. I use a cast iron skillet and a cast iron dutch oven.

This onion-y rabbit stew, spiced with Tabasco sauce and Cajun seasoning is great cooked in a cast iron kettle over a hot camp fire.
This cornbread is a simple recipe - only eleven ingredients. To ensure that the cakey dough doesn't dry out, stir in some sour cream, milk, and a little creamed corn.
This fresh salsa is so easy, you'll wonder why you ever used to buy the canned stuff. It's very spicy, so omit some of the peppers if you're serving to a crowd that likes salsa a little more toned down.
Triple spicy? Yes indeed: from jalapeno peppers, Tabasco, and pepper jack cheese. Can you handle the heat?
We generally eat large chunks of dead cow or pig here on the ranch. Every once in awhile, though, we like to cater to the more delicate taste buds of the gals by cooking up some fish. Salmon is a good one that doesn't usually offend the men too much, but, since there aren't many salmon running the rivers here in New Mexico, we generally have to use canned salmon. Here is a really basic salmon patty that can be "adjusted" in many, many ways to suit almost any need.
Delicious! Best prepared on the grill of course, but I freeze them and cook them on my Foreman during the winter.
