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 cans (1 lb 13oz each) no sugar added peaches
3/4 cup Splenda granulated

1 tsp ground cloves

Drain peaches completely; puree in blender. Pour puree into a 4-quart slow cooker. Stir in the Splenda, cinnamon and cloves.

Place lid on cooker and cook on high 8 to 10 hours. Remove the lid during the last half of the cooking time. Stir occasionally during cooking.

Note: This is delicious on whole-grain toast, whole-grain pancakes, biscuits, pound cake or as an ice cream topping.
