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 […]

We made it through another year! As a side note, I’ve now officially passed the one year mark of bloggerdom! (is that a thing? Sure it is 😉 ). To be perfectly honest, I did not think I had it in me to post weekly for a month let alone a whole year, so huzzah […]

Alright, we’ve reached the final beverages post for the month! For those of you who are anti liquid-ites, you’re terrible suffering will shortly come to an end. Now I can’t believe the first three posts were alcohol free either, but obviously at least one of these would be required to include some sort of intoxicating substance […]

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 never get sick of gingerbread, I truly wish it weren’t considered a seasonal thing (gingerbread is my pumpkin spice if you know what I’m saying). Finding ways to work those warm and delicious flavours into all possible things never gets old or boring. The marriage of gingerbread and hot chocolate therefore just seemed meant […]

…or embrace this opportunity to become a “Slemp Dog Millionaire” 😉 . Despite the winky face and implied alcoholic imbibingness of the start of what I’m deeming beverage month, this first offering is actually a traditional Dutch children’s drink for St. Nicholas Day (which I felt was very fitting since Dec 6 actually is St.Nicholas Day, how […]

…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 […]

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.
