Yours Truly


Hi There, I’m Nicole . . . Welcome to WonkyWonderful!

I am the Mother of a free-spirited daughter and senior citizen pug dog.  We live in beautiful Northern California.  Family, sunshine and good food . . . I am a lucky girl!

I am your average food obsessed gal, always thinking about my next tasty bite.  Plotting and planning new and creative ways to prepare food for my family.

I am a self taught cook that loves to experiment in the kitchen.  My cooking obsession began in 2011 when I committed to a life of sobriety.  Anyone that goes from drinking heavily to sober living knows that there is a lot of extra time to fill.  Especially in the evenings.  You know the saying: Idle hands are the Devil’s workshop.  I made sure to stay busy.

I spent much of my time in my kitchen creating recipes and experimenting with ingredients.  Creating WonkyWonderful was also one of my new hobbies to fill my time.  So my new found love of food and my blog came together as if it were meant to be.

I’m not one to usually believe in fate or the stars being aligned.  But if you had told anyone that knew me before 2011 that I would 1. Be Sober 2. Enjoy Cooking and 3. Create and Manage a Website . . . well, they would have laughed in your face.  I would have too.

It is weird how things turn out and the direction that life takes you.  I was blessed to be given this opportunity to do something so rewarding.  Isn’t it great when you are given something that you didn’t even know you wanted?

I truly appreciate all of you that take the time to visit my site!

I hope you decide to join me on my Wonky and Wonderful journey . . . and find something inspiring along the way.
