National Diabetes Month

There isn't a cure yet for diabetes, but a healthy lifestyle can really reduce its impact on your life. What you do every day makes the difference: eating a healthy diet, being physically active, taking medicines if prescribed, and keeping health care appointments to stay on track. More than 30 million U.S. adults have diabetes—and 1 out of 4 of them don't know they have it. At least 1 out of 3 people will develop diabetes in their lifetime. Medical costs for people with diabetes are twice as high as for people without diabetes. Risk of death for adults with diabetes is 50% higher than for adults without diabetes.

For the sauce, in blender or food processor, blend 1 cup raspberries, confectioners’ sugar, lemon juice and 2 tablespoons water until smooth. Press raspberry sauce through fine sieve; discard seeds. To serve, drizzle sauce over cheesecakes. Garnish with remaining ½ cup raspberries.

In a small bowl combine remaining lemon juice, vinegar, generous amount of pepper and salt. This will serve as a dressing for chicken legs.
