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

May 03 , 2015 by Amber Trudeau - in Candy, Cookies

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 […]

Cottage season is almost upon us, and I’ve finally had it with my inability to toast marshmallows over the fire anymore 🙁 . When Kevin and I first bought our tiny cabin in the woods in 2011, roasting things over a roaring flame was, to me, by far the best part. So much so that […]

Even I’m saying “groan” about that title, I’m just off my game in the pun department this week. Feel free to offer your own (presumably much better) hazelnut and/or date related puns in the comments below 🙂 . These little doozies have no added sugar if you care about such things. Which of course is not […]

Unless you’re crying tears of joy of course (because I must admit that I did get a bit misty eyed with pride when I finished making these and set them free to go forth and make their way in the world). Is anyone else as huge a fan of House of Cards as I am? […]

I know what you’re thinking, “Amber, you just did peanut butter last week, are you already so out of ideas that you can’t do something new?” Now on the one hand you would be right, but on the other hand, I love, love, love (did I mention LOVE???) peanut butter, so you’re just going 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.
