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 […]

I’m sorry, I just can’t help myself, I love a good theme. Plus, this is a concept I’ve been wanting to do since before I even had a blog, so now that I have a captive (in my mind at least 😉 ) audience, and all the Christmas baking hullabaloo has come to its sad […]

Pie crust topped apple cider! What is happening here???!!! Too much crazyness!!! Is it pie? Is it cider? As long as you don’t decide to do a word-merge in which you dub it Spider, we’re all good here 😉 (calling it apple pie-der however is perfectly acceptable). I mean, ok, I admit that this might […]

…a deep vat of icing that is. What would Christmas be without a delicate dusting of snow all over everything?  Now outside, this may not be the greatest thing, what with its horrible associations with slush, ice, general freezing coldness and terrible traffic. There’s a good reason why winter is iconically represented by an old […]

Alright, here’s the real Halloween post (not like that fake-out post from last week 😉 ). This week I bring you a veritable smorgasbord of super fast/easy Halloween desserts of both the healthy (booo!!!) and unhealthy (yeah!!!!) variety. So, you know, be afraid, be very afraid…or whatever. Complete side note here, but don’t you love how […]

Ok, the headline here might be a bit confusing. You’re excused for thinking I’m doing something Spanish (or something nonsensical in general since none of those words are even particularly Spanish. This heading could also be mistaken for the sound I make when unpleasantly roused from sleep on a cold winter morning).  If you had […]

Kevin was participating in a conference recently and he asked me if I wouldn’t mind baking a cookie or snack for him for the event as a way to get more people to his booth. If you live in the world and are human, you will likely have noticed that people don’t care what you’re selling, […]

They say everything’s bigger in Texas, but just because you may in theory want to stuff your face full of a massive, Texas-sized piece of chocolaty decadence, doesn’t mean you always should. Besides, I’m all about the portability of desserts wherever possible (which mostly relates back to the fact that if I make a cake the […]

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.
