Pi Day is the one magical day a year when food and math intersect in a truly delicious way. Pi is celebrated with pies of all shapes and sizes (apple, pizza, and cherry are among the favorites!) on this festive day.
This Pi Day is extra special because the date, March 14, 2015, is a continuation of pi the number (3.1415926…), which makes it the perfect choice for this week’s SWAT (Sharing With A Theme).

All of the recipes featured can be made at home for about $20 or less, excluding the cost of small amounts of basic ingredients such as butter, oil, flour, sugar, salt, pepper, and other dried herbs and spices.
