I started this journey in 2005 when I decided to attend the culinary program at BPCC. Little did I know that 11 years later I would be sitting at my computer launching a website for a growing business with a red headed toddler in my lap and a loving husband behind me. Dreams do come true!
I started out working in a casino steakhouse making speciality desserts; that grew into helping in all areas of the kitchen. I am thankful that I had the opportunity to work under some really great chefs that saw potential in me. It helped me to grow my passion for cooking.
As pages turn, I ended up taking over my family's business that has absolutely nothing to do with my love for food. It is what pays the bills, but I've always wanted more. I want to be able to help people feel good about themselves with food. Which is why I started the little company, Caspiana Confections. I started with pastries, cupcakes, and things that were pretty to look at and eat.
I was always the girl that could eat anything and never gain an ounce, until I had my baby. Then bam! Meet Jessica baby weight, like Miranda from Sex and the City. Now, I realize that there is a growing need for healthy clean nutrition. While french macarons are super delicious and I will never stop offering my love for desserts, everything in moderation right? In effort to eat better, feel better and have the energy it takes to keep up with a toddler at 34 and considering adding to our family, I found that eating clean whole foods and taking the time to prep ahead made a world of difference.
So, here I am adding this amazing chapter to my story. With a love for food and nutrition, I am aiming to help people set their goals as well as eating clean. This isn't about flavorless or bland "diet" food, this is colorful, delicious, fun to eat food. Food that will keep your belly and eyes happy. If you aren't happy with what your food looks like and most importantly what it tastes like, then chances are you will have trouble fighting those nasty potato chip cravings! And lets be honest, we all have those!
I want to thank everyone for the overwhelming support I have received in starting this branch of Caspiana Catering. Caspiana is the little community that once was about 12 miles south of town; plush Red River bank town scattered with pecan groves and cotton fields. This is where my family resides, where I feel a sense of home. A place that is rich in tradition with a love for fresh produce and free range cattle. Chickens are left to roam free and the fruit trees blossom in spring causing a rich aroma to fill the fresh air. It is my home and now I am bringing some of that tradition to you!
