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.

Diabetics often come across recipes calling for powdered sugar. You can make your own substitute for powdered sugar that works very well in recipes. 

3/4 cup of Splenda Granular
2 tablespoons cornstarch

Place both ingredients in a blender and blend until it is a very fine powder. Use as you would powdered sugar.

0 grams of sugar and only 4 carbs per tablespoon.
