These really are heroes in a half shell (well a full shell, which is mostly because the minute any teenagers, mutant or otherwise, get their hands on these balls of deliciousness, they will choose to hoard them all and keep them safely ensconced far from prying eyes so that they may¬†consume all of them themselves.

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 ūüėČ . As a kid, lemon meringue pie was probably one […]

Mmmmm….savoury truffles. Actually I had no idea whether or not this would be a good idea, but I’ve had it on my list of things/ combinations that I’ve¬†been wanting to give a go for quite some time, and recently decided that the time is now. Why put off until tomorrow what you can do today […]

I feel guilty for this weeks pun I must admit. It’s totally just a well known and completely stolen joke. However it was so fitting I felt I had no choice. Although I suppose one could make the argument that that’s like a thief saying “That bank was just right there, it’s like they were¬†asking […]

I know, I know, you’re thinking “didn’t you just do some kind of oatmeal bar thing? Way to be original Amber. I thought I knew you, for shame. Tsk, tsk, tsk.” (And now you’re thinking “How is she such a magical, mystical mind reader??!! I better only think good thoughts about Amber, otherwise she might […]

I’ll just lay it out there for you straight up – I love oatmeal. I don’t think I’ve had a week (and even very few days if I’m being honest)¬†in which oatmeal was not included as part of my breakfast since….I don’t know, probably since I discovered that the dreaded instant oatmeal packets (of which […]

Ok, it’s been awhile (an incredibly¬†long while I know), since my first attempt at macarons. Since that time, I have made the wonderful discovery of a new, ingenious way of creating vegan meringue. The reality is, I first read/ heard about this not that long after my first macaron attempt, but for some reason, I’ve […]

….but mini cupcakes are apparently ok ūüėČ . I don’t really know what my deal is with cupcakes/ cake. It’s definitely not really my favourite dessert. However, I understand it’s portability and variability so I can see why¬†other people consider it the dessert of champions (although I’m sure that¬†actual¬†champions don’t regularly partake in dessert. Or […]

….because these babies are magic! So I guess I’m in some kind of weird nostalgic for Christmas (or at least Christmas treats!) mode. The faux peanut butter balls last week are probably what got me thinking about the other Christmas delectables that I make. This brought me to thinking about my maple cream cookies…and how […]

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.
