baking change

It's been a very long time since my last post. Most of that time, I was not doing much in the way of cooking or baking. An occasional cake or a pan of brownies here and there, but no major baking. I don't even do a major dinner for Thanksgiving anymore.

And meanwhile, something has come up that has to change my way of cooking and baking. My son has been diagnosed as Type 2 diabetes. He is good with the oral medication and watching his carbs. But that also means I got to adapt what I do so I take his dietary restrictions into cooking and baking.

So now I begin to look for diabetic recipes. Haven't found too much of anything (he was diagnosed a bit over a month ago) but I have to really start looking hard soon, His birthday is in a few weeks and he has to decided between his beloved Cheeto cake, which, of course, has lots of sugar in it or another type of cake. It should be fun.
