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 had this recipe from Cooking Lite for many years.

1 tbsp butter, melted
3/4 lb baby Vidalia onions, sliced thin with some green tops (or 1 1/2 cups chopped green onions)
1 garlic clove, minced
1 carton (16-oz) egg substitute
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/8 tsp hot sauce
3/4 cup shredded reduced-fat sharp Cheddar cheese

Melt the butter in a 10-inch ovenproof skillet over medium heat.  Add the onion and garlic; cook 5 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally.

Arrange onion mixture evenly in the bottom of skillet.  Combine the egg substitute, salt, pepper, and hot sauce; pour evenly over the onion mixture.  Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, uncovered, approximately 8 minutes or until set (mixture will still be wet on top).

Preheat broiler.

Broil frittata for 3 minutes; sprinkle the cheese over the top and broil another minute or until cheese melts.

Allow frittata to stand for 5 minutes before cutting to serve.
