Being the conscientious person that I am, I opted to test these babies with both peanut butter and sunflower seed butter for a nut free option. I often consider doing this, but love peanut butter so much that unless I’m taking them to a peanut allergy location, I often don’t “risk” it, worrying that I […]

….or “After I Got Out From Behind Bars, I Was “Bour-Born” Again” 😉 I was so distraught and melancholy at the conclusion of Canada’s 150th dessert month, that there was only one way to drown my sorrows. You guessed it. Bourbon. But how to consume it midday (or early morning for that matter – I […]

Week two!! I know, you’re super excited, I can feel it from here. The air is practically palpable with your barely contained exuberance. Just breathe, we still have two more weeks after this one, so reserve at least some of your enthusiasm for future posts 😉 . I know I said last week that I […]

This is a trend that I’m so irked about that it doesn’t even deserve a pun. THAT’S how bad it is!!!  ….OK, who am I kidding, I love puns too much, so I’ll still give it a go. How about “Who Peed In Your (Uni)Corn Flakes?”? No? Not a fan? Well now you know how […]

Let me just get right to it this week, because I can’t even begin to describe how in love with this brittle I am. In one of my many hours of online recipe stalking, I stumbled across a bunch of different sites that had recipes for quinoa brittle (the photos actually all look disturbingly like […]

Ok, that pun’s a bit of a stretch, but what can you do? Nothing, that’s what. The other possibilities were really all so, so much worse. For example: It’s A Rice Day For A White Wedding (shudder, so, so bad, and it doesn’t even incorporate the mint element) It May Be A Cin(namint), But I’m […]

Themes, love ’em or hate ’em, they’re here to stay (because I love ’em and since I’m in control here, you’ll just have to go with the flow on this one 😉 ). One thing I’ve kept meaning to get back to because I love how much it allows me to let my creativity flag […]

Last weekend, Kevin and I hosted a little St. Patrick’s day shindig, and I of course wanted to bake something. I also really wanted that something to be at least somewhat thematic. Another consideration? I finally ordered myself some vegan white chocolate chips. Now, I wish that this was something I could just pick up […]

When I stumbled across a recipe for what was labelled “Ginger Crunch” cookies/ slices, I was immediately intrigued and merrily skipped through the blog post in which it appeared until I got to the recipe and was eagerly looking for the “crunch” element. I was incredibly disappointed. It was basically just a shortbread cookie topped with […]

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.
