About me photo.


Hi, I’m Melissa

The passionate food enthusiast behind The Bonnie Fig. Welcome to my little corner of the internet where I share my love for all things delicious.

Born and raised in Salinas, California, an agricultural heartland, I’ve always been surrounded by an abundance of fresh produce. My grandparents, who emigrated from Mexico, instilled in me a deep appreciation for food and its roots. My grandpa, with his insatiable sweet tooth, was my earliest baking inspiration. Our shared moments over “cafe con cookies” are some of my fondest memories and a significant influence on my journey into food blogging.
