Sweet and Savory Deals for Pi Day

By Sarah Freeman
The making of a perfect pie, whether of the fruit or pizza variety, combines art (making it creative and delicious) and science (precise measurements). Today is a day that celebrates some science (numerical value of pi – 3.14) with some tasty art – cheap pies.

Sweet Pie
