About/Contact


 Hi, I’m Kelli and I’m from Sonoma County, California. I started Made in Sonoma as a way to share recipes with my family. I mainly wanted to be able to show my Nanny what I was cooking. I was also commenting on so many other blogs that I decided I should start my own and share with everyone what I cook.

My cooking background started when I was about 15. I was obsessed with Rachael Ray and her 30 Minute Meals. Yes, the Food Network really got me into cooking. I cooked for my family about 5 nights a week, and decided I wanted to attend culinary school after high school. I received my AA in Culinary Arts in December 2007. Although I don’t currently work in the industry, I truly love cooking and baking and imagine myself doing it until the day I die.

Made in Sonoma has really turned into a great hobby. I love trying new recipes and sharing them. On my blog, you'll mostly find recipes that I've successfully cooked after work. Therefore most of them don't require too much time. I’ve also started taking more pictures again which is always a work in progress. I love sharing Brew Reviews in hopes that people will learn about the vastly large world of craft beer. You might also see snapshots of life around the wine country with friends, family, my husband, and of course, our yellow lab, Ryder.

Thank you for stopping by Made in Sonoma!

    Some day you'll have to come visit!

    I am a fan of wine and I love going wine tasting but I need to try more wineries around here ASAP! My boyfriend and I occasionally have "Wine Night" where we drink a new bottle together - so fun!

  13. Just wandered onto your blog via ELR. Yay for a Nor Cal blogger! I'm in the South Bay :) I love beer, wine and food too. Haha. I especially love local brews. If you ever make it to San Diego County, you must check out the brews down there. So many breweries with so many amazing beers on tap :D

  14. Hello! Just found your blog and can't wait to read some beer reviews! I'm a big beer fan too and in fact have a rampant homebrewing hobby. Homebrewed beer is some of the best beer I've ever tasted! It's truly incredible. Have you ever made your own?

    All the best!

    1. I'll have to check your blog out. I love comparing Sonoma County to other places to live. I think I'd like to retire in Truckee, CA, near the Sierra's. :)
