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.

When a recipe calls for brown sugar you can make your own sugar-free substitute. NOTE: This recipe will make enough to substitute for 1 cup of brown sugar although it will not measure as 1 cup.

1 cup Splenda Granular
1/4 cup sugar-free maple-flavored syrup

Place both ingredients into a small mixing bowl and mix together well.
