My Opinion + my mother’s

Author: bgirlrocks

So far my favorite recipe has been, the chocolate confetti squares. Another reason why it was my favorite is that it is really yummy! Chocolate and peanut butter go together so well, and with the marshmallows its even better. My family loved these so much and so did I, they were delicious, creamy and squishy (the marshmallows).I give this squares a 9/10.My least favorite recipe was the pie crust, because the dough wouldn’t roll properly. It tasted good though, it just didn’t look very good. Next time I think I’ll try adding potato starch to make it roll better. I give this recipe a 6/10, because it was very crumbly, and wouldn’t roll out like it was suppose to. A technique that I’ve been practicing is trying to get rid of all lumps in batter/dough, either with a spoon or my hands.(depending on what I’m making) I give myself a 4 on this, I am confident in it but sometimes when finished there are still some lumps.


My Mom’s Words:

Brenda has been a real trooper. She has found recipes on the Internet for rice flour. Although they have been tasty recipes, the textures of rice flour recipes are different then wheat flour ones. She ground the rice herself to make rice flour. She has used some additional ingredients to make it work better. She has not wanted to mix wheat flour in with the rice flour as yet because of the detrimental health features of eating it. She made the rice flour crust for a few pies from scratch. She filled them with homegrown granny smith apples, berries in them and criss cross pie top and others with a crisp topping. She has cooked apple crisp, glazed apples, peach crisp, pumpkin pie, ice cream sandwiches, stir fried vegetables. She has also made and decorated birthday cakes and chocolate chip cookies. She cooked a bun with an egg in it and some spices, made a frozen chocolate mousse and fruit smoothies, too. As well as taking fruit from its natural state to juice, washing and prepping it and preserving it in sealed canning jars. With our homegrown apples and grapes which she helped pick and care for. Brenda has also hard boiled eggs and made her own vegetable salad using spinach and other veggies. The marshmallow squares she described in her paragraph were delicious and enjoyed by all who ate them. We were all disappointed in how fast they were consumed. The pie crust she described was exactly like that. However it was good. She had to pat the crust into the tin instead of rolling it. Brenda is good at finding her own recipes online or in recipe books. She is willing to write a list of what she needs and to follow through with the preparation and cooking. She enjoys cooking and serving others. She likes to clean up. She analyzes her work well and she naturally seeks to improve it for next time. She cooks for her family at least once or twice a week. She saves a serving or two for her grandmother or makes special meals for her Grandmother at her house.

Chocolate Confetti Squares


(By the way this recipe is from a cook book: Company’s Coming 150 Delicious Squares)



  • 1/4 cup of butter/margin
  • 1/2 cup of peanut butter
  • 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 8 oz. of mini marshmallows



  1. Melt Peanut butter and butter in a large saucepan. Stir in the semi-sweet chocolate chips once the butter and peanut butter is melted. Mix the chocolate chips in until they are completely melted.
  2. Remove the saucepan from heat and set aside to cool, until you are able to hold your hand onto the bottom, but don’t leave it cool to long or it may start to harden.
  3. Add marshmallows into the mixture, until completely coated. Take a 9 x 9 in. pan, line with foil (makes it easier to remove the squares), poor the mixture in.
  4. Refrigerate, once solid cut into 36 squares, and enjoy.


My Grandma loved these and gobbled her’s up. My siblings love these so much, they don’t last more than a day in our fridge. These are also great for picnics.

Pie CRust


  • 3/4 cup of butter/margin, cubed
  • 1/4 cups of rice flour
  • 1 tbsp. ice water
  • 1/4 tsp. xanthan gum
  • 1/4 tsp. salt

  2. Add cubed butter and blend until the mixture looks loose, dry crumbs. Add slightly beaten egg and beat until incorporated in the flour mixture. Add 1 tablespoon of ice water whisk until evenly mixed in with the other ingredients. If you can squish into a ball than don’t add anything, but if its to fry than add 1/4 tsp. more of ice water.
  3. Collect all of the dough and form into a ball, cover in wax paper and stick into the refrigerator, until ready to use.
  4. When ready, take out of the refrigerator and squish the dough into the bottom of the pie pan and up the sides.
  5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  6. Prick the bottom of the crust with a fork so it doesn’t bubble.
  7. Once the oven is heated to the correct temperature place the pie crust inside and set a timer for approximately 15 minutes, or until golden.


I found that this recipe did not roll to well, so I will be trying to change the ingredients, so that it will roll out better. Once I make the perfect recipe for a pie crust I will share it here with you.

I will be baking and cooking different foods. I will share them with you on this page. Most of the recipes that require flour I will be using rice flour instead. I will be trying to find the best ways to use it, what to add and what to take away from the ingredients list. I look forward to seeing how the recipes turn out and trying to make them better.
