Hi! I’m Jamie Silva, the recipe developer and food photographer behind A Sassy Spoon, a food blog for home cooks looking for approachable comfort food recipes with a modern twist.
Born and raised in South Florida from Cuban parents (first generation Cuban-American), I’m a self-taught cook who loved watching Mami (mom) cook for the whole family as a kid. As a result, I now enjoy developing my own recipes inspired by my rich heritage and past dining experiences.
I love recipes that elicit feelings of nostalgia and happy memories, and I hope you feel the same way too. From everyday recipes to Latin staples and sweet treats, there’s something here for everyone!
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 now I enjoy developing comfort food recipes with a modern twist. Let’s work together!
Do you take your own photos?
Yes, I’m the only food photographer behind A Sassy Spoon. I started with an iPhone 6S and now use a Canon 6D Mark II. I absolutely love food photography! Here’s more info about my photography equipment.
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.
