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 pkg (8 oz) light cream cheese, softened 

6 oz sugar-free chocolate pieces, melted
3/4 cup sugar-free cookies ie vanilla wafers or shortbread, crushed into crumbs
1/4 cup sugar-free strawberry preserves, seedless or strained
chopped plain almonds or pecans for rolling

Combine the melted chocolate with the softened cream cheese and mix until blended. Stir in cookie crumbs and preserves. Chill overnight. 

Remove from refrigerator and shape into 1-inch sized balls. Roll balls in the crushed nuts.

Note: May substitute cocoa powder for the nuts, if desired. Remember, however, that nuts are very healthy for diabetics.
