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 cup natural peanut butter
1 cup Splenda Granular
1 large egg
1 tbsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper; set aside.

Combine all ingredients on low speed of an electric mixer until well combined.

Place approximately 1 1/2 tablespoons of dough per cookie 1 1/2-inches apart on the prepared cookie sheet. Flatten with the tines of a fork to make a criss-cross pattern.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown around the edges. Remove from oven and leave on cookie sheet a couple of minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
