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.

8 cups sliced fresh or frozen peaches
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 cup Splenda granulated
1 cup white-whole-wheat flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp Splenda granulated

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Place the peaches over the bottom of a 9 X 13-inch baking pan or dish; set aside.

Using an electric mixer, cream the butter and 1 cup Splenda. Add the flour and mix together well. Sprinkle the mixture over the peaches.

Stir the cinnamon and 1 1/2 teaspoon of Splenda together in a bowl until well combined; sprinkle overall.

Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour or until the topping is a golden brown.

Serve with sugar-free frozen yogurt, if desired.
