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.

This basics of this recipe are from a Quick Cooking 1999 magazine.

1/2 lb Premium Jimmy Dean Premium Pork roll sausage
12 eggs
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 cup shredded low-fat cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large skillet, cook the sausage over medium heat until no longer pink. Stir while cooking to break up into crumbles; drain well.

In a large bowl, beat the eggs until fluffy. Stir in the onion, bell pepper, and spices until combined. Stir in the drained sausage and the cheese.

Lightly spray 12 muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray. Place 1/3 cup of the egg mixture into each muffin cup.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

Yield: 12 muffins

Note: Also good with fried, crumbled bacon along with or in place of the sausage.
