I have chosen this name for this blog because it truly states my story. I am a type II diabetic who most certainly enjoys food. When I was diagnosed with diabetes several years ago, my blood sugar level was over 400. With some oral medications, a lot of research and some trial and error, I have found that unlike my ancestors I truly can continue to enjoy food. I hope this blog will help you to also enjoy food and be healthy. Some recipes are my originals and some I have collected. Everyone reacts different to various foods. Check your blood sugar readings so you will know whether or not a recipe works for you!

1 pkg (3-oz) cream cheese, softened
2 1/2-oz can deviled ham
1/2 tsp prepared mustard
1/2 tsp chili sauce
celery stalks
sweet pickle relish, optional

Blend the deviled ham with the softened cream cheese, mustard, and chili sauce; blend together well. Stuff the celery stalks with the ham mixture and cut into 2 to 3-inch lengths. Top with a dab of pickle relish, if desired. (You will get a very minimal amount of sugar from this.)

Note: This mixture is also good served on assorted crackers
