Back In The Kitchen

I love to cook. I love browsing through cookbooks and cooking websites, selecting the right ingredients at the store, and bringing the recipe to life in my kitchen. I find the whole process extremely therapeutic.  The last couple of months, though, I’ve lost my inspiration.

Even though I’ve always been a healthy eater, the diabetes diagnosis and the carb counting that came with it has made me nervous about I can and should eat. Instead of trying new recipes, I’ve been playing it safe (and boring), baking chicken, roasting vegetables and throwing together simple salads.

That’s why trying a new recipe today was so satisfying. I was in desperate need of something sweet and decided try the Brownie Cookie recipe from Diabetic Living. The cookies turned out absolutely delicious, and even though it was a simple recipe, it inspired me to start experimenting in the kitchen again.

  1. Hi! Welcome to the blogosphere! Glad to have you, and thank you for sharing your story with all of us!

    While I don’t do recipes much, I do find myself not experimenting too much. I think we feel safer that way, knowing (for the most part) how the food will affect us. But, while I’m at home, with lots of backup stuff to choose from, I should really try more new things. You never know!

  2. Thanks! It’s great to be here, surrounded by the supportive DOC. 🙂

    If you ever need recipe suggestions, I’m happy to give them! I love experimenting with food…and the D is just a new challenge to work with.
