The recent report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is certainly alarming: it says that the number of Americans with diabetes will double or triple in the next forty years. If they're right, we'll see up to 1 in 3 of all Americans affected. The vast majority of these new cases will be Type 2 diabetes: people whose bodies continue to make insulin for regulating their blood sugars, but their bodies don’t use it properly.
Those who are already at a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes include people who are older and with a family history of the disease, as well as being African American or Hispanic. Even so, Type 2 diabetes most commonly develops in those who are overweight or obese. Bad News, Good News – Diabetes On The Rise, But There's A Solution
This is a fabulous and savory rub for steak. It's a great idea to keep instant espresso on hand - you can use it in a lot of recipes. (You could use instant coffee granules in this recipe, but the flavor will be much milder.) You could also use a cup of liquid espresso, but you would need to reduce it by about half. Put the espresso in a small pan over medium-high heat and simmer until reduced. Let cool and add the spices and oil.
I love having herbed oil on hand. Basil oil is a great choice and is especially delicious in this recipe. You can use any herb oil you want to for this recipe – rosemary or thyme oil, for instance, will give these potatoes a lovely herbaceous flavor. (You could, of course, leave the oil out as well.)
