The Uncomplicated Kitchen Formula: 3 Steps to Easing the Stress of Weeknight Cooking

Weeknights as a busy mom don’t have to suck. 

You don’t have to feel like you’ve only got time to throw some chicken nuggets on a sheet pan and call for delivery food after the kids have gone to bed.

You can feel on top of your meal planning, on top of your weeknights, in charge of your routines- without taking a ton of time to do it all.

You can feel present with your kids in the hours between getting home and bedtime.


You can feel like your to-do list isn’t crushing you.

Uncomplicated Kitchen can show you how! 


s a working mom, you know first hand the struggle to find balance in your life.
But it still feels like you’re riding the struggle bus,

You can pin recipes, save chore sheets, ask your friends… but feel as though you can’t put the pieces together enough to feel like you’ve got it all at least somewhat figured out.

You know what? ‘Balance’ is a myth.

Some days you’ll be on top of the world, and some days you’ll give the kids Cheezits for dinner while you hide in the bathroom eating ice cream.

But there IS a way to feel like you’ve got a handle on things!

It’s taking the “WHAT” (recipes, meal plans, organizational charts)

…..and pairing it with the “HOW” (how does this work with my schedule, how is the best way for my family to do this, how can I get this done the best way according to my style)

And it’s figuring it all out in a community of like-minded women who are going through the same things.

Because here’s the other truth: It doesn’t have to be this hard.

It is possible to feel like you’re not alone in this, like there are answers that work.

And in our busy lives, when it feels as though we have too many balls in the air and not enough hands to catch them, it doesn’t have to take a ton of time to figure out, either.

I’ll show you how.

Uncomplicated Kitchen made up of 3 proven steps that work to get your kitchen a place of calm… not irritation.

Step-by-step, we’ll go figure out the best ways and strategies that work with your family, with your schedule, and with your strengths and weaknesses.

What’s more? You don’t have a ton of time to spend sitting in front of a course, watching videos, taking notes.

Uncomplicated Kitchen is built with your busy schedule in mind, with fill-in-the-blank worksheets, courses on audio file so you can listen on your commute or multi-tasking, and short and sweet sections that don’t take ages to work through.

The systems and strategies I share inside Uncomplicated Kitchen will get you going from saying “I’m so overwhelmed” to feeling like, “I got this.” 

By using challenges, tutorials, expert speaker talks, and access to a community of women going through the same things you are, you’ll move through the course feeling like you’re not only finally figuring things out, but that you have a tribe of supportive friends cheering you on.

Put simply this is a space built for working parents, stressed out moms and dads who wish they could cook better but don’t feel like they ever have the time to even shower let alone meal plan.

Through it all, I’ll be with you.
I’m Ruthy. You know me from Percolate Kitchen and the Facebook group Meal Planning Junkies. I’m on a mission to make working families feel less overwhelmed in the kitchen and more organized in their daily life.

I live in NYC with my 2 young kids and a husband who works a demanding job. I run my own business out of my home by night and teach cooking classes by day.

We don’t have any family nearby, so I know firsthand the power of a strong community and the struggle it takes to raise a family while building a career all at the same time.

My secret sauce? The knowledge that we’re all different, and the key is finding what works for you.

Not just anybody; you.
