About Me




I'm Sarah Winkle, keen home cook & creator of budget friendly food! Originally from Portsmouth I now live in the beautiful county of Staffordshire with my husband Steve & our cat Cleo. 



When I'm not in my kitchen I'm at work doing my proper job as a Dental Nurse which I have been doing for almost 30 years! 

Apart from cooking, in our spare time Steve & I love going to food festivals, rock gigs, walking in the stunning Staffordshire countryside & spending time with our families & friends...oh & Miss Cleo!


...& if you were wondering about the spelling of the title, my maiden name was...Cooke!!


Around the time of the last recession Steve & I were working on a website together when I decided to share a couple of my tried & tested recipes. They attracted some attention & so after thinking up a name The Credit Crunch Cooke was born!
