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 cooking this week?!

Hello everyone!

What is going on with the weather?! I must say I'm getting fed up with not knowing what to wear & you just don't expect that in October/November! Never mind it hasn't kept me out of the kitchen & I have just put on some lovely new recipes for you to try!

First up is my Tuna Pie, it's quick, easy & cheap so great for a weeknight dinner. Next is great meat free dish, Spinach & Blue Cheese Gnocchi lovely & creamy & again great for nights when you don't to spend too much time in the kitchen! I was inspired by a bargain I found in Lidl recently for my next newbie, their croissants are only 69p for 4 & I made my Gooey Choc Chip Pudding with them!

Finally this week I have made some changes to "Occasions" & added a section called "Party Food". I shuffled a few of my older recipes into this new section & added a new one-my Bacon & Blue Cheese Bites are incredibly moreish & didn't last long in the CCC kitchen the first time I tested them!


As well as Facebook & Twitter I'm also on Instagram & Pintrest! Oh & I now have my very own YouTube channel, just click on the link below to check it out!
