Dorie Greenspan's cake couldn't be easier to prepare. It is chock-full of apples, whose flavor is heightened with vanilla and boozy, dark rum.

Boeuf Bourguignon relies on slowly building layers of flavor, starting with bacon, then searing the beef in the bacon fat, then deglazing with red wine before the final long, slow simmer to result in a rich and complex dish. It fills your kitchen with the deep, savory scents of beef, red wine, and onions. This particular recipe gives you two options to complete the cooking: either in a slow-cooker, or in the oven. The slow-cooker method will take an additional 4-6 hours, so keep this in mind!
