Hola! I’m Jamie.

Hola! I’m Jamie.

Hi! I’m Jamie, the recipe developer and food photographer behind A Sassy Spoon, a food blog for home cooks looking for approachable comfort food recipes with a twist.

Born and raised in South Florida, I’m a first generation Cuban-American who loved watching Mami cook for the whole family as a kid. As a result, I now enjoy developing my own recipes inspired by my rich heritage and other culinary experiences. From everyday recipes to Latin staples and sweet treats, there’s something here for everyone!
