I totally haven’t even read this book, and its topic seems a little too serious-sauce for my usual attempts at whimsy, but I loved how much the name fit, so deal with it 😉  (my alternative name was “Magic (Bar) Mike” Thoughts? Feel free to vote on a preference, being sure to indicate how awesome […]

Because I love oatmeal in all of it’s various forms (well…I’m maybe not so big a fan of instant oatmeal I’ll admit. But I mean seriously people? Was this really a product that needed to get more convenient? I mean, you can cook quick oats in the microwave in like 2 minutes, and put on […]

Alternatively I had thought about making the title for this post (said as if you were about to sneeze) “Ca-shew! Ca-shew! Ca-shEEEEWWWWWWW!!!”. However, this would’ve been a reference to a certain family member who totally sneezes like this (although making the more traditional “Achoo” sound. They might be nuts, but they’re not that nuts 😉 […]

…No, I’m not asking about your dating type (or personal description…I don’t know how you word your online dating profile! I will freely admit to knowing absolutely nothing about online dating and what goes on there. I luckily found the yin to my yang (that sounded weirdly dirty, but you know what I’m saying) before […]

Being the conscientious person that I am, I opted to test these babies with both peanut butter and sunflower seed butter for a nut free option. I often consider doing this, but love peanut butter so much that unless I’m taking them to a peanut allergy location, I often don’t “risk” it, worrying that I […]

….or “After I Got Out From Behind Bars, I Was “Bour-Born” Again” 😉 I was so distraught and melancholy at the conclusion of Canada’s 150th dessert month, that there was only one way to drown my sorrows. You guessed it. Bourbon. But how to consume it midday (or early morning for that matter – I […]

You guessed it – it’s another themed month! (cue the fireworks and crazy conga line dancers of joy): That’s right Simpsons – you win friends with delicious, delicious desserts (unless you’ve poisoned said desserts, at which point, you win a life sentence in jail. And since you clearly can’t be trusted with desserts, you also […]

Let me just get right to it this week, because I can’t even begin to describe how in love with this brittle I am. In one of my many hours of online recipe stalking, I stumbled across a bunch of different sites that had recipes for quinoa brittle (the photos actually all look disturbingly like […]

Ok, that pun’s a bit of a stretch, but what can you do? Nothing, that’s what. The other possibilities were really all so, so much worse. For example: It’s A Rice Day For A White Wedding (shudder, so, so bad, and it doesn’t even incorporate the mint element) It May Be A Cin(namint), But I’m […]

About Amber

Amber Profile

Hi, I'm Amber Trudeau.  I bake.... a lot.

I'm also vegan, and found that whenever I went out to a restaurant my dessert choices were limited to sorbet, sorbet, and sorbet.  So I started making my own desserts. I wanted them to taste good though - so my ultimatum was to make delicious desserts that also happen to be dairy-free and egg-free. Every week or so, I challenge myself to try something new.  To recreate some kind of traditional dessert that tastes amazing without using animal products.
