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 lb hot Italian sausages
1 large red bell pepper, seeded & cored
1 large green bell pepper, seeded & cored
1 large yellow bell pepper, seeded & cored
1 medium onion, cut in half then each half cut into 1/2-inch thick slices
1 tsp dried oregano
3/4 tsp hot pepper sauce
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup water

In a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat, cook sausages 15 minutes or until browned on all sides; turn occasionally during cooking, pricking with fork. Remove to a cutting board.

In the same skillet, cook the peppers and onions about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

When cool enough to handle, cut sausages into 1-inch thick slices and return to skillet. Stir in the oregano, hot pepper sauce, salt, and water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 5 minutes to blend the flavors.
