Welcome to Salted Plains!
I'm Tessa Fisher, founder, and creator of Salted Plains.
In 2014, I founded Salted Plains as I began my journey into the world of gluten-free living.
Gluten-free cooking and baking can be overwhelming at first, and sharing recipes that are approachable and delicious has been my mission from the start.
Diagnosed with Hashimoto's thyroiditis and experiencing severe migraines for two decades, I wanted to take more control of my health. Taking gluten out of my diet was a game-changer. Shortly after, I eliminated dairy from my diet as well with positive results.
What You'll Find on Salted Plains
Every gluten-free recipe on Salted Plains is tested and contains detailed step-by-step instructions, photos, and videos to ensure you have success in your kitchen.
The recipes are based on seasonal fruits and vegetables and utilize alternative flours, non-dairy options, and organic and natural sweeteners free of refined sugar.
The name Salted Plains reflects my love of my Midwestern roots and the people and experiences from far and wide that have influenced me along the way.
