So it's Pi Day today, although we never need an excuse to eat one of our favorite desserts any day of the year. So here are a few places to grab some [pi]e of your own.

LA Times is celebrating these places to buy some pie . . . . or you can bake your own. With these 52 recipes, you can have your pie and eat it too, every week of the year.

Join the discussion on Eater LA and put in your own two cents where to get the best pie in LA. House of Pies, Cake Monkey, Four 'N 20, and Republic of Pie seem popular . . . .

Or if you just want to enjoy your pie at home, Whole Foods is offering a discount today. Yep, $3.14 off any pie.

Like food? Like art? How about some tasty art. John Kilduff artist and TV-/internet-host will be featured at this month's LA Art Show, at "Kilduff's Bakery." He'll be painting up "made to order" art in his faux bakery kiosk. So if you like to look at food as well as eat it, order up a cookie or croissant to hang on your walls at home.

Need restaurant inspiration? Try out quirky Baroo, a no-frills, no-sign little Korean joint, serving up lots of vegetarian and vegan dishes (don't worry, there's meat too). The name? It's the word for the bowl from which Buddhist monks eat.

Just because summer is nearly over, you shouldn't give up on great fruits and veg. Here's what's in season now.

Lists of people who shouldn't stop for lunch: firetrucks on the way to a three-alarmer, police driving to a bank robbery, and yeah, human tissue transport drivers in downtown LA.

Finally, for you Star Wars fans, don't miss Faith & Flower's off-menu dessert item. The treats are hand-made by pastry chef Josh Graves, just in time to celebrate the December 18 release of Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens. Check out more mouth-watering pics at HuffPost.
