Not long ago I read about another fun blogging idea in the Diabetes Online Community called D-Feast Friday. It was conceived by Elizabeth, Lorraine and Karen, and the idea is for bloggers in the DOC to post diabetes-friendly recipes on Friday, July 23rd. I think it’s a great idea and I fully intended to participate. But, thanks to the nasty plague that’s been…uh…”plaguing” my home, all of my best intentions are flying out the window these days.
So instead of posting a recipe on Friday the 23rd, I’m sort of posting a recipe on sort of Friday the 23rd. By that I mean I’m posting some links to a few of my favourite recipes, instead of posting my own recipes, and I’m doing it on the Sunday the 25th instead of Friday the 23rd. I hope there’s another D-Feast Friday sometime because I will happily make it up to Elizabeth, Lorraine, and Karen – and you blog-reading folks – and fully participate (with photos) next time!
My favourite diabetes-friendly recipes come from the wonderful Chef Barrae. You may remember that I posted about her Applesauce Muffins a few months ago here. Along the lines of baking, I also highly recommend her Almond All-Butter Pound Cake and her Lucious Lemon-Poppy Mini-Muffins.
If you’re more interested in a dinner recipe than baking, her Chicken Stuffed with Brie, Apples and Walnuts with Balsamic Drizzle is fantastic!
Of course, if you’d just like a chilly summer treat, there’s always Kerri’s carb-free, gluten-free recipe. 🙂

Next time I’ll be more creative…I promise!
