Week 2! I know, you were¬†totally fooled by this one right? I mean, it’s uncanny how much this looks like Buffalo wings and celery with blue cheese dip. Right? RIGHT???!!!! (*Amber makes crazy eyes*). Whatever, I think they’re still cute, and they are actually tasty to boot (and if for some reason you misread that […]

Themes, love ’em or hate ’em, they’re here to stay (because I love ’em and since I’m in control here, you’ll just have to go with the flow on this one ūüėČ ). One thing I’ve kept meaning to get back to because I love how much it allows me to let my creativity flag […]

When I stumbled across a recipe for what was labelled “Ginger Crunch” cookies/ slices, I was immediately intrigued and merrily skipped through the blog post in which it appeared¬†until I got to the recipe and was eagerly looking for the “crunch” element. I was incredibly disappointed. It was basically just a shortbread cookie topped with […]

We all know that I clearly have no illusions about this being a “healthy” blog. Despite common misconceptions, just because something is vegan does not mean it’s healthy. Now can we all please pass this message on to the blogosphere and/or the internet/world in general? To be perfectly honest, I’m sure more people would come […]

This post shouldn’t even exist. The only reason for my sharing this with you is because I was test running some ginger praline that I wanted to see about incorporating into something for a well thought out¬†future post (still to come, but I’ll keep y’all in suspense for now). However, this praline turned out incredibly […]

I was originally intending to do a Valentine’s post today, but it fell off my radar completely, and though I did bake something today to fit into that theme, you’re just going to have to wait a couple of weeks to see that one (upside though? It’s not something that¬†has to be Valentine’s themed, so […]

Mmmmm….remember Butterfinger chocolate bars? Perhaps you don’t even need to have a Proustian memory experience around it like I do (yes, I know, I’m letting my literary snobbery show. If it makes you feel any better though, I’m almost 100% certain that if Proust were still alive, he would most definitely not be flattered by […]

You can clearly see that I was kind of terrible on the dipping side of these truffles. Don’t worry, I’m sure that you’ll do a much better job than me. I was also visibly bad at cutting a truffle in half (see picture below). I was rushing and when I saw that I didn’t cut […]

So I actually made these quite a while ago, back when, if you remember, I had an insane overabundance of apples to get through. After a couple of weeks, realizing the apples in my fridge were still taking up an inordinately large percentage of some much needed chill factor real estate, I started trying to […]

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.
