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 lb ground beef

1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup fine whole-grain bread crumbs
2 eggs
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp chopped fresh parsley
Freshly ground black pepper to taste

1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup A-1 sauce
1/4 ketchup
1 tbsp Splenda brown sugar blend

To make the sauce, combine all the ingredients in a small saucepan. Heat on low, stirring often, until Splenda dissolves. Allow to simmer on low while you make the meatballs.

To make meatballs, in a medium mixing bowl combine all the ingredients and mix together well. Form into appetizer size meatballs. Spray a large skillet with non-stick cooking spray. Place meatballs, in a single layer, in heated skillet. Simmer on low heat until browned.

Mix sauce with the meatballs and keep warm in a chafing dish or slow cooker.
