We all knew it couldn’t last long. Peanuts and peanut butter are my kyptonite, so y’all knew it was going to make another appearance here before you had the chance to say “Hey! I just noticed it’s been 5 whole seconds since Amber mentioned peanut butter! It must be some kind of record. Amber – […]

These were not in any way what I had originally intended to make. I was weirdly thinking about bananas, so that part still came to fruitition (get it? FRUITition? Waka wakka waka. You know you love it 😉 ), but I was actually initially intending some kind of banana bread-esque thing with icing. But then […]

A Boy Named Tiramisu

December 31 , 2017 by Amber Trudeau - in Bars, Candy

I mean, who wouldn’t want that for a name? Oh Johnny Cash, things could’ve been so different for your titular song character if only a “Tira-” had been added to his name. There’s a reason people always nickname their loved ones after delicious treats (Sweetie Pie, Sugar, Honey, Babe….uh…that last one might mean your loved one […]

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 […]

Because I love oatmeal in all of it’s various forms (well…I’m maybe not so big a fan of instant oatmeal I’ll admit. But I mean seriously people? Was this really a product that needed to get more convenient? I mean, you can cook quick oats in the microwave in like 2 minutes, and put on […]

Let me just get right to it this week, because I can’t even begin to describe how in love with this brittle I am. In one of my many hours of online recipe stalking, I stumbled across a bunch of different sites that had recipes for quinoa brittle (the photos actually all look disturbingly like […]

Oatmeal raisin cookies. I love ’em. I can’t believe I don’t already have a post about these on this blog. Well…technically I can believe it. For some reason, they don’t seem to be other people’s favourite. Even if/ when people are willing to embrace a love for all things oatmeal cookie, they always want it […]

I know, I know, you’re thinking “didn’t you just do some kind of oatmeal bar thing? Way to be original Amber. I thought I knew you, for shame. Tsk, tsk, tsk.” (And now you’re thinking “How is she such a magical, mystical mind reader??!! I better only think good thoughts about Amber, otherwise she might […]

I’ll just lay it out there for you straight up – I love oatmeal. I don’t think I’ve had a week (and even very few days if I’m being honest) in which oatmeal was not included as part of my breakfast since….I don’t know, probably since I discovered that the dreaded instant oatmeal packets (of which […]

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.
