Easter Pie

We were so busy running around with my cousins that by the time Easter came, there was very little time to cook. I’d planed on making a carrot cake for Easter, but due to the time constraints, I welcomed my mom’s idea of ordering something from Spiral Diner. The apple pie we chose didn’t disappoint.

When my aunt put a can of Redi-Whip on the table, cute little Abby asked for Soyatoo instead!

Apple pie makes a dark world bright!

    The last photo is so cute. It was fun with the name of my blog. I love all your vegan blogs, and last week I came up for a name for mine and thought “this is it! I’m going vegan”. If only to be able to use the name, haha.

    Your apple pie looks sooo good, I wish I had some now 🙂

    And I’ve never tried carrot cake! never in my life! I need to change that!

  2. Vegan_Noodle says

    Spiral Diner to the rescue!!! Your cousin must have really shook that soyatoo can pretty rigorously to get all of that out!
    Nice editing on that last photo… did you do that in photoshop?

  3. Jennifer says

    Your pictures are always so cute!

    I love that your cousins opted for Soyatoo. I hope to see that in my neck of the woods at some point!

  4. Bianca says

    So I’m guessing Spiral Diner is a place that has a vegan bakery. That sounds awesome. I wish I could get vegan apple pie here!

  5. Romina says

    Apple pie!! Yum!! =) I don’t remember the lat time I had any, so I might have to come and share some of yours, hehe.

    I love your last pic.

  6. Jenny says

    Yum Yum Yum! I can’t wait to try Spiral Diner when I am visiting Texas! (Less than 2 weeks, hooray!)

    Love the last picture, that looked cool!

  7. Ricki says

    The pie looks yummy–seems you’ve had more luck with Soyatoo than I did (it wouldn’t work for me–had to throw out the whole can!). And that last photo–absolutely lovely. 🙂

  8. Vegan Stiletto says

    I wish I could find soy whipped cream in Sydney! and while I’m at it I would also like to find soy natural yoghurt!

    Looks like lots of fun was had by your family over Easter! 🙂

  9. Astra Libris says

    Mmmm, I quite agree with you about apple pie… Yum! Especially with all that gorgeous soyatoo on top… Mmmmm…

  10. Cherry says

    Do you go to Spiral Diner often? I’ve really wanted to go there for the longest time, but I live in Austin and we never go up to the Dallas/Fort Worth area. That pie sure looks delicious!

  11. Jackie says

    What a wonderful Easter you had. Great photos great food 🙂

    Thanks for comment. Of course you may add me, I added you a couple of months back as I love your blog.

  12. russ says

    haha i’ll definitely put your brocolli milkshake on my list of things to try at least once!
    I’d love to hear more about your stay in japan! Was that in your pre-veg days? You’ll have to tell me all about it one day!

  13. Mihl says

    Apple pie and soyatoo. Sounds perfect. I do understand Charly. Whenever I have some soyatoo at home I eat a lot of it.

  14. Rural Vegan says

    Ha ha ha, I love the giant mound of Soyatoo! That’s exactly how Soyatoo should be eaten, IMO, a giant mound of it on top of a gorgeous apple pie – perfect!

  15. Cindy says

    My daughter is coming to visit and we are going to try the Spiral Diner. Can’t wait! Did you see them on Good Moroning Texas?

  16. Ruby Red Vegan says

    Abby and Charlie are smart ones. You taught them well!

    I want some apple pie now.

    And I totally thought of you today when I went out for an Ethiopian lunch today. Ethiopian is now officially my all-time favorite type of food!

  17. Jill says

    How funny! I was just in Dallas for Easter weekend, and took the opportunity to go to Spiral Diner for the first time! I half wondered if I might spot you there, since I remembered you were from Dallas. I love your blog. It’s always so fun!

  18. ChocolateCoveredVegan says

    Thanks, everyone. As usual, your sweet comments are very, very much appreciated.

    Cindy– No, I didn’t see them on Good Morning America. That’s exciting that GMA featured a vegan restaurant! Oh, and let me know how your daughter likes Spiral! My cousins loved it (I’ll post pictures soon, I hope!).

    Robin– you are so sweet. Thank you!

    Jill– LOL my mom actually said to me, “Maybe someone will recognize you!” When did you go to Spiral? I was there on Saturday. Oh, but I was at the one in Ft. Worth, so never mind. Plus, if we had been there at the same time, you DEFINITELY wouldn’t have missed me, because my little cousins were throwing broccoli at each other! Yikes!

  19. mustardseed says

    I WANT THAT APPLE PIE!! How’s the crust like? I like shortbread crusts, the kind that just crumbles like a huge fat butter cookie in my mouth.

    I need the recipe!!!
