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.

4 (4-oz each) ribeye steaks
1 tbsp unsalted butter
2 tbsp olive or coconut oil
1 large red onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, crushed
1/3 cup beef broth
2 tbsp jarred horseradish
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Using paper towels, pat steaks dry.

Heat large skillet over medium-high heat; add steaks and cook for 5 minutes per side for medium (adjust time to suit your taste).  Remove from pan and keep warm.

Add the butter and oil to the skillet and stir to blend. Add the onion and garlic; saute 5 minutes or until onion is tender and pan juices are almost evaporated. Using a slotted spoon, remove onion and garlic from the pan.

Add the beef broth to the skillet and cook, stirring constantly, for a couple of minutes to reduce the sauce.

Return the onion and garlic to the skillet; add the horseradish, salt and pepper. Heat to a serving temperature.

To serve, spoon the onion mixture over the steaks.
