Because it's winter break and I've had some more free time than usual, I've been in the mood to cook and bake.  I was looking for recipes for brownies and pies, but realized how high in sugar and carbohydrates desserts can be.  Making sure that foods are low in sugar and carbs is extremely important for diabetics because it affects how much insulin they need to give themselves.  Also, consuming large amounts of sweets can cause a spike in blood sugar levels.  
So, I found a great website that has tons of recipes (including great desserts) geared towards healthy eating for diabetics.  The recipes are lower in sugar and carbohydrates, and the website lists all the nutritional information.  Maybe you could make some of these recipes for someone you know with diabetes!  I think I'm going to start out with the double chocolate brownies that use applesauce.
