Kimberly Nichols @KimmysKreations 

Nichols is a favorite of ours and she can do just about anything. With 2.8 million followers on TikTok and more than 52 million likes, it’s safe to say we’re not the only ones who love to watch her content. From recommendations for kitchen gadgets to quick and easy items like Bang Bang shrimp, she covers it all. We even love to tune in for her burgeoning cake making skills which presentation wise, will put whatever we’ve been doing over the years to shame. Head over to Nichols’ page and get everything from appetizers to dessert.
