…No, I’m not asking about your dating type (or personal description…I don’t know how you word your online dating profile! I will freely admit to knowing absolutely nothing about online dating and what goes on there. I luckily found the yin to my yang (that sounded weirdly dirty, but you know what I’m saying) before […]

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! šŸ™‚ ). Because I know what you’re thinking…”Amber, do you […]

When I stumbled across a recipe for what was labelled “Ginger Crunch” cookies/ slices, I was immediately intrigued and merrily skipped through the blog post in which it appearedĀ until I got to the recipe and was eagerly looking for the “crunch” element. I was incredibly disappointed. It was basically just a shortbread cookie topped with […]

We all know that I clearly have no illusions about this being a “healthy” blog. Despite common misconceptions, just because something is vegan does not mean it’s healthy. Now can we all please pass this message on to the blogosphere and/or the internet/world in general? To be perfectly honest, I’m sure more people would come […]

This post shouldn’t even exist. The only reason for my sharing this with you is because I was test running some ginger praline that I wanted to see about incorporating into something for a well thought outĀ future post (still to come, but I’ll keep y’all in suspense for now). However, this praline turned out incredibly […]

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 […]

Alright, technically I know that Christmas is over now, but I still had this one recipe kicking about, so be like me and just embrace the season for a little bit longer (I mean technically it’s still considered ChristmasĀ break right? Right???? Exactly). Now I’ll be one of the first to admit that these little coconutty […]

Oh Come All Ye Fudgeful

The third time really was a charm with these. I almost quit after my first two attempts (of which there is no photographic evidence as I don’t think anyone needs toĀ see my epic fails. I’m still telling you about it, but I have to draw the line somewhere šŸ˜‰ Ok, that’s not even true really. […]

Pa Rum Pa Pum Pum Balls

FYI – the next month’s worth of posts will be Christmas related so rev your engines and hold onto your….reindeer…or…whatever. I’m also warning you in advance that these Christmas puns are particularly terrible and not in a good way, so I’m sorry for that in advance šŸ™‚ Now, on with the post! Can you believe […]

About Amber

Amber Profile

Hi, I'm Amber Trudeau. Ā 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. Ā 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. Ā To recreate some kind of traditional dessert that tastes amazing without using animal products.
