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 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs

3 tbsp Splenda granulated
6 tbsp butter, melted

Combine crumbs and sugar in a medium bowl.  Stir in the melted butter until well blended.  Press mixture onto the bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie plate.  Chill 1 hour before filling with your favorite pie filling.

NOTE: This is not a sugar-free pie crust. The graham crackers have 6 grams of sugar per 5 tablespoon. By using the Splenda instead of sugar, this recipe becomes diabetic-friendly when filled with a sugar-free filling.
