For this recipe I used the multi-colored fingerling potatoes (red, yellow and purple) that can be purchased in small bags in the produce department. If you can't find them, or if you want to use the regular all yellow fingerling potatoes, go for it. I honestly don't notice any difference in taste between the purple potatoes and the yellow ones. To me they're just something fun and different that will add a little extra pop of color to your side dish.

I've only become a rhubarb fan over the past few years. Before that, I 'thought' I didn't like it because I'd heard it was sour and bitter. Oh, how wrong I was! And, now that I know better I like to take full advantage of rhubarb season, as often as I can, with desserts like this!

The inspiration for this recipe came from the refrigerated dairy case at my local grocery store. While I was standing there looking at tubed crescent rolls (you know the ones), I spotted these tubed corn muffins which I had never seen before. From there I immediately thought of biscuit bowls and all the yummy things you could fill them with.

It was right before Christmas 2014 when I got one of the biggest compliments from a friend that I've ever received. She said something to the effect of being in awe of me in the way I keep reinventing myself. I was a little taken aback at such a compliment because I'd never looked at it that way before.

My parents were coming for dinner, so I wanted to make something simple for dessert with ingredients I already had on hand in my pantry and fridge. I took out the package of frozen pie dough and let it thaw on the counter as I pondered in my head what I would do with it.
