Viva Las Puffs

May 03 , 2015 by Amber Trudeau - in Candy, Cookies

Or, what happens in vegan marshmallow cookies stays in….err, gets shared with everyone? 😉 Shouldn’t that really be Las Vegas’ slogan in this day and age anyway? I think we’re closer to living in a Big Brother-esque society than we’ve ever been, so keeping anything secret seems virtually impossible. Which is why I totally can’t […]

Cottage season is almost upon us, and I’ve finally had it with my inability to toast marshmallows over the fire anymore 🙁 . When Kevin and I first bought our tiny cabin in the woods in 2011, roasting things over a roaring flame was, to me, by far the best part. So much so that […]

Even I’m saying “groan” about that title, I’m just off my game in the pun department this week. Feel free to offer your own (presumably much better) hazelnut and/or date related puns in the comments below 🙂 . These little doozies have no added sugar if you care about such things. Which of course is not […]

Spring!!! There was a small part of me that was tempted to leave the entire blog post at that, and then maybe just have a picture of me running outside with glee and joy (we can go outside again!), but fear not dear reader, I will still regale you with my usual weekly nonsense (but […]

Le sigh. I’m in need of better puns, I’ve most definitely gotten lazy of late. Anyhow, obviously I wanted to make something in honour of Easter. Of course, as per my usual inability to be in-season and with it (which takes me back to my not-at-all-cool high school days. Plaid shirts and crop tops anyone?), […]

As the ides of March (aka March 15th) flew past this month, it took me back to my grade nine high school Latin class with the renowned Mr.Keys. Now there was a man with a true mastery of the pun. He could take the lowliest of puns/jokes and spin them out into epic tales that spanned a ridiculous […]

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 […]

But I’m a drunken rebel and so I did all kinds of verboten things with this recipe 🙂 A couple of months ago my friend Rebecca gave me the challenge of making vegan trifle. I said “sure, but those bowls are so big, and it’s not really the kind of thing that’s that portable, so […]

Cherry-ots of Fire

March 08 , 2015 by Amber Trudeau - in Cookies

Ah, maraschino cherries. They belong right up there with Worcestershire sauce as one of those words that always make me sound like I’ve just come from having my mouth frozen at the dentist when I try and say them. Is it wrong that there are some things I don’t like cooking/baking with purely for the […]

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.
