Ridge Rider News Welcomes New Local Columnist
"Hi, I’m Nicole! A year ago my family and I moved to the Shingletown area for fresh air, quiet nights and friendly folks. I am happy to report that I have found all three!
I work from home as a recipe developer, food photographer and blogger. 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?
You can find more delicious recipe creations on my website, wonkywonderful.com."

Nicole Harris will be sharing her favorite recipes with us and will be teaming up with her daughter, Syd, for Craft Corner every week.
Everyone here at Ridge Rider News is excited to have her on board!
