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 😉 . 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 […]

I really made that sound appetizing didn’t I? 😉 It’s truly a gift, please, hold your applause. So, as I’ve mentioned many a time, I’m a huge peanut butter lover. It’s no surprise then that peanut butter balls are a staple during Christmas baking season. Once Christmas is over however, the poor delicately delicious peanut […]

There was no way that I wanted to have this post be about cookies. We’re obviously all looking for a slight change of pace this week after a full month of those deliciously chocolate studded, sugar filled circles of addiction (ummm…does it show that cookies are actually my kyptonite, so I’m totally not sick of them? I figured […]

So it’s kind of a sad day, reaching the end of chocolate chip cookie month. Also sad because I don’t really feel like I found “the perfect chocolate chip cookie.” This month made me realize that not everyone has the same opinion on what constitutes the perfect chocolate studded morsel of deliciousness. For instance, Kevin seemed […]

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 […]

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.
