Shrimp in a French Lemon White Wine Cream Sauce

This is an elegant meal you can serve to company or even just for a romantic meal at home. I served this with haricot vert (roasted French green beans). That kept the meal totally low carb.

Dieter Angela’s Ground Turkey “Meatzza” Crust

Angela says, "I love pizza, so I was looking for alternatives. I was disappointed to find cauliflower crust is not much lower in carbs than a traditional pizza crust. I came across that recipe for a meatzza crust and was pleasantly surprised. It satisfied my pizza craving, and I could have a slice of pizza without needing a fork! For those pizza cravings, here’s a recipe for a meatzza crust."

American Amatriciana

Amatriciana is an Italian dish. Simple and traditional. I am calling this American Amatriciana because the Italian version is made with guanciale or pancetta. I make mine with good ole’ American bacon. This is one of my husband’s favorite dishes. I hope you love it too.

Super Easy Kung Pao Meatballs

This meal comes together in a MINUTE – or at least it feels like it. I made this for Saturday night movie night and it was a hit!

Grilled Shrimp “Scampi”

Grilled shrimp is a delicious summer treat. Enjoy this easy and tasty recipe!

Creamy, Cheesy, Garlicky Shrimp

This dish tastes very much like Shrimp Scampi that you might order in an Italian restaurant. The addition of cheese takes it over the top in terms of BIG YUM.

Lamb Kebabs (Z3 Version)

A ZReboot version of a ZReduction classic. If you like lamb, this recipe is a home run.

Roasted Carrots

Roast carrots are easy to make and taste good every time. If you can splurge on fresh herbs, it will be well worth it. 

Caramelized Brussels Sprouts with Pepperoni Bits (or Bacon)

Another Happy Healthy Holidays classic. This is so easy it almost feels like cheating.

Crab-Stuffed Mushrooms

My husband found this recipe and made it for me. It was delicious! I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Shrimp Scampi (ZReboot Version)

What will take the longest with this dish is peeling and taking the shells off the shrimp. You want fresh shrimp though and I’ll teach you how to boil down the shells to make it super-tasty. A deeper flavor is the bonus.

Italian Sausage Soup (ZReboot Version)

This simple Italian Soup is packed with flavor and convenience. It travels well and heats in the microwave too. Leftovers are a BIG YUM.

Asian Chicken with Veggie Slaw (ZReboot Version)

This looks like a lot of ingredients, but you’ll see it’s sort of a dump and cook recipe. Not difficult at all. If you love making Asian food you probably have many of these ingredients in the house. 

Italian Sausage and Zucchini Bake

This is sort of one of those dump casseroles that come together quickly and doesn’t require a lot of effort or dishes.

Celery Apple Salad

Serves four as a side dish. With the addition of a protein, this could easily serve two as an entrée. Consider things like cold-cooked shrimp, shredded cooked chicken, or even cold sliced steak. Perfect for a warm day.

Burger Stuffed Onions

Truth be told I made this dish for my husband. He LOVES roasted onions. I had a craving for a burger, so this fit the bill. How much burger will fit in your onion depends on how big the onion is and how well you scoop it out.

Veggie Stir Fry (EASY)

This colorful dish is super simple to make. You can include whatever assortment of veggies you like. I’ll give you a list of suggested options. You can serve this with something cooked on the grill; chicken, fish, or even steak.

Chicken and Green Chilies Casserole

This chicken casserole will remind you of chilies Rellenos. If you like those you’ll be a big fan of this low-carb dish. Simple to put together and toss in the oven. And Voila! Dinner. I serve with slices of avocado on the side dusted with a bit of grated sea salt.

Chicken Scallopini

A traditional Italian meal made the Plan Z way. My husband declared this one of his favorite meals of the year.

Cajun Butter Steak

My version of this steak is done by searing and roasting the meat. You can also choose to do this on the grill. Choose your favorite steak cut. It was a special occasion at our place, so I used beef tenderloin.
