See? Didn’t I promise you no more peanut butter? (well…not no more ever, just not this week. Don’t be crazy 😉 ). I’m a super fan of citrus, so I might be a little biased here (I eat straight lemons (although maybe not? They don’t share their sexuality with me before I devour them 😉 ) […]

A pun by any other name would….well probably be better than this one, so there’s that. This week, I’m going to bring you what I’m going to call the “real estate agent” version of dessert bait and switch (except in a good way I promise! 🙂 ). Because I know what you’re thinking…”Amber, do you […]

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 […]

Yeah! A reason to use the madeleines tin I bought last year! I was really into making them when I first bought it (I think in the first week I owned it, I made madeleines like four times). Then I basically forgot about it, and have now opted to allow it a resurgence so that […]

In my amazing mind reading abilities way, I can tell that you’re thinking “Amber, we’ve seen macrons before on this very blog. In fact, we’ve seen them twice! Way to repeat – I think you should rename your blog “one trick pony”” and then you make a dismissive hand gesture in my general direction. First […]

Candy is not often my thing. Well…that’s a bit of lie. I’m totally fine with candy. It’s sugary, it’s delicious, but for some reason, it’s pretty rare for it to not turn into a big huge mess that either just tastes so-so, or needs to be dumped entirely. Or even worse, needs to be soaked […]

Ok, it’s been awhile (an incredibly long while I know), since my first attempt at macarons. Since that time, I have made the wonderful discovery of a new, ingenious way of creating vegan meringue. The reality is, I first read/ heard about this not that long after my first macaron attempt, but for some reason, I’ve […]

I never get sick of gingerbread, I truly wish it weren’t considered a seasonal thing (gingerbread is my pumpkin spice if you know what I’m saying). Finding ways to work those warm and delicious flavours into all possible things never gets old or boring. The marriage of gingerbread and hot chocolate therefore just seemed meant […]

Éclairs!!! I feel like I’m super embracing my French background this year what with the macrons, the madeleines, meringues, crème brulée and now éclairs? I probably should’ve forgone doing something French in favour of doing something from….well…anywhere else really. But is it really my fault that the French know their desserts? Why should I punish […]

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.
