Cranberry, Raspberry and Blueberry Wonder Woman Pie

I started a new section in the sidebar of this blog titled 'Fun Foods'.

Not that all food isn't fun—because it certainly is! As of late, I have found myself gravitating towards foods that are more "nerdy",  geometrically pleasing or delve into my graphic design background.

I consider it a successful day if I can hold my sweet tooth off until about 8:45pm. Habits are hard to break. That time will forever be engrained in my head as dessert time.
