How easy can it be to become ‘Cruelty Free’ and still love every bite of what you eat?  Pretty darn easy once you get the basics down.  The basics are especially easy now with help from Kathy Hester and her newest book: The Easy Vegan Cookbook  The first basic I absolutely fell in love with….I’ve made this one so many times this fall that I’ve actually memorized Kathy’s recipe for it…was her super simple, super moist and delicious Applesauce Spice Cake.  Oh my.  This one is so easy and so versatile, you’ll love having this basic, easy recipe in your head too.  Add in’s are perfect so adjust away to your own fruits and nut likes.  But keep this classic recipe base just as Kathy has created it for maximum spice tastes.
