A pun by any other name would….well probably be better than this one, so there’s that. This week, I’m going to bring you what I’m going to call the “real estate agent” version of dessert bait and switch (except in a good way I promise! 🙂 ). Because I know what you’re thinking…”Amber, do you […]

It’s the final week! I know, I’m sad too. But don’t let it get you down. If you’re feeling blue, this recipe will take those blues and turn them into berries. Delicious delicious, east-coasty berries. This week, in an hômage to the maritime provinces, I bring you the blueberry grunt. I had technically never hear […]

Week two!! I know, you’re super excited, I can feel it from here. The air is practically palpable with your barely contained exuberance. Just breathe, we still have two more weeks after this one, so reserve at least some of your enthusiasm for future posts 😉 . I know I said last week that I […]

Birthdays!!! Mother’s Day!!! So many things to celebrate all at once. And though this may seem like a repeat from my post of the peanut butter ball mini cake from a couple of weeks ago, what better way to celebrate then overdosing on peanutty-goodness? It was Kevin’s birthday recently, and this year it was decided that […]

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 […]

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.
