they were delicious

And they were delicious. Very juicy little sausages in a perfectly baked roll with just a tiny crispness to the crust. Just to add on a few more calories, we dipped them in a sour cream mustard dip.

bitty sausage rolls

Recently Matthew and I were lured into purchasing teeny, plump sausages from the Japanese market. They were so short, and irresistibly sausagy and cute. Now, before you say "what? Japanese sausage? are you crazy?" All the sausages we've bought from the Japanese grocery store have been really good and made of very high quality meat. These particular sausages are made of beef and look a bit darker because of that.

With bread dough in the fridge and these little guys just waiting to be eaten, it seemed perfectly logical to think of making sausage rolls. I'm honestly not entirely sure that this will work, but I've got to try it because the whole concept is just too yummy and cute. They might fall apart while baking but if nothing else, we can pull out the sausages and eat them all on their own. I'm sure they will be delicious!

past due cupcake post

A valentine gift from my sweet and slightly crazy neighbor. It made my day when he knocked on the door and presented me with this little treat all packaged in an individual cupcake carrier. It was all just too cute.

I know it's been over a month since valentine's day but I still wanted to post this darling little treat(Please know that I did in fact eat it a timely manner, the posting just took a bit longer than it should have. But one never knows with me; I do love to save food).

And below is a photo of the cake we split on valentine's day. Yes we did actually split it and therefore just the two of us ate the entire thing. why? how? it was from the sheer force of our cake-eating will!

pretty in pink and red bows

Just a pretty little picture of some homemade caramels all wrapped up in pretty bows. These sea salt and coaco nib caramels were a gift from my employer for valentine's day. They are incredibly rich and delicious, hence the reason I still have a handfull left three full weeks after valentine's day.
