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 […]

So my oldest brother was having a big birthday recently. The big 4-0 (sorry Lincoln, your age has now been outed on the internet for all the world to see. I humbly apologize for completely ruining your attempts at joining “The club for super awesome cool people under the age of 40. Those that are […]

Finally, an opportunity to use that phrase without the imminent embarrassment of sounding like I’m somebody’s mom trying to sound cool and/or young and hip. Although a) I’m about 20 years too late for “What’s the Dilly Yo?” to be used by anybody even 5 seconds younger than I am and b) Who am I […]

Week two of international month brings us to what I can now with all authority say is a delicious African dessert. There are apparently many different versions/ways of making Kashata which, in my opinion, makes it a little easier to play around with and turn it into whatever strikes your fancy. Essentially it’s an African coconut and/or […]

Ah Fudge! Why do you taunt me so? You’re 100% sugar + other not so great for me things (it’s allowed to add up to more than 100% because fudge is more than 100% delicious. I don’t make the rules, I just follow ’em…sometimes 😉 ). I don’t know about you, but fudge is just […]

Time this week seemed to slip away from me much faster than usual. Normally I get super excited/ pumped thinking/ pondering what I’m going to whip up each week. In fact, I’m almost more excited at the prospect of what I’m planning than the actual consuming of said dessert and/ or baked good (I said […]

Viva Las Puffs

Or, what happens in vegan marshmallow cookies stays in….err, gets shared with everyone? 😉 Shouldn’t that really be Las Vegas’ slogan in this day and age anyway? I think we’re closer to living in a Big Brother-esque society than we’ve ever been, so keeping anything secret seems virtually impossible. Which is why I totally can’t […]

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.
