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!

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.

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.

Cheeseburger Casserole

I found this recipe online. I didn’t have to do much to make it Zola. It tastes very much like a cheeseburger. The way to make it exciting though is to make sure you pile on the toppings that you like on your burger. You can feed the whole family with this and no one will miss the bun.

Instant Pot Corned Beef

When you buy corned beef, there is a little packet of corned beef spices that accompanies the brisket. The secret is to use that and ADD your own corned beef spices to the mix -- after you toast them.

Lockdown Chili (Z3.5 Version)

I thought – what better time to have a spicy chili than when I am in lockdown, practicing social distancing.

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.

Beefy ‘No Noodle’ Lasagna Casserole

This is a hearty and satisfying casserole for those who would love a traditional lasagna but know the noodles are not smart.

Zucchini Lasagna

This lasagna has no noodles. Standing in for the noodle layers are zucchini sliced the long way.

Cooked “Carpaccio” Salad

I did a cooked variation of this dish and served it as an entrée. Loved it.

Italian Sausage Zucchini Casserole

This dish is Italian comfort food. I curl up on sofa with a bowl of this and watch a movie. You can go totally low-carb with this one and make it without the pasta. Tastes just as good. This also makes a great casserole addition to a pot luck party.

Authentic Italian Meatballs

These meatballs are my take on an authentic meatball recipe from New York city. These actually have a cheesy element to them that make them super yummy. BIG YUM!

Mexican Meatloaf

A good old American favorite with a Mexican twist.

Harry O’s Sweetheart Pizzas

Radio DJ Harry O in Mason City, IA offers up his latest ZReboot recipe. Simple, yet delicious.

No Dough Pizza

This recipe was contributed by dieter Woody. He found it online on a low carb cooking website. It is now one of his favorite ways to eat pizza. Thanks for sharing, Woody!

Pizza Zola Style

I got this idea from an internet recipe. I hope you love it.

Chili and Cheese Omelet

This is recipe was contributed by our very own VP of Anger-management, Chris Lytle.

Tenderloin Steak with a Porcini Red Wine Sauce and Spinach Salad

This is a one-project, one-plate meal. Fancy enough for a dinner party and simple enough for a Tuesday night after work.

Tortilla-less Enchiladas

Efrem says, "I was really missing my Mexican food and wanted to recapture the tastes and flavors of some of my favorites, so I came up with this recipe."

Roasted Filet Mignon Steaks with Veggie Stuffed Tomatoes

The veggie stuffed tomatoes can be used with any protein, I just accompanied mine with steak. Very simple and very good. Enjoy!
