Croatian cuisine is different from that found in many other parts of Europe, yet it is influenced by many countries in the region. Would you like to learn to cook authentic Croatian recipes? This cookbook will help teach you how!

The traditional cuisine of Croatia is based to a great extent on grilling as a means to give meat and fish new flavor.

Now that she is a mother, it is more important than ever to make sure that healthy food is available to the next generation. She hopes to become a household name in cookbooks for her delicious recipes, and healthy outlook.Martha is now living in California with her high school sweetheart, and now husband, John, as well as their infant daughter Isabel, and two dogs; Daisy and Sandy.
