No need for recipes if you aren't doing something specific.  Brown the 
bones in a hot oven for twenty minutes or so.  Stick them in a big pot 
with some celery, a roughly chopped skin-on onion and a bay leaf.  Cover 
with water and simmer for a few hours.  Skim off the crap that floats to 
the top.  Cool as rapidly as possible by filling the sink with water and 
any ice you have in the fridge, the putting the pot in it and 
occasionally shaking.

Stock's dead easy and makes all the difference in your cooking.  
Especially soups.
