I know, I know, you didn’t come here to get “health-ified” (and if you did, I strongly apologize as you have been, in general, grievously misled). Sometimes though, we all like something that’s desserty, but not overly sweet. Am I right? Or is that just me? There’s very little sugaryness in these. In fact virtually all […]

Ok, I’ll be the first to admit that the photo does not make this look like the most appetizing thing in the world. For presentation here, I most definitely get a score of negative a million (or thereabouts). But rest assured dear reader, it tastes much, much better than it seems when first meets the […]

I really made that sound appetizing didn’t I? 😉 It’s truly a gift, please, hold your applause. So, as I’ve mentioned many a time, I’m a huge peanut butter lover. It’s no surprise then that peanut butter balls are a staple during Christmas baking season. Once Christmas is over however, the poor delicately delicious peanut […]

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 […]

Alright, here’s the real Halloween post (not like that fake-out post from last week 😉 ). This week I bring you a veritable smorgasbord of super fast/easy Halloween desserts of both the healthy (booo!!!) and unhealthy (yeah!!!!) variety. So, you know, be afraid, be very afraid…or whatever. Complete side note here, but don’t you love how […]

A challenge presented itself to me this week. Well…the challenge didn’t just walk up to me in the street or anything. Although here’s a delicious rendition of my possible responses to such a proposal: (that denied face it awesome). It was a request that did at first blush sound challenging indeed though. Create a gluten-free, refined sugar-free birthday cake. […]

I apologize if you were shocked/appalled/outraged at this headline, but it was way too awesome for me not to use (although I’m obviously biased 😉 ). I suppose I should’ve tried to be a bit more equal opportunity/ gender equality about it though, I shouldn’t just assume that my dessert was female. Here’s my manly version […]

We made it! Although a pretty big part of me is sad as well. I’m happy to move on from herbs (no offence intended to any Herbs out there. I’m sure you’re great). I do feel like I learned a fair bit doing it though, so definitely not a loss, but the end of herb […]

Finally, an opportunity to use that phrase without the imminent embarrassment of sounding like I’m somebody’s mom trying to sound cool and/or young and hip. Although a) I’m about 20 years too late for “What’s the Dilly Yo?” to be used by anybody even 5 seconds younger than I am and b) Who am I […]

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.
