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.

1 (9-inch) unbaked sugar-free whole-wheat pie shell
1 jar (16-oz) unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp packed Splenda Brown Sugar Blend
4 large eggs
1/4 cup lemon juice from concentrate
2 tbsp butter, melted
1 tbsp white whole-wheat flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

In large mixer bowl, combine all ingredients except the pie shell and mix well. Pour into the pastry shell and bake at 425 degrees 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees and bake another 30 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near the edge comes out clean.

Cool to warm before cutting to serve. Best when served warm with whipped cream or a small scoop of sugar-free vanilla ice cream.
