These really are heroes in a half shell (well a full shell, which is mostly because the minute any teenagers, mutant or otherwise, get their hands on these balls of deliciousness, they will choose to hoard them all and keep them safely ensconced far from prying eyes so that they may consume all of them themselves. […]

Mmmmm….savoury truffles. Actually I had no idea whether or not this would be a good idea, but I’ve had it on my list of things/ combinations that I’ve been wanting to give a go for quite some time, and recently decided that the time is now. Why put off until tomorrow what you can do today […]

I feel guilty for this weeks pun I must admit. It’s totally just a well known and completely stolen joke. However it was so fitting I felt I had no choice. Although I suppose one could make the argument that that’s like a thief saying “That bank was just right there, it’s like they were asking […]

I really made that sound appetizing didn’t I? 😉 It’s truly a gift, please, hold your applause. So, as I’ve mentioned many a time, I’m a huge peanut butter lover. It’s no surprise then that peanut butter balls are a staple during Christmas baking season. Once Christmas is over however, the poor delicately delicious peanut […]

I don’t like to go down without a fight, so this week I bring you Christmas fudge, take two! I know they say it’s the third time that’s a charm, but the second time will have to do in this particular case because I don’t think I have it in me to make fudge three […]

So, first completely new Christmas thing for this year! (Fire and Ice Patties notwithstanding because they were really just an extension of something I always make). I was extremely excited about this, mostly because, unlike my usual system, I did absolutely no research into these. I said to myself “self” (because isn’t that how everyone […]

Alright, here’s the real Halloween post (not like that fake-out post from last week 😉 ). This week I bring you a veritable smorgasbord of super fast/easy Halloween desserts of both the healthy (booo!!!) and unhealthy (yeah!!!!) variety. So, you know, be afraid, be very afraid…or whatever. Complete side note here, but don’t you love how […]

It’s that time of year again! Aren’t you excited? Sleigh bells ringing, snow falling, sugarplums (what the heck are sugar plums anyway, and why all the dancing?), peace and goodwill toward all etc. etc. (You thought I was going to say it’s Halloween time didn’t you? For the rest of the world it is, but […]

I apologize if you were shocked/appalled/outraged at this headline, but it was way too awesome for me not to use (although I’m obviously biased 😉 ). I suppose I should’ve tried to be a bit more equal opportunity/ gender equality about it though, I shouldn’t just assume that my dessert was female. Here’s my manly version […]

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.
