Welcome! My name is Sandi, the creator of the blog, Fearless Dining. I am so glad you came to visit my blog!
I have been developing delicious kid-friendly gluten free recipes since 2010 when we were first diagnosed. I wrote down all of my recipes in a notebook. In late 2014, I decided to create a food blog so I could share my gluten free recipes with the world.
About Sandi Gaertner
I grew up with a grandmother who loved to cook, and one who did not. My Grandma who cooked would magically throw ingredients into a pot, and everything would taste delicious. She wrote down almost none of her recipes, but the few she did write down, I treasure. My Grandma's Homemade Chicken Soup recipe gets rave reviews and is the ultimate Jewish penicillin during cold and flu season.
Because she never wrote most of her recipes down, our family lost many treasured family recipes. I vowed not to let that happen with my gluten free recipes.
Our family's gluten free journey began about 10 years ago before the term gluten intolerance was widely known. With our diagnosis "in hand" we left the doctor's office a little shell-shocked."
This was before you could gluten free products in the stores. I had no idea how to make gluten free food my kids would like, nor did I know how to make this whole transition easier for the kids. Our kids were younger and they didn't want to eat different foods from their friends and classmates. Over time we all adapted and I truly think everyone got on-board because they felt so much better.
My recipes have been featured on many popular sites including:
- Better Homes & Garden
- Country Living
- Pure Wow
- Prevention Magazine
I have worked with large brands including grocery store chains including Albertsons, Raley's, Smart & Final, and Grocery Outlet.
I also work with many brands including Idaho Potato Commission, Foster Farms, Franz Gluten Free, Horizon Organics, FAGE Total Greek Yogurt, Nestle, Bob's Red Mill, Milton's, Alaskan Seafood, Bertolli, Bumble Bee, CA Walnuts, Del Monte, T-Fal, and many more.
I include some guides to help you live a gluten free lifestyle. If you are curious about what I have in my gluten free pantry, I walk you through my favorite gluten free products. You can search for any recipe on my blog with this handy recipe index.
