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.

2 cups sliced fresh peaches
1/3 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
2 tsp butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8-inch square baking dish or pan with nonstick cooking spray.

Layer the peaches in the bottom of the prepared pan. In a small bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, cinnamon, and nutmeg, stirring together well. Add the butter and stir until well combined. Sprinkle the graham cracker crumb mixture over the peaches. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Serve warm.

Note: Top with whipped cream or sugar-free ice cream, if desired.
