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 […]

In case the title wasn’t a literal dead giveaway, this week we enter the realm of “la Belle Province”. There were so, so many options of what I  could have made to represent Québec (sugar pie, bûche de Noël – ok, that one would’ve been a weird choice given it’s summer, but still an option […]

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 […]

You guessed it – it’s another themed month! (cue the fireworks and crazy conga line dancers of joy): That’s right Simpsons – you win friends with delicious, delicious desserts (unless you’ve poisoned said desserts, at which point, you win a life sentence in jail. And since you clearly can’t be trusted with desserts, you also […]

What is a person to do when they make a recipe and realize they ended up with way way too much leftover icing? My usual go-to method in this situation is to put it in my coffee for a week or so until it’s used up (makes for some surprisingly delicious and strange flavour combinations, […]

So I came across the idea for these from one of the random cooking / baking shows that I’m obsessed with (do I remember which one? Of course not 🙁 I have a sneaking suspicion that it was from the couple of episodes of “The Great Australian Bake Off” that I watched after my sadness […]

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 […]

This is a trend that I’m so irked about that it doesn’t even deserve a pun. THAT’S how bad it is!!!  ….OK, who am I kidding, I love puns too much, so I’ll still give it a go. How about “Who Peed In Your (Uni)Corn Flakes?”? No? Not a fan? Well now you know how […]

Have you been thinking to yourself recently “I just don’t have enough peanut butter in my life?” I mean sure, you can put it on toast, and I’m sure you’ve consumed the odd peanut butter ball, but have you found yourself in the position of thinking “Yeah, that’s enough peanut butter”? Because it never is […]

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.
