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.

Spray a medium-size roasting pan with nonstick cooking spray.

Combine the honey, mustard, and salt together in a bowl.  Place the roast in the prepared roasting pan and coat thoroughly with the honey mixture.  Cover with foil and roast at 375 for 40 minutes.  Remove foil and baste with pan drippings.

Cook, uncovered, for another 20 minutes or until no pink remains.

Allow roast to set for 10 minutes before slicing to serve.  Serve with the pan drippings.
