Father's Day and FREE Shipping!


Father's Day has always been a special holiday for me. I grew up with the best Dad in the world. I bought him mugs and soap-on-the-rope that said just that. And then just over 2 years ago the Best Dad in the World died, leaving me without my Dad and my daughters without their only Grandfather. Luckily, my daughters have the next best Dad in the world, my husband. I feel pretty lucky to have found a partner for life who is so much like my Dad and is a wonderful father to our girls.

My Dad loved sweet treats and he is the inspiration for all that I craft and create at Kimberley's Kitchen. From Rocky Road marshmallows, to gourmet s'mores, to peanut brittle, all of my ideas and creations are inspired by what he loved. 

One of my best-selling products from the first day of business has been Dad's Peanut Brittle. This is the recipe he used and loved. It is a classic brittle recipe with lots of butter and salty peanuts. I think he would be very pleased to see that it is still a best-seller and one of my most requested products. 

I have crafted fresh batches just in time for Father's Day. It is perfect for giving or snacking or sharing. However you enjoy it, know that it comes from the heart of my family to you. 


As an extra special treat, I am launching FREE SHIPPING on all orders over $50!!! This is very exciting for me and I can't wait to send you delicious treats. Visit my online SHOP to see more!

Happy Father's Day!

The Kitchen Reveal!


The Kitchen is finished! Well, it has been finished since April but I have been so busy that I haven't had time to even stop and blog. So, here is my final post about my Kitchen build.

First of all, thank you to everyone who backed this project, built the kitchen, and gave generous support along the way. It has been an amazing experience and I am truly grateful to every one of you. I want to thank all of my backers, our friends and neighbors who donated time, tools, and talent to actually help us build it, the support of our community and Village, our health inspector from Northern Health for providing guidance along the way (and eventually passing our inspection!), and all of the media that helped to get the word out and support my little candy company.

As some of you may know, we were slightly delayed because of the sink. The sink! But it all worked out in the end and I learned to go with the flow and trust that it was all going to be okay. And it is.

I love my working space. Creating a workplace that reflects me, my values, and everything that my company is about was extremely important to me. I have learned, now that I have been working in my Kitchen, just how important it is to do work in a positive, uplifting space. My Kitchen is small, but it is more than adequate for the work that I do. I enjoy going to work in this space and I love crafting organic goodness for all of my customers.

Please visit my blog, website, and social media often for more information on new products, retailers, and recipes. I look forward to bringing you more delicious treats!

Thank you,
Kimberley

S'more Summer



It seems that summer has arrived early here in Northern BC. All I can think about is camping and s'mores. Thanks to my amazing Kickstarter Backers, the KITCHEN is done! I am moving in and the inspection is scheduled. Very exciting times!

We have many new wholesale customers ordering our amazing S'mores for Four kits and I am thrilled that more people will get to enjoy these delightfully decadent treats this summer. Each kit makes 4 huge gooey s'mores. Vanilla Bean marshmallows and organic graham crackers smothered in dark chocolate are nestled in a nice brown paper coffee bag, perfect for giving and taking camping. This is a special treat and not even close to the traditional s'mores ingredients from the grocery store.

Try some for your next evening campfire or give them to a friend. They will be gone before you can say "S'more, please!"
