Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Cookies

Am I the only one who ate a whole lot of PB&J as a kid? Today is all about PB&J sandwiches. Of the cookie variety, that is. Last night, Kobe and I made peanut butter and jelly (and chocolate frosting) cookies. Even though we spend a lot of time together, Kobe and I have found […]

Persian Pistachio Ice Cream – Low Sugar Version

Wrapping up my series on Persian food for Type 2 diabetics, will be a recipe for Persian ice cream. Persian Pistachio Ice Cream – or Bastani as it is called in Farsi – is always the same combination of flavors. Vanilla ice cream, pistachios, rosewater flavoring, a subtle hint of saffron, and then bits of […]

Mocha Almond Madness Ice Cream

One of the principal ideas here at The Diabetic Kitchen and Cook is that eating for Type 2 Diabetes should not be boring, or lacking in flavor. This recipe for homemade ice cream proves just that. Mocha Almond Madness Ice Cream is a decadent combination of intense chocolate flavor, rich creaminess, and crunchy almonds that […]
