I know, I know, you’re “themed” out. All I have to say about that is, that’s a crying shame, but I, unfortunately for you, am not themed out in the slightest, and so, here we are again at the beginning of another culinary adventure! 🙂 This time (in case the title wasn’t a dead giveaway), […]

Final Pan Am post! Aren’t you excited? I know I sure am! (well…I’m actually most excited about getting back all my lost “can’t drive in the 3+HOV lane” time). Don’t be sad about this being the final post though, I don’t want to cause a Pan-demic! (yes, I literally only included that sentence for the horrible […]

WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! Ok, now that that I’ve got your attention, I need to caveat that, despite the name of this blog, these cookies are actually not really very sweet (except for the jam part of course 🙂 ). To be honest, that’s what I personally quite like about them. They’re really more like a […]

Viva Las Puffs

Or, what happens in vegan marshmallow cookies stays in….err, gets shared with everyone? 😉 Shouldn’t that really be Las Vegas’ slogan in this day and age anyway? I think we’re closer to living in a Big Brother-esque society than we’ve ever been, so keeping anything secret seems virtually impossible. Which is why I totally can’t […]

Even I’m saying “groan” about that title, I’m just off my game in the pun department this week. Feel free to offer your own (presumably much better) hazelnut and/or date related puns in the comments below 🙂 . These little doozies have no added sugar if you care about such things. Which of course is not […]

Pecan Pi R squared

March 22 , 2015 by Amber Trudeau - in Pie

Happy (belated) Pi Day! Yes, yes, I know I’m way past the date at this point, but what can I say? For me, every day is a reason to celebrate with pie, so it’s way too easy for March 14th to slip by me unnoticed. Also, there’s 3 big days in a row, so it’s hard […]

But I’m a drunken rebel and so I did all kinds of verboten things with this recipe 🙂 A couple of months ago my friend Rebecca gave me the challenge of making vegan trifle. I said “sure, but those bowls are so big, and it’s not really the kind of thing that’s that portable, so […]

Cherry-ots of Fire

March 08 , 2015 by Amber Trudeau - in Cookies

Ah, maraschino cherries. They belong right up there with Worcestershire sauce as one of those words that always make me sound like I’ve just come from having my mouth frozen at the dentist when I try and say them. Is it wrong that there are some things I don’t like cooking/baking with purely for the […]

I know what you’re thinking, “Amber, you just did peanut butter last week, are you already so out of ideas that you can’t do something new?” Now on the one hand you would be right, but on the other hand, I love, love, love (did I mention LOVE???) peanut butter, so you’re just going 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.
