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 egg whites
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup Splenda Sugar Blend

In a large mixer bowl, combine egg whites, cream of tartar and vanilla; beat at high speed until foamy. Gradually add Splenda, one tablespoon at a time, beating constantly until Splenda is dissolved and meringue forms stiff peaks. Spread over cream pie filling and bake at 275 until lightly browned.
