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 chicken breasts, split and skinned
4 teaspoons butter at room temperature
1 tablespoon instant minced onion
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp paprika

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Place the chicken breasts in an ungreased square baking pan or dish. Spread one teaspoon of butter over each piece of chicken then sprinkle with the onion, garlic salt, and paprika. Bake at 425 degrees, uncovered, for 30 to 35 minutes until juices run clear when pricked with a fork.

To serve, sprinkle with parsley, if desired.
