Oatmeal raisin cookies. I love ’em. I can’t believe I don’t already have a post about these on this blog. Well…technically I can believe it. For some reason, they don’t seem to be other people’s favourite. Even if/ when people are willing to embrace a love for all things oatmeal cookie, they always want it […]

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 […]

See? What did I tell you? These Christmas puns are terrible 🙁 Now if I wasn’t going for a Christmas theme, I easily could’ve used something like “Pinwheels Keep on Turnin’, Cranberries Keep On Burnin’ ” , or possibly “Pinwheels of Fortune”. Instead though, we’re stuck with this. Look, we’re all suffering here, but let’s just […]

That title is gross and creepy, but hey – “♪C’est l’Halloween, c’est l’Halloween hey!♪” (French immersion anyone? Oh that takes me back. Here’s a link to the full lyrics in case you too are feeling childhood elementary school nostalgia like I am 🙂 – video with lyrics or if you’re feeling a bit lazier and just […]

Anyone who did not get the Die Hard movie reference, I oh-so-politely demand that you watch this video asap (even better of course would be to watch the movie. Or movies? Farrah – remember our Die Hard Trilogy fest? (because it was still just a trilogy at the time….as it maybe should’ve remained in my humble […]

Farewell Olympics 2016 – I will freely admit that I did not watch even one single event, but I’m sure you were great. Uh, go Canada??!!! (How did we do anyway? Good? ….ok, I just looked it up because I was super embarrassed about my complete lack of enthusiasm and/ or knowledge on the Olympic […]

Yeah! A reason to use the madeleines tin I bought last year! I was really into making them when I first bought it (I think in the first week I owned it, I made madeleines like four times). Then I basically forgot about it, and have now opted to allow it a resurgence so that […]

In my amazing mind reading abilities way, I can tell that you’re thinking “Amber, we’ve seen macrons before on this very blog. In fact, we’ve seen them twice! Way to repeat – I think you should rename your blog “one trick pony”” and then you make a dismissive hand gesture in my general direction. First […]

We Canadians may be known for our politeness and overly apologetic natures, but all of that’s about to change (err…sorry 😉 ) with these cookies. I’d happily knock over my own grandmother (à la George Costanza) for one of these morsels of creamy strawberry maple-y goodness. I mean, I’m a bit biased in that I […]

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.
