If you're like me, you love to eat. I dearly love homemade soup served with delicious, warm bread and my favorite, oatmeal-raisin cookies. Just because you or a family member have diabetes doesn't have to change that. In fact, having diabetes will make you aware of what you eat and when you eat it, so you can enjoy your food more than ever. A bit of planning and really tasty recipes can be a big help. Knowing that, we've created this issue of Most Requested Recipes'". And the entire family will enjoy them, so you don't have to make separate meals. Check out the cozy casseroles, like Nacho Chicken Casserole (p. 19) or Italian-Style Shepherd's Pie (p. 20). If you're in the mood to try something new, Graham-Crusted Tilapia (p. 33) is easy and delicious. Warm yourself on a chilly night with steaming bowls of Italian Chicken Noodle Soup (p. 51) served with homemade, easy Three-Seed Flatbread (p. 85).

Dessert, anyone? Choose the familiar with a twist, Double-Banana Bread (p. 84) or try a dramatic, layered dessert, Mexican Chocolate-Raspberry Parfaits (p. 92) for an easy, yet refreshing change.

With these delicious choices, the hardest part of eating for diabetes may just be which recipes to make. The best part is that you'll feel better, and have the sound mind that your whole family is eating well.
