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 […]

It’s the final week! I know, I’m sad too. But don’t let it get you down. If you’re feeling blue, this recipe will take those blues and turn them into berries. Delicious delicious, east-coasty berries. This week, in an hômage to the maritime provinces, I bring you the blueberry grunt. I had technically never hear […]

Week two!! I know, you’re super excited, I can feel it from here. The air is practically palpable with your barely contained exuberance. Just breathe, we still have two more weeks after this one, so reserve at least some of your enthusiasm for future posts 😉 . I know I said last week that I […]

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 […]

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 […]

Thanks Kevin! This title was much better than my original “Wasted Away Again in Margarita(Truffle)Ville” – that just felt awkward. Puns just shouldn’t be forced am I right? 😉 Just do what comes natural that’s what I say. Anyone who knows me knows that I have a love-hate….actually, even that’s too generous – the truth […]

Terrible, terrible pun. It works for both what I made this week and as a description of the trouble I was having coming up with a pun. However, for those of you who were up in arms last week waving around your fiery pitchforks in protest over how a savoury, olive-studded baked good made it’s […]

So a while back I had procured for myself a box of Fruit Loops and a box of Captain Crunch (accidentally vegan, huzzah!) for some baking goodness. Unfortunately, I’d opted not to use the Fruit Loops at all, and I really only needed like a half cup of the Captain Crunch. So, what to do […]

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.
