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! And feel free to take a recipe and adjust it to suit your needs.

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1 large egg

1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

In a medium bowl stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt; set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the cereal and milk. Let mixture stand about 3 minutes or until the cereal softens. Add the egg and vegetable oil; mix together well. Add the flour mixture, stirring only until combined. Gently stir in the blueberries. Divide the batter evenly into 12 muffin cups that have been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.
