Chocolate French Silk Dessert

Chill in your refrigerator until ready to eat. If you are going to serve it the next day cover it with plastic wrap.

Dauphinoise Potatoes (aka Potato Gratin)

Don’t let the name intimidate you.  This is a wonderful potato casserole from the southeast part of France.  Wonderful for holidays and dinner parties. 

Raspberry Pate de Fruit from Chef Josh

These are delightful little jellies. They taste so French and so fresh! Not like those little gum-balls you can buy at the candy store.

Green Bean Casserole

Just like the one your mom made, only healthier. Everyone loves the green bean casserole. Here I'll show you one one that doesn't take much longer to make and it’s real food, not processed!

Sea Salt Crusted Snap Peas

A variation of my sea salt crusted snow peas recipe - but with snap peas!

Caramel Sauce

An easy-to-make, low-carb caramel sauce. Wowza!

Baked Spinach and Artichoke Dip

Talk about comfort food. This is the pure definition. Thankfully fat doesn’t make you fat so you can eat this at parties and not feel the guilt.

Grilled Eggplant Parmesan

A nice, summery meal that can also be eaten in cooler months. You can make this in a grill pan or on an outdoor grill.  This is much lighter and lower carb than the breaded and fried version.

Blue Cheese Dressing

The first time I made this, I put it on top of a wedge salad...and felt like I was eating dinner in a steakhouse. It's that good.

Tipsy Plums with Sweet Cream

A simple, tasty seasonal desert.

Fruit Bowl with Luscious Lemon Cream Z3 Version

This stuff is addictive and so refreshing. RARELY do I take seconds on a dessert. With this one I did.

Luscious Lemon Cream

So light and decadent - YUM! Serve with fruit, or any other dessert for extra special deliciousness.

Barbecue Burgers – Zola Style

There’s no way to use a commercial sauce for barbecued meats. They ALL have copious amounts of sugar in them. I know. I checked every bottle in the store, so I set about to come up with a rub and a sugarless barbecue sauce for Plan Z.

Italian Lemon Chicken

This tastes almost like chicken scallopini. You’ll notice the breading is missing. The capers are missing. But the taste is still there.

Green Apple Protein Smoothie

I am a HUGE fan of Collagen Protein so that’s what’s in here that will keep you full and focused until your next meal. 

Strawberry Milkshake

I think this makes a beautiful, refreshing dessert. If you can’t get fresh strawberries go ahead and use frozen. Slices are best so they don’t get caught in the blender. For a special occasion top it with whipped cream! 

3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

These cookies are SOOOO good. And no flour! Just be careful what peanut butter you buy and be sure to order the sweetener ahead so you are prepared to bake and eat.

Collagen Fruit Smoothie

Collagen protein powder is not cheap but the health benefits are HUGE.

Cauliflower Mac and Cheese

You know how you can eat mac and cheese and not even use your teeth? This had the same result. BIG YUM!

My Best-Ever Stuffed Mushrooms

Just in time for football season or any other partying event. These won’t last long on your platter.

Thai Basil Chicken

This dish will be ready in about 20 minutes. All you have to do is a little chopping.

Alfredo Sauce

You can serve this over baked chicken, or make “fettuccini” alfredo with zucchini noodles.

Pecan Pie

This pie comes together easily, and your family will never know they aren’t eating the usual pecan pie pile of sugar.

Sugar Cookie Wedges

At a dinner party you can cut this into wedges and serve them on little dessert plates. My guests commented on how GREAT it was to be given a small dessert instead of the traditional, large one.

Bittersweet Chocolate Torte

The cake I’m offering up today will be on the menu come Christmas Day, as we have dinner with my family. I think I pretty well perfected it for a dinner last night.

Italian Shrimp Cocktail

This is what I call cheating when I’m in a hurry. I use my favorite bottled Italian dressing as the marinade and everyone thinks I put so much effort into this really pretty dish.

Monster Mouths

A ghoulish (and healthy) Halloween snack idea.

Chocolate Ganache

Sinfully delicious...with only three ingredients.

Fruit Smoothie

This smoothie recipe is a great breakfast drink for those on the go. It is also a great mid-afternoon snack for those who want to get more calories in ZReboot. It even makes a great dessert!

A Trio of Super-Simple Breakfast Casseroles

I'm thinking of starting a company called “Just Add Eggs.” Well, maybe I'm kidding but this just might be a theme for these breakfast casseroles. I made them all the same way.

Frozen Yogurt Bark

The final product must be eaten right out of the freezer. They melt fast but they are a fun treat.

Cinnamon Pear Infused Water

I discovered cinnamon water in Costa Rica. Try adding pear slices – it makes a wonderful summer treat.

Shrimp Fra Diavolo

This is a traditional Italian Dish that is known for spice. It’s also usually served over pasta so you’ll see that this one can be served as a stew in a bowl or over sautéed zucchini noodles.

Mushroom-Bacon Soup

I had a hankering for bacon. My husband wanted mushroom soup. And this recipe was born.

Broccoli Cheese Soup

I designed this broccoli cheese soup for the average cook. It only takes a few minutes to chop the veggies and then put it in the pot and let the magic happen. All you have to do is stir it. How easy is that?

Cinnamon Buttered Pecans

A tasty snack - perfect for a road trip.

Celery Salad with Dried Fruit, Nuts and Parmesan

Well, of course I’m not the only one who every dreamed of a celery salad so I found all kinds of them and formulated my own, simple version. Turned out great.

Egg Muffins

Easy to make and freezer friendly, egg muffin cups make for a great grab-and-go breakfast. I love switching up ingredients – I’ll do bacon, swiss, onion and spinach one time. Ham, cheddar and broccoli. Sausage, mozzarella, tomatoes and mushrooms. The possibilities are endless!

Fluffy, No Bake Lemon Cheesecake

I came up with this recipe as a tribute to Dieter Ron and his wife Jean. This darling couple drove from Wisconsin to Chicago just to meet me and my team.

Peach Parfait

The parfait is a serious twist on a Cooking Light recipe I came across, so I need to give them credit but I also wanted you to know it's light and rather healthy.

Jalapeno Popper Crisps

These easy to make Jalapeno poppers are Z3 friendly and only take 15 minutes!

Zola’s Favorite Breakfast Smoothie

Want to know how Zola starts her day? Well, here it is!

Simple Sangria

Refreshing and beautiful. This can be made with red wine, white wine, or I like the look of the rosé.

Whiskey Sour

I used to love whiskey sours made with frozen lemonade and Canadian Club. This is my new substitute.

Chicken Under a Brick

One of my favorite French bistro dishes is chicken under a brick. I decided I had to figure out how to make it myself. Most places make it in a wood burning oven. I don't have one so I had to make adjustments. It worked. I hope you like it and enjoy it.

Sweet Onion Casserole

This is a super easy side dish that can be mixed up in a flash and then baked. It will go well with any piece of roasted meat and can work on a buffet for a party.

Hot Brown Open-faced Sandwich

This is fast to make and is a wonderful comfort food addition to your recipes.

Dark Chocolate Peanut Clusters

These are delightfully decadent treats. A word of CAUTION: Treat them like candy!

Zucchini Fritters (or Pancakes)

Fried till golden using coconut flour.
