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 white whole-wheat flour
2 packets taco season mix
1/2 tsp salt
2 large eggs
2 tbsp milk
2 frying chickens (about 3 1/2 lbs each), cut up

Combine the flours, taco seasoning mix and salt in a large resealable plastic bag with a zip top.

In a shallow bowl, beat the eggs and milk together.  Dip the chicken pieces in the egg mixture then place in the plastic bag (a couple of pieces at a time) and shake to coat. 

Place the chicken bone side down on a greased cookie sheet that has sides.  Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 55 to 60 minutes until the juices run clear when pricked with a fork.

Serves 10 to 12.
