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 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
1/2 cup Splenda Granulated
1/2 cup water
1 tsp lemon zest
1 tbsp lemon juice

Biscuit Dough
1 cup white whole-wheat flour
2 tbsp Splenda Granulated
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp butter
1/2 cup low-fat milk

Sugar-free vanilla ice cream, for serving, optional

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a 10-inch ovenproof skillet, combine berries, Splenda, water, zest and juice; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, for around 10 minutes until slightly thickened; stir occasionally.

To make biscuits while berries cook, whisk the flour, Splenda, baking powder and salt together in a small bowl. Cut in the butter until mixture is like coarse crumbs; stir in the mix just until moistened.

Drop discuit dough into six portions atop the simmering berry mixture. Place in the preheated oven and bake, uncovered, 17 to 20 minutes or until the biscuits are golden brown.

Serve while warm and top with some of the ice cream, if desired.

Yield: 6 servings

Note: This is a dessert, only one serving, please!
