Slow Cooker Venison with Carrots Slow Cooker Venison with Carrots By Carpe Cibus 09/29/14 00:25 Last hunting season, a friend graciously gave us a venison roast. He openly admitted he had no idea what cut of meat he had just offered us. I love venison, but I have never had the opportunity to cook it myself. But I was up for the challenge. The meat...
Pablano Polenta Stuffed Peppers Pablano Polenta Stuffed Peppers By Carpe Cibus 09/27/14 00:41 My usual course of action with several peppers on hand is to stuff them. Typically, fillings involve ground meat and rice, smothered in tomato sauce. On rare occasions an Indian inspired version comes about, using lentils or chickpeas and copious amounts...
Skillet Corn Cakes Skillet Corn Cakes By Carpe Cibus 09/24/14 00:09 Corn, corn and more corn. But this time, for breakfast! These cakes, fritters or patties (what you will) are quite lovely served with fried or poached eggs...runny yolks soaking into the cornmeal... Mmmmm. adpated from Cookie Monster Cooking serves 4 The...
Tomato Beet Salad with Balsamic Dressing Tomato Beet Salad with Balsamic Dressing By Carpe Cibus 09/22/14 00:25 This dish is in the run for one of the most colorful salads of all time. Just look at it! What a perfect way to show of those gorgeous heirloom tomatoes! Sungolds, Cherokee Purple, Green Zebra, Valencia... And any number of vibrant beets. Wouldn't chioggia...
Zucchini Muffins with Feta Zucchini Muffins with Feta By Carpe Cibus 09/20/14 00:38 I have a slightly hard time calling these muffins. Zucchini muffins should be sweet and spiced, right? Like carrot cake and pumpkin bread and other vegetables parading around in baked good form. Yes, they are shaped like muffins. And certainly they fit...
Corn Dog Fritters Corn Dog Fritters By Carpe Cibus 09/17/14 00:54 Corn dogs are a guilty pleasure of mine. With mustard. Always with mustard. This portable meal is not something I would consider making at home. Until now. This recipe is state fair food at its finest, in bite-size form! On-a-stick optional. adapted from...
Sweet Corn Risotto Sweet Corn Risotto By Carpe Cibus 09/15/14 00:04 I find something very soothing about making risotto. The slow additions of broth, the constant stirring. This dish has the added bonus of using up the last of the summers bounty of sweet corn. I still have a few additional corn recipes in the works though...fritters,...
Thai Cucmuber Salad Thai Cucmuber Salad By Carpe Cibus 09/13/14 00:42 This is the last of the Thai inspired recipes. At least for a little while. I really can't make any promises. The search for this recipe was inspired by the continuous onslaught of cucumbers from our CSA farm. If only they sent us slightly smaller cucs...I'm...
Kale and Carrot Salad with Spicy Peanut Dressing Kale and Carrot Salad with Spicy Peanut Dressing By Carpe Cibus 09/10/14 00:28 CSA veggies, meet Thai. I have no apologies anymore. Vegan and gluten-free. Dear lord this seems so unlike me... The original recipe calls for creamy peanut butter. I used crunchy because it is what I had on hand. Personally, I enjoy the extra bit of texture....
Curried Chickpea and Carrot Salad Curried Chickpea and Carrot Salad By Carpe Cibus 09/08/14 00:13 The Thai food has returned. I warned you a string of these recipes was coming... With the heat of summer at its apex, avoiding the heat of the kitchen is a must. But the need to prepare food calls. This recipe is prefect for those sweltering days. No hot...
Chocolate Milk Stout bbq Ribs with Mole Spice Rub Chocolate Milk Stout bbq Ribs with Mole Spice Rub By Carpe Cibus 09/05/14 23:59 Chocolate, beer and barbecue don't seem like an obvious pairing, but trust me on this one. Do you like mole sauce? How about chocolate milk stout? dark roasty beers have an affinity for roasted and grilled meats. Stouts and Porters also love chocolate....
Thai Coconut Curry Lentil Bake Thai Coconut Curry Lentil Bake By Carpe Cibus 09/03/14 00:26 I must apologize in advance. I'm on a bit of a Thai kick. Between the flaked coconut, curry pastes, fish sauce, cilantro and lime juice I have on hand, Thai seems like an obvious choice. adapted from Amuse You Bouche serves 3-4 The Ingredients: 1 cup brown...
Chioggia Beet Chips Chioggia Beet Chips By Carpe Cibus 09/01/14 00:50 Fewer vegetables are as pretty as chioggia beets. Those vibrant alternating stripes of white and red. Even baked to a crisp they keep their festive look. And in chip form, even the beet haters can't help but try one. I can't say these chips will convert...
Peanut Butter Banana Muffins Peanut Butter Banana Muffins By Carpe Cibus 08/30/14 00:34 I always seem to have too many bananas on hand. So when I came across this recipe I had not choice but to give it a try. Not only did the muffins call for a whopping 5, FIVE! bananas, it also incorporated peanut butter. As a child I loved spreading peanut...
Banana Pepper, Kale and Summer Squash Frittata Banana Pepper, Kale and Summer Squash Frittata By Carpe Cibus 08/27/14 00:00 CSA veggies make for some of the best breakfasts! This recipe seems like a lot of produce. And it is. But most of the vegetables cook down quite a bit and are mixed up with just enough egg to hold the whole thing together. A word of caution on using banana...
Cucumber, Edamame and Tuna Salad with Garlic Thyme Vinaigrette Cucumber, Edamame and Tuna Salad with Garlic Thyme Vinaigrette By Carpe Cibus 08/25/14 00:43 Sometimes it's the simple things in life that bring the most pleasure. Of course this salad had the added bonus of putting a dent in my ever growing crop of cucumbers. the recipe is my own serves 2 The Ingredients: 1 - 5 oz can tuna, drained 1/2 cup edamame,...
Garlic Butter Shrimp over Quinoa and Spinach Garlic Butter Shrimp over Quinoa and Spinach By Carpe Cibus 08/23/14 00:31 I'm pretending this is a healthy dish, paraded over a bed of quinoa. But it's really not. It's shrimp drenched in garlic butter. No, it does not compare to the wonder that is Giovanni's Shrimp Truck on the North Shore of Oahu. But few shrimp dishes are....
Strawberry Banana Mini Muffins Strawberry Banana Mini Muffins By Carpe Cibus 08/20/14 00:39 Everyone has their "perfect" banana bread recipe. Mine fluctuates all of the time, though I too have settled on a favorite. But never will I claim to have the best, or most moist, or "to die for" recipe. Tastes are far too complex and too many wonderful...
Snap Pea and Cucumber Salad with Radish and Dill Snap Pea and Cucumber Salad with Radish and Dill By Carpe Cibus 08/17/14 23:45 Veggies, veggies, everywhere! This salad is a nice change of pace from the usual mayo and pasta heavy side dishes at the summer's frequent potlucks and BBQs. And yet another wonderful excuse to use up the bounty of our CSA box! This may be the last of the...
Seared Pork Chops with Garlic Scape Chimichurri Seared Pork Chops with Garlic Scape Chimichurri By Carpe Cibus 08/16/14 00:12 One of my favorite parts of our CSA box is the garlic scapes. I love these elegant tender curls. Often I'll sautee them up like green beans. Or add them to a morning omelet with feta and whatever herbs tagged along in that week's box. But lately I've been...
