Hello there and welcome to The Bonnie Fig!

I’m Melissa, the baker and creator behind The Bonnie Fig. I am a nurse by day and enjoy baking and creating content by night and on the weekends. I am based in Southern California in the beautiful wine country community known as Temecula.

My love for baking started at a very young age. My grandpa, Lelo as we called him, had the biggest sweet tooth! The way his face lit up when he saw whatever I had made, was priceless! Those are the memories that I hold dear and think fondly on whenever I am in the kitchen baking and developing new recipes.

My goals for this blog are to offer a wide variety of recipes to my community that vary in dietary preferences and skill levels. To inspire those with a love of food to get out there and create!

When I am not in the kitchen or at work, I enjoy spending time with family, friends and my dog, trying new foods, working on house projects, kickboxing, and watching UFC with my husband.

Feel free to reach out to me with any questions that you may have about any of the recipes or baking questions in general. I would love to get to know and connect with my readers. Happy baking!
