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.

Microwave the 2 cups soda on high until hot (1 to 2 minutes).

Place the hot soda and the gelatin powder in a blender; cover and process until the gelatin is completely dissolved. Add the cream cheese and process to blend.

Transfer the mixture to a large bowl and stir in the chilled soda. Whisk in the whipped topping.

Pour mixture into a 3-quart bowl and refrigerate, covered, 4 hours or until firm.
