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 jar (26-oz) low-sugar or sugar-free spaghetti sauce
6 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese, divided
6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1 1/2 cup shredded low-fat mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Place the spaghetti sauce in the bottom of a 9 x 13-inch baking pan or dish.  Slowly stir in 4 tablespoons of the Parmesan cheese; add the chicken and turn each piece over to evenly coat both sides.  Cover the pan with foil.  Place in the oven at bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes.

Remove chicken from oven and remove the foil.  Top the chicken with the remaining Parmesan cheese and the mozzarella.  Return to the oven and continue baking, uncovered, for another 5 minutes or so until the chicken is cooked through and the cheese is melted.
Yield: 6 servings.
