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!
ABOUT THE BLOG
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!
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 email@example.com.
Thank you for being here! <3
