It’s the final week! I can’t believe it, April went by so fast. So many more things I would’ve made, but I should maybe save some things so that I can possibly do this again next year since I enjoyed myself so much (hopefully I wasn’t the only one?). And if I can’t wait quite that […]

Well, if you’re me, you might also end up eating a bunch of your freely acquired and provided-by-life lemons straight up, but if you have a lot of them, then I suppose one could also work them into a pie, or a tart…or something 😉 . As a kid, lemon meringue pie was probably one […]

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 […]

I know, I know, I’m embarrassed too. I’ve clearly totally given in to the insanity that is pumpkin spice season (also, when did fall get renamed “Pumpkin Spice Season”? We should consider renaming all seasons based on their quintessential consumer product: Winter aka “Santa/ Peppermint Lobby” (take your pick) Season Spring aka “Roll-Up the Rim” […]

Knowing that strawberry season is “basil”-ly at an end causes unknown quantities of tears and sadness for me. Maybe the rest of you are all just like “you’ve eaten one strawberry, you’ve eaten them all” or “Bah! They’ll be back again next year, stop your whining!” But will they be back? Will they!!!?? Ok, they probably […]

However, I will say that, as with a lot of things I’m not the biggest fan of, the games can definitely be a jumping off point to creative genius in the kitchen. On that note, I will now welcome you all to another themed month born out of the irritation that is the Pan Am […]

I know, I know, now you think you’ve accidentally stumbled upon the complete opposite of a vegan dessert blog. Since when does avian murder find its place in this sweet cruelty-free world? I’ll break it down for you. Believe it or not, “killing two birds with one stone” is actually a supposedly well-known expression meaning […]

I would like to officially invite you all to Dessert Mashup Month! (or, in case you only know it by it’s other more “traditional” name,…May 😉 ). What is Dessert Mashup Month you ask? Well in case my photographic (in)abilities haven’t given you a hint, it’s where we over here at Sweet Ultimatums combine two, two, […]

Pecan Pi R squared

March 22 , 2015 by Amber Trudeau - in Pie

Happy (belated) Pi Day! Yes, yes, I know I’m way past the date at this point, but what can I say? For me, every day is a reason to celebrate with pie, so it’s way too easy for March 14th to slip by me unnoticed. Also, there’s 3 big days in a row, so it’s hard […]

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.
