Smashed potatoes

Smashed Potatoes with Herbed Yogurt Sauce

These amazing smashed potatoes go by many other names. Australians call them hot crash potatoes and some people call them crushed potatoes. Whatever you call them, you’ll want to make them soon.

Boiling the potatoes first, then smashing them open and baking them in the oven makes them crispy outside and tender and creamy inside. Top with Parmesan cheese and garlic. How can you beat that?

Serve these fabulous crispy roast potatoes with our herb flavored dipping sauce with lemon and garlic. They make a great appetizer or side dish.

Blueberry Dessert Pudding

This blueberry dessert is one of my favorite diabetic dessert recipes.

I call it a pudding but it’s not a pudding in the traditional sense. It isn’t thickened with eggs or flour. It isn’t even cooked! But it’s a wonderful light and fruity concoction that is high in protein, something that is very difficult to come by in dessert recipes.

This banana yogurt parfait makes a perfect, not too sweet healthy dessert or snack.
