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 […]

Ok, it’s been awhile (an incredibly long while I know), since my first attempt at macarons. Since that time, I have made the wonderful discovery of a new, ingenious way of creating vegan meringue. The reality is, I first read/ heard about this not that long after my first macaron attempt, but for some reason, I’ve […]

So it’s kind of a sad day, reaching the end of chocolate chip cookie month. Also sad because I don’t really feel like I found “the perfect chocolate chip cookie.” This month made me realize that not everyone has the same opinion on what constitutes the perfect chocolate studded morsel of deliciousness. For instance, Kevin seemed […]

Alright, let’s do this thing! These cookies are now in their element. Their final element that is 😉 . Fat, the final frontier! The thing that gives cookies their luscious taste and texture. The thing that the band Queen knew all too well helped to make the rockin’ world go ’round. Anyone who ever got on […]

SUGAR!!!!!!!!!!!! Can you tell I’ve maybe had a little too much? 😉 It’s not my fault though, I’m suffering for the sake of science. Now that I’ve moved on to week two of this chocolate chip cookie quest, I’ve started wondering whether or not this was such a great idea. Is it possible to get […]

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.
