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.  2 cups milk
  2. 1 cup Splenda
  3. 1 pinch baking soda

  4. Pour the milk in a pan and add the Splenda.
  5. Bring to a boil and then simmer on a medium-high flame, stirring regularly. It needs to reduce by half its volume.  This should take about 20 minutes.  The milk can boil over anytime, so keep watching it.
  6. After about 17-18 minutes, the milk will turn a very vibrant color and the texture will be very frothy.
  7. Switch off the flame and add the baking soda. Stir well and let it cool.
  8. Once cooled, stir well and store in an air tight container or use immediately.
