Jessica Potts

The amateur cook, baker and photographer responsible for everything you’ll find at A Happy Food Dance. I live in Los Angeles, by the beach, with my boyfriend and our quirky little dog. I am crazy, head over heels, in love with food; making it, sharing it and eating it. I consider myself a professional cupcake eater, will put avocado on anything and nothing taste better than a good margarita.
