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.

I have never cooked lamb but I know some of you like lamb, especially at Easter time.  I got this recipe recently from Campbell's and thought I would pass it on to you readers.

6 lamb chops (about 3/4-inch thick)
1 teaspoon dried rosemary leaves, crushed
1 tsp lemon zest
3 tbsp lemon juice
1 cup chicken Stock
2 teaspoons cornstarch
3 teaspoons Dijon-style mustard
Heat the broiler.

Season the lamb with the rosemary; place on a rack in a broiler pan.                                                   

Broil for 10 minutes for medium-rare or until desired doneness, turning the lamb over once halfway through the broiling time.                                                   

Stir the broth and cornstarch in a 1-quart saucepan until the mixture is smooth. Stir in the lemon zest, lemon juice and mustard. Cook and stir over medium heat until the mixture boils and thickens. Serve with the lamb.
