You don't have to be good at math to celebrate Pi Day. Pi is an irrational number, afterall, which in turn gives us the right to be irrational -- to do things like eat as much pie as we want and pretend it has something to do with a number. So, we will.
Some of us have memorized Pi to its 100th decimal point; some of us simply remember that Pi is a funny symbol we learned in middle school; some of us just love pie (dare we say -- infinitely?). Ultimately, it doesn't matter if you're a mathlete or an advanced TI-89 calculator artist -- today, there's a slice of Pi for everyone. In that spirit, here are 14 recipes to fill our bellies and our minds with Pi(e).
