I am allergic to eggs and I've been using this recipe for over 40 years.

Apple Pan Betty

Rating: 5 stars 93
I FOUND this recipe soon after I was married 47 years ago. It uses few ingredients, which are usually on hand, and takes little time to put together. It's a favorite of ours during fall and winter, when apples are at their best. -Shirley Leister, West Chester, Pennsylvania

Southern Red Velvet Cake

This is a typical Cuban chicken fricassee dish. It's easy to make and quite tasty. This goes best over white rice and some fried plantains.

French Onion Soup with Homemade Beef Stock

Rating: 4.5 stars 10
While making beef stock from scratch is time-consuming, it really makes the best beef broth for French onion soup! Of course, you can always buy beef stock, too (if you are in a hurry)! This serves four as a main course with crunchy French bread and a simple side salad (try mixing tender butter lettuce, sweet green and red leaf lettuce, some crunchy iceberg, confetti light green cabbage, and grated carrot with candied pecans and a light balsamic or Italian dressing).
