Welcome! My name is Sandi, and I am 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. When we went gluten free, you couldn't buy a loaf of bread in stores! I wrote down all of my recipes in a big notebook. In late 2014, I decided to create a food blog so that I could share my gluten free recipes with the world.
You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or would like to work with me.
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 I truly treasure the few she did write down. My Grandma's Homemade Chicken Soup recipe gets rave reviews and is the ultimate Jewish penicillin during cold and flu season.
When I decided to write a blog in 2013, my husband and I were tossing blog name ideas around. He said fearless dining because we were often getting glutened in restaurants. I wanted to teach people how to eat safely.
I worked in restaurants throughout high school, college, and for years after graduation. I used my experiences and knowledge to convert my gluten-free recipes.
I have so many, but I adore donuts and pastries.
Our family's gluten free journey began about ten 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.
With my newly released third e-cookbook, Gluten Free Easy Meals, I am helping gluten free families learn how to cook and bake even more delicious recipes!

I'm very interested in your recipes!! My question is--what can I use in place of butter, cream cheese & other dairy products. I do use coconut or almond milk, but what about butter & cheese? I can't use them or I suffer!! Thanks, can't wait to try some of these!
They make a lot of great vegan kinds of butter and in many recipes coconut oil can work well. I like Kite Hill dairy-free cream cheese, tofutti is pretty good too.
Loved the chicken Parmesan recipe. My 18year old son is picky and devoured it!!!!
I am so glad you liked it Andrea, you made my day coming back to let me know!
I see that this recipe, Pressure Cooker Baked Blueberry Oatmeal, has been removed from your sight. Any chance you could email it to me, please? My family loved the couple of times I made it and I would love to be able to make it again. Thank you!
Hi Cresta, I am in the process of revamping the recipe as the post was damaged when I did a blog redesign. I should have it up on the blog again this week 🙂
