Hi! I’m Jamie Silva, the recipe developer and food photographer behind A Sassy Spoon, a food blog for home cooks looking for approachable, lightened-up comfort food recipes made with fresh ingredients.
Born and raised from Cuban parents in South Florida, I’m a self-taught cook who loved watching Mami (mom) cook for the family as a kid. As a result, I now enjoy lightening up recipes inspired by my rich heritage as well as creating recipes inspired by my childhood, my travels and dining out experiences. From everyday recipes to Latin staples and sweet treats, there’s something here for everyone!
Aside from recipes, you’ll learn that I’m an 80’s kid with a millennial brain that grew up eating a lot of carbs in a Hispanic household. I also enjoy traveling, all things salty-sweet and, I’m beyond passionate about growing my blog business and helping you do that too!
My background is in digital marketing where I was a digital strategist for big time clients in the culinary space. Prior to that, I worked in the health care industry managing a team while climbing the corporate ladder. After a few career changes, I’m now able to work on this blog full-time! Read more about how I quit my job + became a food blogger. It’s a good story!
This blog is ever-changing, evolving, and growing. Most importantly, it’s a place where we can all connect, be inspired and celebrate our love for food. Thank you for celebrating with me!
A Sassy Spoon has been in the press!
What did you do before A Sassy Spoon?
I went from health care to ad agency life, working long hours with big-time clients in the digital marketing world, and now I work full-time on this blog. Learn more here!
Do you cook all these recipes?
Yep! I traded an office for a kitchen and I absolutely love developing sweet treats and lightened up comfort food recipes with fresh ingredients. Let’s work together!
Do you take your own photos?
Can we work together?
Yes! I’m happy to work with brands that align with my goals, vision, and values. Past partnerships on this blog include Califia Farms, Simple Mills, Bob’s Red Mills, and many more! Click here to learn more about working together.
