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 […]

The final week of single serve! I don’t know what it is about the final week of one of my nonsensical themed months, but they always make me a bit sad 🙁 . It’s amazing how attached one can get to a ridiculous gimmick in such a short span of time. There is no time […]

At least, that’s what I hear, so if you make this you’ll be totally safe to stand out in the middle of an epic thunderstorm with a bowl of deliciousness for protection. Who knew you were so versatile little grain of many colours? (is that a musical in the making or is it just me? […]

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: […]

Ok, that pun’s a bit of a stretch, but what can you do? Nothing, that’s what. The other possibilities were really all so, so much worse. For example: It’s A Rice Day For A White Wedding (shudder, so, so bad, and it doesn’t even incorporate the mint element) It May Be A Cin(namint), But I’m […]

Themes, love ’em or hate ’em, they’re here to stay (because I love ’em and since I’m in control here, you’ll just have to go with the flow on this one 😉 ). One thing I’ve kept meaning to get back to because I love how much it allows me to let my creativity flag […]

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 […]

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 […]

So I actually made these quite a while ago, back when, if you remember, I had an insane overabundance of apples to get through. After a couple of weeks, realizing the apples in my fridge were still taking up an inordinately large percentage of some much needed chill factor real estate, I started trying to […]

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.
