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.
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 own 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.
I received my Bachelor of Music in Music Industries Studies from Loyola University New Orleans, and my Masters in Counseling Psychology from Fordham University in NYC.
Having worked as a school counselor and swim coach for 15 years, I now am pursuing the blog full-time.
Growing up a competitive swimmer, I knew food played a central purpose in our ability to thrive. It has since been a source of healing for me.
Everybody is different and needs different things. That's why you'll find many dairy-free, egg-free, and vegan recipes on the site as well.
My hope is that the recipes here help bring about options and joy for those that need it.
