Pi(e) Day

Did you know today was Pi Day?  You know, it's March 14, so 3.14. 

Nerdiness aside, this lends itself to the dessert theme of the past few posts.  Some of my favorite childhood memories center around my grandma's apple pie (no, there's no written recipe, and it never tastes as good when I make it as when she does).  Lauren channels her Southern roots and  makes a  mean Chocolate Chess Pie. Recently, my mom has been baking a Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie at Thanksgiving that gets rave reviews.

What's your favorite pie?  Any fun memories around it?
And by all means, share the recipes.

This is embarassing to admit but I love the key lime pie at the restaurant Wildfire.
