Spring!!! There was a small part of me that was tempted to leave the entire blog post at that, and then maybe just have a picture of me running outside with glee and joy (we can go outside again!), but fear not dear reader, I will still regale you with my usual weekly nonsense (but […]

Cherry-ots of Fire

March 08 , 2015 by Amber Trudeau - in Cookies

Ah, maraschino cherries. They belong right up there with Worcestershire sauce as one of those words that always make me sound like I’ve just come from having my mouth frozen at the dentist when I try and say them. Is it wrong that there are some things I don’t like cooking/baking with purely for the […]

I warned you didn’t I? As promised, here is my homage to St.Raphael (aka the real St Valentine). Ok, I’ll be honest and call it what it really is, a need to use up the way too many dried cherries and shredded coconut that I have kicking around the house. But shhhh….it’ll be our little secret […]

A couple of weeks ago I received another challenge request to make macarons. To which I responded out loud to an empty room “Hell yeah!” (well…one of my cats was sitting/sleeping in the room, and though I may have startled her slightly with my exuberance, I also think I detected a gleam of excitement in […]

Mmmm…peanut butter. Is there really any food that’s more versatile or more delicious? It’s perfectly at home in both sweet and savoury applications. It’s uses know no bounds. I challenge you to come up with a peanut butter combination that I would be unwilling to eat (as long as it’s still vegan of course 😉 […]

….Based on this photo, I apparently can’t 🙁 I thought about not posting this one at all because they didn’t turn out quite the way I had envisioned them, but in the interest of full disclosure, I’ve decided I should post the not-as-successful attempts as well. About a week ago, I received my first submitted-through-the-website challenge […]

Although our freezer isn’t yet completely devoid of Christmas cookies, I couldn’t wait any longer to make something. I’ve had so many ideas rattling around in my brain that if I didn’t do something soon, some of them would probably have been lost to time completely and never been made 🙁 They never would’ve felt the […]

I bring you both the legend, and a photo of the cookies in their “real-life” ready-to-be-transported form. I figured I would add multiple visuals of this eye “candy” for your drooling pleasure 🙂 (yes! a terrible pun that works on both levels!) Here’s the sneak preview of the Christmas cookie offerings for 2014 – I can’t […]

Kevin randomly said to me the other day that one of his favourite cookies growing up was the fig newton. First of all, I called bulls*** on that assertion straight to his face because I know him well enough to know, that if it doesn’t have chocolate or peanut butter (or even better, some combination […]

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.
