Hi busy friends!
Longtime readers of Percolate Kitchen may have noticed the slight change up with the newsletter from this year to last.
Where I used to put everything here in the online version of the newsletter and then sent out a link when it was ready (and kept it hidden behind a password that only subscribers know).
Now I just email out my favorite links, recipes, food discounts and deals, and cool foodie articles in the weekly email., and keep a roundup of PK-centric news and recipes here on the site.
Not a subscriber and want to know what you missed in this week’s email?
- I shared a handful of crockpot “dump dinner” meals, where you just drop a bag of frozen ingredients you’ve already prepared into your crockpot or Instant Pot and then BOOM, there’s dinner.
- Plus the recipes on my meal plan this week
- How NY bagels are made
- What’s up with Diet Coke lately
- A cheap version of the Instant Pot on sale this week at Target
- A new-subscriber discount for Butcher Box (that grassfed beef delivery service it seems everyone is talking about) plus my own hilarious wit and wisdom.
- And more! (Sign up here)

Other than that, below are the things from PK world you may have missed this week!
PERCOLATE KITCHEN RECIPES:
When it’s freaking ice cold outside and you feel like cranking the heat up and enjoying wintery produce topped with a tangy, zesty vinaigrette, this salad is your jam.
It’s remarkably easy to make chocolate pudding from scratch- but it’s so delectably ‘fancy’ that its perfect for a special dessert, like Valentine’s Day or an anniversary.
This pudding is made with dark chocolate and sprinkles of pink Himalayan sea salt, but I also include instructions for plain old milk chocolate pudding as well!
Another awesome snack or party food- these skewers are crazy easy to make and incredibly addicting to eat. They’re perfect for a Superbowl party, so make sure you bookmark it or pin it to Pinterest!
LATELY, ON SOCIAL MEDIA…
True life: this isn't a recent picture. It's from the summer, back when it was warm and sunny and not freezing outside, and asparagus was in season. So here's a throwback, just so I can remember what warm bare shoulders feels like. I was rejoicing because it's not negative ten billion degrees today. Just warmer than freezing at around 41 #40DegreesFeelsWarmToday . #foodgawker @thefeedfeed #buzzfeedfood #buzzfeeddiy #sweetmagazine #kitchenbowl #gloobyfood #myfoodgasm #donutscookiesandcream #teamchomp #sugarandclothloves #goopmake #ignyc #eatingfortheinsta #foodblogfeed #storyofmytable #psfoodcrush #inseasonnow #abmfoodie #foodiesofinstagram #forkfeed #saveurmag #eateria #buzzfeedfood #easyrecipes #eatrealfood #realfood
WHAT’S THE HAPS
Kim from the Connected Chef and I had so much fun hosting a one-off cooking class in December that we decided to do it again- as a four-part series! the classes will run for 4 Sundays afternoons in a row, starting this January 14th and ending February 4th.
Bring your kids along (ages 4 and up) and learn knife skills, seasonings, make-ahead meals, snacks, and more over the course of 4 weeks. Kids will also get their very own apron to take home! More info is here, on the Connected Kitchen Eventbrite page.
BUSY MAMA? TINY ASS KITCHEN? YOU’LL LOVE THIS GROUP!
I’ve started a new Facebook community for those of us who are stressed out, tired, busy as all get out and dealing with teeny tiny kitchens.
Does this describe you? It’s hard enough balancing the juggling act of childcare, making dinner, and organizing groceries and kitchen gadgets in your cupboards and pantry…. but doing it all in an itty bitty kitchen with like 3 feet of counter space is even harder.
THAT’S IT FOR THIS ISSUE, BUDS!
