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 cup Bisquick-type mix
1 cup raw quick oats
1 tbsp Splenda Brown Sugar Blend
3/4 cup low-fat milk
2 eggs, beaten or 1/2 cup egg substitute
2 tbsp butter, melted and slightly cooled
1/2 cup fresh blueberries, washed and drained

In a medium bowl combine the baking mix, oats, Splenda, milk, eggs, and butter; mix together well.  Gently fold in the blueberries.

Heat a lightly greased griddle or large skillet until  hot; add batter and cook until the edges are slightly dry and surface is bubbly.  Turn and cook on other side until golden brown.

If you use syrup, be sure to use sugar-free.
