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?!

Hi everyone! Well September is upon us now so I hope you've all had a great summer! Now the kids are back to school & we're all getting back into our normal routines again don't forget your menu planning!

I have started going through my older recipes & re-doing the photos, I think they're looking good! So far I have replaced the photos for Sausage & Mushroom Pasta, Dad's Favourite Cottage Pie, Fill-You-Up-Fish Pie, Credit Crunch Cookies & Simple Victoria Sponge...Phew! I hope you like them & there will be more to come!

I have only added one newbie this week but it's a goodie! My Mediterranean Chicken Traybake is delicious as well as easy & is great for a weeknight dinner!

I've got lots planned for the next few months & I'm very excited! My latest project is my new YouTube channel! At the moment there is only one video on there but I will be adding to it as soon as I can (It was quite fun!) Click the link below to go to my channel & you can subscribe to it too!!

Have a great week folks!
