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 Christmas break right? Right???? Exactly). Now I’ll be one of the first to admit that these little coconutty […]

Oh Come All Ye Fudgeful

December 18 , 2016 by Amber Trudeau - in Candy

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 to see my epic fails. I’m still telling you about it, but I have to draw the line somewhere 😉 Ok, that’s not even true really. […]

So I have about a million apples in my fridge, so apple cinnamon scones definitely seemed like a way to go. To amp these up a little though, I added a whole whack of your traditional chai spice spices as well and thus we have some delectable Glazed Apple Chai Scones. Oh the memories. Anywho, […]

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 […]

I’m incredibly, incredibly excited about sharing this one. For months I’ve been eagerly awaiting the release of Bailey’s Almande (a vegan version of Bailey’s traditional Irish Cream! Excitement endorphins, start your engines). Since it recently became available at my local LCBO (or lick-bo as I’m typically wont to call it), I of course had to […]

These really are heroes in a half shell (well a full shell, which is mostly because the minute any teenagers, mutant or otherwise, get their hands on these balls of deliciousness, they will choose to hoard them all and keep them safely ensconced far from prying eyes so that they may consume all of them themselves. […]

Mmmmm….savoury truffles. Actually I had no idea whether or not this would be a good idea, but I’ve had it on my list of things/ combinations that I’ve been wanting to give a go for quite some time, and recently decided that the time is now. Why put off until tomorrow what you can do today […]

I feel guilty for this weeks pun I must admit. It’s totally just a well known and completely stolen joke. However it was so fitting I felt I had no choice. Although I suppose one could make the argument that that’s like a thief saying “That bank was just right there, it’s like they were asking […]

We made it through another year! As a side note, I’ve now officially passed the one year mark of bloggerdom! (is that a thing? Sure it is 😉 ). To be perfectly honest, I did not think I had it in me to post weekly for a month let alone a whole year, so huzzah […]

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.
