Dijon mustard grilled steaks & pasta with garlic mashed potatoes

When it comes to a great steak, it’s all about the perfect seasoning. For the last couple of months every time I’ve made pork steaks, I used dijon mustard combined with other seasonings as a basis for a spicy marinade. Turns out it’s an amazing idea, everyone loved it so far as it brings out…

Summer stir-fry

It’s funny how I always think of summer when the weather is bad outside or the temperatures are so low that they’re keeping me from going outside. As it turns out, Zagreb is covered in snow at the moment and temperatures are below 0. The only time I left my apartment this week was when…

Beef stew

I know that fruit and vegetables I’m buying are fresh, healthy and delicious. Fruit and vegetables aren’t the only two from local vendors, cheese, eggs, dairy products, even bacon. For me that is one…
