If you want to celebrate Mardi Gras like they do in New Orleans, you must make a king cake. Traditionally, this bright purple, yellow and green cake hides a tiny plastic figurine inside the cake. When the dessert is sliced, the person who receives the hidden treat is the king or queen of the day. That’s some good old-fashioned fun if you ask us!
Its origins are subject to speculation. It has been proposed that it gets its name from either the South Side district of the city of Chicago, Illinois, or from the Southside Sportsmen's Club on Long Island. 
The drink may have been the preferred beverage of Al Capone, whose gang dominated Chicago's South Side.  The gin imported by Capone's rivals on the North Side of Chicago was smooth, and usually consumed with ginger ale.  However, the gin consumed by Al Capone's gang had a rougher finish, and required more sweeteners to make it palatable.  Thus the South Side was born. 
The following recipe for a South Side is used by the famed 21 Club in New York City. 
- 10-12 mint leaves
- 2 ounces gin
- 3/4 ounces fresh-squeezed lemon juice
- 3/4 ounces simple syrup
Combine all ingredients except mint into a cocktail shaker, fill shaker with ice, and shake well. Open the shaker and add the mint, leaving one mint leaf around the size of your thumb for garnish. Close the cocktail shaker and roll the mint leaves from one end of the shaker to the other so as to gently release the mint oils but not to bruise the leaves. Strain the glass into a highball glass and garnish with a mint leaf.
A South Side Fizz adds soda water: 
- 1.25 oz gin
- 1/2 oz lime juice
- 1/2 oz simple syrup
- 2 sprigs mint
- club soda
In a shaker, combine the mint, lime juice, and simple syrup. Add the gin and fill with ice. Shake, and strain into a highball glass filled with crushed ice. Stir until frost appears on the outside of the glass. Fill with club soda and garnish with another dash of mint. 
South American Recipes for the Grill
In South America, weekends are a time to get together and eat meat–and lots of it! Hosting a grilling extravaganza, called an asado, is a great way to celebrate. The tradition of slowing roasting many different cuts of meat over a fire comes from the cattle farming countries such as Argentina and Uruguay, but the tradition has spread throughout South America.
Simply seasoned meat is typically the main show, but there are lots of other things that cook well on the grill, and South Americans like to experiment. There are many unique grilling techniques that come from the region as well, such as the famous Colombian dish lomo al trapo (an entire beef filet wrapped in a thick layer of salt and cloth and cooked in the coals). In the Patagonian chef Francis Mallman's cookbook called Seven Fires, he describes a total of seven distinct methods for cooking over a fire. South Americans have a true passion for this ancient way of cooking, something they are happy to share with the rest of the world.

My January's goal is to get diet back on track. Seriously, I'm going carb-free for January and following South Beach Diet Plan. I can't believe I have decided to make an open statement.

The “Other” Pittsburgh Sandwich The South Side Slopes
They say anything is possible as long as you believe. I believed in so many things, but they didn&rsquot come through. As a kid, we read these fairy tales and they have you believing in Prince Charming, on a white horse, coming to rescue you. In reality, Prince Charming isn&rsquot on the white horse. In fact, he may not be searching for you. On Facebook, I see many people post those photos about him riding a jackass.
In reality, Prince Charming isn&rsquot on the white horse. In fact, he may not be searching for you. On Facebook, I see many people post those photos about him riding a jackass.
Oh fairy tales, how they do give you that dream. That is what they are supposed to do, make you dream. At one point we do stop dreaming. Mostly it because too much disappointment because our dream did not come true. Or did it?
Maybe the dream came true, only we didn&rsquot notice it because we looking way too much into &ldquoperfect&rdquo or we have taken the fairy tale way to literal. Maybe Prince Charming isn&rsquot on that white horse, maybe he doesn&rsquot have on that perfect suit and glistening smile you come to expect from the fairy tale. Maybe he wears a hoodie and jeans and he could be riding that jackass. yes he could be so very busy that he doesn&rsquot have time to respond to every text. There is something about him, you like. It could be the way he is concerned when you got bad news. It could be he will help with dishes and not have to be asked. It is the little things that are what makes him Prince Charming, not what the fairy tell tells you what Price Charming is supposed to be like.

Women forget this. Just because the packaging isn&rsquot what you expected, doesn&rsquot mean it not a real gem. Food can be like that too. It can be not what you expected, but once you take a bite, you end up being a great thing.
As I mentioned so many times on here, I am a native Pittsburgher living in Cleveland. So when comes to Pittsburgh style cuisine, I am an expert in a way. I mean, I did grow up with it. trust me the first time I had a steak salad and it didn&rsquot have french fries on it, I was surprised. I thought that was the normal thing to do. Then I found out, it a Pittsburgh thing to do with steak salads. It is a good example, the packing wasn&rsquot what I expected, but it was still good.
Many people when they think of Pittsburgh food, they think of the official Pittsburgh sandwich, a Primanti Bros sandwich. With the coleslaw and french fries on it. There is another place in Pittsburgh that has amazing sandwiches. In fact, one those sandwiches actually made Maxim&rsquos magazine #7 spot in best sandwiches in the country.
What place is this? It is called FatHeads. It is on the South Side of Pittsburgh on Carson Street, and they have some amazing combos on their sandwiches. So as I said a Pittsburgher living in Cleveland, but I do get a taste of my hometown from time to time here.
Fatheads opened up a restaurant here in Cleveland. Trust me Clevelanders think one the best restaurants here, but 95% them do not even realize it from Pittsburgh and they are eating Pittsburgh style food. In fact, my friends ask me, after I told them that the original is in Pittsburgh, why is the best sandwich there called the South Side Slopes.
Well, the #7 best sandwich in the country, according to Maxim is called the South Side Slopes, because Fatheads is on the South Side and part of South Side starts to slope, so we call that part &ldquoThe Slopes,&rdquo thus the name South Side Slopes. Have you been to Pittsburgh? It a mountain with 3 rivers. It is all hills there. So this is my version of the &ldquoother&rdquo famous sandwich in Pittsburgh. The grocery store had fresh kielbasa on sale, so I decided let&rsquos make a South Side Slopes.
