A challenge presented itself to me this week. Well…the challenge didn’t just walk up to me in the street or anything. Although here’s a delicious rendition of my possible responses to such a proposal: (that denied face it awesome). It was a request that did at first blush sound challenging indeed though. Create a gluten-free, refined sugar-free birthday cake. […]

Well colour me embarrassed. After going on that ridiculously long rant the other week about muffins and how ridiculous they are, we now find ourselves with another muffin post (*blush*). I have no real defence except that making those blueberry oregano muffins reminded me of an old recipe I used to like as a kid […]

Knowing that strawberry season is “basil”-ly at an end causes unknown quantities of tears and sadness for me. Maybe the rest of you are all just like “you’ve eaten one strawberry, you’ve eaten them all” or “Bah! They’ll be back again next year, stop your whining!” But will they be back? Will they!!!?? Ok, they probably […]

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 […]

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.
