Welcome to One Sweet Appetite! I’m Jesseca, the author, creator, photographer, baker, and cook here and this is a little about me. Quite the job title, huh? I also happen to be the mom of a rambunctious four year old boy, and the wife to an amazing man that eats all of my wacky recipe creations. We currently live in Northern Utah, but if I had it my way we would move at least three more times before settling down. I love to travel and experiences new places!
My love for food started when I attempted to wow my husband (then boyfriend) with some simple cookies. I was so confident in my skills that I just started tossing ingredients into a bowl and ended up with a giant batch of tasteless rocks. It was bad, but in that moment I knew that there was an art to cooking/baking that I wanted to dig deeper into. I started collecting recipe books, printing recipes, and baking all of the time.
THE BLOG: When I had my son we made the decision to have me take on the roll of stay at home mom. I had nothing but time and my cooking skills continued to improve. I finally made the decision that I wanted to start a website to keep track and share all of these amazing dishes that were being served at our table. And that is how One Sweet Appetite came to be. It started small, but has slowly grown into a community of readers that are supportive and forgiving when I make cooking mistakes. You keep me going. I’d love to have you all over for milk and cookies… but we just don’t have the space ;0)
THE PHOTOS: I wish I could say that I owned some fancy equipment or have taken some great classes that I could recommend. If so, my photos would probably be out of this world amazing! I use a Canon T2i with the stock lens. *Pause for GASP*. That’s right folks… I use the lens that came with my camera. We have been saving to buy a house which means luxury’s like camera equipment will have to wait. I’ve just practiced, practiced, and then practiced some more to find out what works and what doesn’t. I have an e-book coming out the end of August that I would love for you to buy! It will give you some detailed tips and tricks on how YOU can get great pictures with what you have on hand!
So take a look around and browse through all of my recipes. If you have any requests or questions shoot me an email at:
