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 […]

I don’t mean to recycle ideas. I know what you’re thinking (if you’ve actually been reading this blog) “Hey Amber,  what is this?! The Mission Impossible franchise? You’ve already done brownies with wine in them! Do you really think chocolate cookies with wine in them are really so clever and creative? Because they’re not. For […]

WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! Ok, now that that I’ve got your attention, I need to caveat that, despite the name of this blog, these cookies are actually not really very sweet (except for the jam part of course 🙂 ). To be honest, that’s what I personally quite like about them. They’re really more like a […]

I was running out of inspiration for this week I must admit. Well, that’s not totally true, I sadly have a notebook that’s half filled with ideas and things I want to do/ make at some point. But, you know, it’s kind of the baking equivalent of looking into your overflowing closet and declaring you […]

Time this week seemed to slip away from me much faster than usual. Normally I get super excited/ pumped thinking/ pondering what I’m going to whip up each week. In fact, I’m almost more excited at the prospect of what I’m planning than the actual consuming of said dessert and/ or baked good (I said […]

Or “Here’s the Scoop: I Came Up with this on the Fry” Dear Mashup Month, Today, I elevate you to a whole new level of mashup-y-ness in addition to combining you with a soupçon of high school nostalgia. Please just accept this honour and embrace being delicious. Sincerely yours, Amber The other day, for some […]

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.
