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 […]

Alright, technically I know that Christmas is over now, but I still had this one recipe kicking about, so be like me and just embrace the season for a little bit longer (I mean technically it’s still considered Christmas break right? Right???? Exactly). Now I’ll be one of the first to admit that these little coconutty […]

I thought that these whoopie pies looked the most visually festive so what better cookie to post for Christmas day? I know, I can’t believe I’m still on top of this and am actually posting on Christmas day either. Go me! #humblebrag (side note (warning!! loooonnnnggg side note 😉 ), I have no idea why I […]

Oh Come All Ye Fudgeful

The third time really was a charm with these. I almost quit after my first two attempts (of which there is no photographic evidence as I don’t think anyone needs to see my epic fails. I’m still telling you about it, but I have to draw the line somewhere 😉 Ok, that’s not even true really. […]

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.
