We all know that I clearly have no illusions about this being a “healthy” blog. Despite common misconceptions, just because something is vegan does not mean it’s healthy. Now can we all please pass this message on to the blogosphere and/or the internet/world in general? To be perfectly honest, I’m sure more people would come […]

This post shouldn’t even exist. The only reason for my sharing this with you is because I was test running some ginger praline that I wanted to see about incorporating into something for a well thought out future post (still to come, but I’ll keep y’all in suspense for now). However, this praline turned out incredibly […]

As promised from weeks ago, my completely no longer relevant Valentine’s Day post! Look, just get out there and invent a time machine, and we can pretend that I was all on the ball and stuff OK? Great, I’m glad you’re willing to do me a solid on this one 😉 . These are incredibly […]

….and here they are. Just standing in a row 😉  (and if you don’t get this musical tribute at all, this is where my reference comes from. Although the song was apparently written in 1944, I first heard it in the Lion King movie, so I’m now making you have my own nostalgic trip down […]

I was originally intending to do a Valentine’s post today, but it fell off my radar completely, and though I did bake something today to fit into that theme, you’re just going to have to wait a couple of weeks to see that one (upside though? It’s not something that has to be Valentine’s themed, so […]

Am I the only person who wasn’t aware of Snickerdoodle cookies until recently(ish)? It feels like every baking blog worth its salt seems to have at least one recipe for them. “Is it more of an American thing perhaps?” I thought to myself. Then, after very minimal research, I discovered that nope, that’s not really […]

Mmmmm….remember Butterfinger chocolate bars? Perhaps you don’t even need to have a Proustian memory experience around it like I do (yes, I know, I’m letting my literary snobbery show. If it makes you feel any better though, I’m almost 100% certain that if Proust were still alive, he would most definitely not be flattered by […]

You can clearly see that I was kind of terrible on the dipping side of these truffles. Don’t worry, I’m sure that you’ll do a much better job than me. I was also visibly bad at cutting a truffle in half (see picture below). I was rushing and when I saw that I didn’t cut […]

Oatmeal raisin cookies. I love ’em. I can’t believe I don’t already have a post about these on this blog. Well…technically I can believe it. For some reason, they don’t seem to be other people’s favourite. Even if/ when people are willing to embrace a love for all things oatmeal cookie, they always want it […]

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.
