Here at Kimble's there are many things that we enjoy, one of these being cooking delicious food for our customers. We felt like it wouldn't be right to keep all of this goodness to ourselves. In 2018, the Kimble's crew teamed up with the United Way of West Georgia, Inc. to publish "Cooking With Kimble's Food By Design: Good People Sharing Good Food!" This was a way for us to begin sharing some of our best recipes with one another, and now we want to share with you! Kimble’s is starting a Kimble’s Cookbook series where we let you guys in on some of our most delicious secrets. We hope you enjoy Kimble’s Cookbook as much as we do!
