Hello there and welcome to The Bonnie Fig!
I'm Melissa, the baker and creator behind The Bonnie Fig. I am a nurse turned food blogger and content creator, based in sunny Southern California. My family and I reside 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 working on my blog, I enjoy spending time with family, trying new foods, working on house projects, navigating motherhood as a new mom to the sweetest baby girl, 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!
