Shortly after Little Brother was diagnosed with diabetes, I received a message from my friend Katharine Grubb (she’s also an author! You should read her books!)
She was urging me to begin a new project. As if I need more new projects. She wanted me to use the information I was gathering about cooking for my Type 1 Diabetic child and share it with others who could use it.
I knew she was right, but I had to let some things settle in first. Finally, yesterday, I took the plunge and pressed the “publish” button on my new cooking blog.
Cook and Count has the carb-per-serving count for each recipe I feature. I also plan to include Little Brother’s story as well as other things we learn about dealing with diabetes as a family.
I taught FIRST grade the other day when they needed a substitute at school! I used to teach first-grade Spanish, but I had a new batch of kiddos every 35 minutes. All day long is another story entirely, but we had a great day. Best line of the day, after I wrote my name on the blackboard: “I can’t say your name! It has too many words!”
I’m taking advantage of the better weather (and lack of early-morning ice)–I got to Mass twice this week and the gym once. I’m hoping to do better on both counts, but it’s a start.

A new blog sounds awesome! I didn’t know you create recipes for Type 1 Diabetes, but I am interested in checking it out!
Jeannie, it’s not so much that I’m “creating recipes for diabetics” but instead I’m making the recipes we already love work for a diabetic–calculating the carb count, etc. They taught us in the hospital that we should keep eating the way we already do, if we’re eating fairly healthy already. But it’s a pain to add up all the ingredients every single time I cook; this way I’m keeping it all in one place, and whether you’re diabetic or not, these are family-friendly and simple recipes.
[…] February, I started my new cooking blog. Have you visited it? You don’t have to be diabetic to enjoy the recipes I share at Cook and […]
