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.

Place the potatoes and California Blend vegetables in a large nonstick skillet, cover, and cook about 8 minutes; stir occasionally. Add a tablespoon of water, if necessary.

Add the sliced Kielbasa to the skillet, replace the lid and cook for another 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender and dinner is heated through.

Turn off heat and stir in the seasoned salt.  Sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese before serving.
