Rare Cookbook Release

Table Tucker is my original fresh food cooking system. Cook three times every week. To access my once-a-month freezer cooking system please click the link here.

My new and improved annual DOLLAR DINNERS cooking system is launching soon. If you want to get your head around my cooking and saving methods you can grab entry to my older cookbook(online course) by clicking the button below. The price is $10. You'll save stacks and also get a discount when my new cooking system launches. Any groceries you invest in can be used in my new book - so you can hit the ground running when the time comes. Table Tucker is great if you want a break from bulk (freezer) cooking and cook different meals while organising for a new month.

Author spotlight

As a time-poor working mum Penina Petersen started writing her own cookbook, TABLE TUCKER, because she couldn’t find a product in the market that suited her needs. Penina needed a book that would not only save her family money, but that would also take away the hassle of figuring out what to have for dinner every night of the week. The book also needed to be healthy, budget, easy and quick. Penina Petersen’s system was an immediate sensation and the rest is history. Penina Petersen now writes for her blog the Savings Room and continues to make headlines at home in Australia and abroad with her new cooking system Dollar Dinners.

Readers Say

Table Tucker is a great planner….The menu planner tied in with the shopping list and pantry lists is a wonderful guide for avoiding waste, but having all of the basics at hand. And the meals are interesting & tasty! Highly recommended!

Patricia (Fishpond Review)

One of the best things I have done is get a copy of the book ‘Table Tucker’ by Penina Petersen.
So this book has weekly menus divided into Early summer, mid summer and late summer (same for Autumn, spring and Winter), The idea is you cook one night, and have the next night off. 

Ace Mummy (Essential Baby)

Great book! I don’t follow it to the letter but it certainly has saved time and stress over what to shop for and cook!
