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 envelope Golden Onion Soup Mix
2/3 cup dry bread crumbs
2 large eggs, beaten
8 pork chops, 1/2-inch thick
1 to 2 tablespoons melted butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine the dry soup mix with the bread crumbs in a shallow bowl. Put the beaten eggs into another shallow bowl. Dip the pork chops in the eggs then into the bread crumbs. Coat chops well. Place the chops in a lightly greased 9 x 13-inch baking pan. Drizzle with melted butter. Bake for 1 hour or until the chops are cooked through, turning once.
