  …or, for those more musically inclined, we have the alternate puny title of “♪ How Do You Like Me? How Do You Like Me? S’More, S’More, S’More ♪” I mean…S’Mores. Need I say s’more here? I don’t know about you guys, but I am full-on ready to embrace the end of the horrible season […]

Chocolate chip cookies. They’re a classic. A tried and true crowd pleaser that seemingly everyone can agree on. Delicious, chocolaty, chewy and….boring. I mean don’t get me wrong, I’m as big a fan of this staple as the next guy or gal, but that’s the problem with them isn’t it? Do you really want to […]

I am super in love with these. I know you probably have just stopped believing me on that front by now because I say it so often it’s lost all meaning. However, I don’t understand what’s not to like here. This week I’m actually incorporating two different condiments. Double the chance for disaster? Of course. But, despite […]

Ok, so being the big liar that I am, I’m opting to do a “real” (aka what I’d actually intended to post last week) New Year’s post. It’s a week late technically, but if you really think about, today is actually my first post of 2018 so it’s really my first post of the New Year, so […]

A Boy Named Tiramisu

December 31 , 2017 by Amber Trudeau - in Bars, Candy

I mean, who wouldn’t want that for a name? Oh Johnny Cash, things could’ve been so different for your titular song character if only a “Tira-” had been added to his name. There’s a reason people always nickname their loved ones after delicious treats (Sweetie Pie, Sugar, Honey, Babe….uh…that last one might mean your loved one […]

With the release of the most recent Star Wars movie, I thought I’d pay hômage to the overall cannon of celestial movies and crank out this epic, Russian-doll style peanut butter ball. That’s right people, this is a peanut butter ball, inside of a peanut butter ball, inside of another peanut butter ball, and all surrounded […]

Yeah!!! New themed month. You know you’re excited, stop trying to act like you’re too cool to express emotions (unless you’re Data of course, at which point, I suppose I could let it slide. Yes, it’s true, aren’t you proud of me Kevin? I made a Star Trek reference. I never thought I’d see the day […]

Remember the Fresh Prince of Bel Air? I still know all the words to the theme song. Some might be embarrassed about that, but I wear it like a badge of pride. Remember the episode where they changed to a new Aunt Viv? I loved that they actually addressed the fact that she was new: […]

Alternatively I had thought about making the title for this post (said as if you were about to sneeze) “Ca-shew! Ca-shew! Ca-shEEEEWWWWWWW!!!”. However, this would’ve been a reference to a certain family member who totally sneezes like this (although making the more traditional “Achoo” sound. They might be nuts, but they’re not that nuts 😉 […]

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.
