We know that Pi Day, 3.14, is universally celebrated by eating pie, but our friends at Sac Digs Gardening apparently prefer other delicious treats. Here you will find a bunch of desert recipes from their cookbook, Taste Spring!

And while we're here, let's also celebrate the strange poetry of mathematics. As I'm sure you know, if you divide the circumference of any circle by its diameter, you will get a number that stretches into infinity and begins 3.141592653589793238... . (This makes absolutely no sense to me.) We represent this number with a letter from the Greek alphabet, called pi, which is not on my keyboard, but which you san see superimposed on a real pie above. Pi is what's known as an "irrational" number, which does make sense to me, and is just downright poetic.
