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!

2 lbs lean beef short ribs
1 tbsp canola oil
1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
1 tbsp prepared horseradish
1 tsp salt
1/8 tsp fresh ground black pepper
2 cans (8-oz each) tomato sauce

Cut beef into 4 pieces. Heat the canola oil in a skillet and add the ribs. Brown ribs on all sides then drain off excess fat.

Combine the onion, horseradish, salt, pepper, and tomato sauce with a wire whisk; pour over the ribs. Cover skillet and reduce heat to simmer. Simmer for 1 1/2 hours or until the ribs are tender. If sauce thickens too much, add a small amount of water.

Yield: 4 servings
