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 […]

I’ve been having this weird hankering the past couple of months for Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal. Now I realize that for most people, they would simply go out and purchase their hearts desire, possibly consume it all in one sitting and then move on with their lives. In case you haven’t learned yet though, I’m […]

When I first stumbled upon a cookie recipe incorporating tahini, I thought to myself “whoa dude, isn’t that like, the stuff that I love to slather on falafel pitas and other such savoury delicacies?” (apparently I also decided to embrace my inner surfer while contemplating my usage of tahini. Because, you know, surfer’s are extremely […]

Unless you guessed homemade Nutella (err….homemade chocolate hazelnut spread. Can I be sued for using the word Nutella here? Let’s keep our collective fingers crossed and hope not 😉 ), at which point you would be right. I have no idea how you managed to crack my diabolically complicated cipher in that headline, but well […]

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 […]

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.
