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. […]

Pa Rum Pa Pum Pum Balls

FYI – the next month’s worth of posts will be Christmas related so rev your engines and hold onto your….reindeer…or…whatever. I’m also warning you in advance that these Christmas puns are particularly terrible and not in a good way, so I’m sorry for that in advance 🙂 Now, on with the post! Can you believe […]

…but not for long because then he ate it 😉 . In case you haven’t managed to guess by the title, this post is somewhat Elvis based. I will freely admit that these delicious bites required a couple of incarnations both with their own merits, so I’ll give you both possibilities below since they’re both […]

So I bet you’re thinking that you didn’t read that title correctly, am I right? Or else you’re thinking “but Amber, I thought this was a baking blog? What up with the dinner/ lunch item (or cold for breakfast. Mmmmmmm……) that is the Margherita pizza?” Well worry not fair reader. you are neither going crazy […]

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.
