I am definitely a person who has a not-so-secret love affair with liquid smoke. I don’t know what it is about it, but it makes me swoon rapturously, and I am admittedly pretty heavy handed with it if I’m making soups, stews or chilis (particularly if I won’t be foisting it upon other people. This […]

Death by chocolate, is there really any way to go that sounds sweeter? Maybe drowning in boiling melted chocolate would not be so great due to the whole burning your flesh thing (and also, you’d likely get chocolate up your nose and that just sounds both unpleasant and incredibly wasteful 😉 ). So my book […]

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 […]

You guessed it – it’s another themed month! (cue the fireworks and crazy conga line dancers of joy): That’s right Simpsons – you win friends with delicious, delicious desserts (unless you’ve poisoned said desserts, at which point, you win a life sentence in jail. And since you clearly can’t be trusted with desserts, you also […]

What is a person to do when they make a recipe and realize they ended up with way way too much leftover icing? My usual go-to method in this situation is to put it in my coffee for a week or so until it’s used up (makes for some surprisingly delicious and strange flavour combinations, […]

So I came across the idea for these from one of the random cooking / baking shows that I’m obsessed with (do I remember which one? Of course not 🙁 I have a sneaking suspicion that it was from the couple of episodes of “The Great Australian Bake Off” that I watched after my sadness […]

This is a trend that I’m so irked about that it doesn’t even deserve a pun. THAT’S how bad it is!!!  ….OK, who am I kidding, I love puns too much, so I’ll still give it a go. How about “Who Peed In Your (Uni)Corn Flakes?”? No? Not a fan? Well now you know how […]

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.
