    I LIKE PIE

    Maybe you like PIE. Maybe you like pi. (We would have given you the option of 3.14 but we can't do decimal places.) Or maybe you're simply intrigued by what we're doing and want to see it happen. That said, you've got to watch your burn rate. We get it. That's cool. Join us at this level, we'll invite you to the private PIE Cookbook Slack community so that you have direct access to all of the folks who have joined the PIE Cookbook project. What's more, you'll get the three (3) votes to cast for the topic(s) we should cover first.
