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.

2 medium-size apples, sliced
2 medium oranges, peeled, cut into segments
Fresh strawberries and pineapple chunks are also good dipping options.

In a small saucepan, heat the chocolate chips and milk together over very low heat; stir until melted and smooth. Stir in the nuts; cook 1 minute.

Pour fondue into a fondue pot or serving dish. Serve immediately with the fruits for dipping.
