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! 





Get going with my Getting Started section, where you will find out how to make the most of your kitchen & store cupboard & how to Plan-Shop-Cook-Save The Credit Crunch Cooke way!!




Once you are ready go & check out my recipes! There is something for everyone-family favourites, meat free options & delicious puds & cakes. I've even catered for special occasions, because why should you miss out when you're on  a budget?



When I'm not at work or in the kitchen I blog about all sorts of stuff & you can read all about it in Mrs Winkle's Blog. You'll find anything from new products I've tried, places I've visited & maybe the odd restaurant review in the future! Cleo the cat will probably make an appearance but that's because she is a bit of a diva & likes the attention! (Actually I blog when I'm at work but don't tell anyone!)

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!!  

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!



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!
