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.

Note: These sausage balls are appetizers. A diabetic should not make a meal of them.

2 cups low-fat biscuit baking mix (such as Bisquick)
1 lb hot pork sausage (spice is good for diabetics)
1 cup shredded low-fat cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix all ingredients together in a mixing bowl using your hands. Shape into 36 appetizer-size balls.

Place the balls on a wire rack on a cookie sheet with sides (This allows the fat to drip out). Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

Note: These sausage balls freeze well.
