Tasty easy recipes that dont break the bank


Hello & Welcome to the Credit Crunch Cooke! Simple recipes that are low on cost but high on flavour!

With the current state of the economy thrifty cooking is very important, did you know that the average household wastes about £480 worth of food a year?

Shocking isn't it?! Don't worry though, with some savvy shopping & cooking you can keep your purses & tummies full, & as someone who shops & cooks in the real world I can help! 

So whether your a family of four, cooking for one or a hard up student, get your cupboards stocked, put on your apron & head for the kitchen, because it's time for some Credit Crunch Cooking!!  

What's new this week?!

I've got another busy few days in the kitchen testing (& sampling!) more delicious recipes to share with you!

I've just added my scrummy Easter Cupcakes to the Occasions section, make them this weekend for the family! You could also try the Lemon & Blueberry Squares on the Baking Beauties page for an "eggstra" special afternoon tea! (Sorry had to do it!)

I've decided to add a new category this week, Pies etc will celebrate all the tasty pastry topped goodies we all love! The first recipe to grace it's page is Eve's Egg & Bacon Pie, my lovely Mum's recipe, just the smell of it cooking took me back to my childhood-nothing like a bit of nostalgia!!

Have a lovely Easter break everyone & happy Credit Crunch Cooking!


New addition!!

I've just decided to put on an extra recipe this weekend, try my Honey & Mustard Chicken one night this week-it's easier than you might think!


Don't forget if you have any money saving recipes or tips drop me an email here at  & I will add you to the "Cruncher Wall of Fame" page!
