Spray each pan with cooking spray. Pour 1 can peaches with juice into each pan. Combine cornstarch with booze and mix ½ with peaches in each pan. Sprinkle peaches with brown sugar - about 1/3 cup for each. Sprinkle with cinnamon if desired. Place pans in 350* oven for 10-15 minutes.

Bean Dip

from Andrea
1 c. zesty Italian dressing
1/2 c. cider vinegar
1/2 c. salsa (how ever hot you like. I use medium.)
1 green & red pepper chopped
1 bunch green onions chopped
1 each 14 oz. cans corn, black beans, pinto beans, lima beans, kidney beans, chick peas, great northern beans.

Drain and rinse the beans and corn. Dry.  Mix the remaining ingredients together. 
Is better to let marinate for a few hours first.
Serve with Fritos scoops.
I find it easier to mix everything in a ziplock bag.
