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.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Lightly spray cookie sheets with nonstick cooking oil spray.

In mixing bowl combine all 4 ingredients until well blended.

Drop by teaspoon onto the prepared cookie sheets.

Dip a fork into some Splenda and make criss-cross marks on cookies.

Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes.  Allow to cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
