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?!

Well we have had typical British weather this weekend, I almost bought some flippers yesterday, never mind though it's given me a chance to add a bit more to the website! If you do get the opportunity to dust off the BBQ try my Tandoori Chicken Skewers they taste just as good cooked in the oven if the weather takes a turn for the worst!

As promised I have added to the Baking Beauties section a list of Baking Basics so now there is no excuse to get your bake on!

Have a great week everyone, whatever you're up to!
