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. 


When I'm not cooking or working at my "proper job" Steve & I love to go to food festivals & I have been lucky enough to demo at one! We also like walking, going to gigs, growing our own veg & spending time with our families & friends.

...& 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!
