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


About Me & My Love of Food

I am the Mother of a free-spirited daughter and senior citizen pug dog.  We live in beautiful Northern California with an abundance of fresh produce and fantastic weather.  Family, Sunshine and Food . . . I am a lucky girl!

I am a try-anything-kind-of-gal. I love to travel, have new experiences and try different foods (no matter how questionable). <— I also have a cast iron stomach! My home is just outside of a gorgeous National Park where I live under a volcano (Yes, Really!). So, I spend a lot of time outdoors as well.

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. I spend my time creating recipes then testing them out on my family and friends. That either makes them lucky or unlucky depending on the day and the recipe!

I believe in eating healthy but not giving up CHEESE, CHOCOLATE or COFFEE! I call my diet HEALTHY-ISH. So, if you like to start your day with green juice and end it with chocolate . . . you are at the right place!

How WonkyWonderful Began

My cooking obsession began in 2012 when I created WonkyWonderful.  I decided it was time to step out of my comfort zone and try new things.  Opening myself up to opportunities and experiences has been amazing.

My love of food, creativity and blogging came together as if it were meant to be. Serendipity.

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.

There is no sincerer love than the love of food. – George Bernard Shaw
