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 large red onion, sliced, separated into rings
1 large white or yellow onion, sliced, separated into rings
2 tablespoons honey*
1 tablespoon Dijon-style mustard
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
Combine all the ingredients in a 2-quart saucepan. Cook mixture over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes until onions are tender. Remove from heat and use to top burgers, etc.
*If honey is a problem for you, use your favorite sugar-substitute. Personally, I use 1 tablespoon honey with 1 tablespoon Splenda granular.
This amount will top 4 to 5 burgers.
Note: This is a recipe I got three or four years ago from Land O' Lakes.
