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 large eggs
1/2 cup Diet Dr. Pepper (or Dr. Pepper Ten)
1/2 cup baking cocoa powder
1 cup unsweetened chocolate chips, divided
1/4 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line a 9-inch loaf pan with parchment baking paper; set aside.

Beat eggs with an electric mixer until doubled in quantity.

Add Dr. Pepper and cocoa powder; mix together well.

Fold in 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips. Pour batter into the prepared pan.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

When brownies are only slightly cool melt the remaining half cup of chocolate chips; pour over brownies. Sprinkle the pecans over the top.

To serve, cut the brownies down the middle lengthwise then make 4 equal cuts crosswise creating 8 brownies.
