About Jamie


I’m Jamie and welcome to A Sassy Spoon!

Food has always been a big part of my life but I didn’t realize my love for food was so strong until my love for digital media made its debut a few years ago. See, I’ve practically lived online since I was an obnoxious teen with dial-up. Once I finally changed careers a few years ago, I began working as a social media strategist creating online content for culinary clients and slowly falling in love with the online food world.

I was born and raised in South Florida, the mecca of Hispanic food and the land of wearing flip flops all year long because what are seasons? I grew up watching my Cuban mom cook for my family and use “un poquito” (Spanish for “a little bit”) as her measurement of choice. And even though I was always surrounded by AMAZING foods of all kinds, there was a point in my life where I only ate chicken fingers. True story. Everyday. Chicken Fingers. My parents were concerned.

Thankfully, as I got older, I began expanding my palate, being a tourist in my own city, traveling, and creating my own variations of the foods I had tried and loved. A Sassy Spoon is an extension of all my passions and an exciting new chapter for my career. Whether on a road trip or in the kitchen, I’m probably planning my next recipe or next trip…and then sharing it with you!


A Sassy Spoon is a resource for simple, healthy-ish recipes with some serious Miami flair! Obviously, right? I reside in a tropical (read: humid) paradise so it’s only natural that the fresh, summery, bold flavors of Miami would make an appearance on this blog!

What exactly is Miami flair? Think fresh ingredients, lots of spices, the use of citrus and sweet tropical fruits like guava or mango, plenty of seafood, and tons of flavor!

I aim for recipes that are ready in less than 40 minutes (who has time to be in the kitchen all day?!). I’m also a firm believer in balance because dessert is LIFE. When I’m not developing recipes, I’m talking about all the food I ate while traveling. Ya know, for those of us that travel just to eat. Oh, am I the only one that does that? Oops. ;)

This blog is ever changing, evolving, and growing but most importantly, it’s a place where we can all connect, be inspired and celebrate our love for food. If there’s anything else that you’d love to see on this blog, email me at info@asassyspoon.com.
