Disclosure: I received a gift card to dine at Detroit Wing Company in exchange for my honest review. All opinions stated here are my own.

 

Detroit Wing Company menu

My oh my! There are so many different wing sauces to choose from at Detroit Wing Company. This wing place offers up 17 different sauces ranging from mild to super spicy and everything in between. You can choose from either Classic Wings or Boneless Wings. My little family of 3 stopped in for a late lunch and we went with the 24-piece Classic Wings and we were able to choose 4 different flavors.

The Detroit Wing Company has some incredible wings but there is a lot more to their menu, so let’s explore it a bit!

They have chicken tenders on the menu, along with their DWC mac & cheese, fries with your choice of wing sauce, and they also have poutine! The poutine gravy is actually cooked for a whole 24 hours before serving so that you can have that amazing gravy flavor.

Detroit Wing Company Flavors

Here is the part of the menu that gets super fun to order from. Here is where you decide which of these 17 wing sauces will be going on your order of wings at Detroit Wing Company. They have so many interesting sauces to choose from, it is almost difficult to narrow it down here! They all sound excellent.

For those of you who like it on the mild side there are wing sauces like Butter Cheese, Lemon Pepper, Garlic Parmesan, Honey BBQ, and more. For the spicy thrillseekers at Detroit Wing Company you can go with the Calypso Heat (which is their hottest wing sauce!), Sweet Heat, Hot Garlic, and Habanero Ranch.

Happy Hour at Detroit Wing Company

If you love to chow down on boneless wings make sure you swing by DWC between the hours of 3-5pm. You can score yourself some boneless wings at 40% off. This is a great deal that is just too good to pass up!

What my family ordered

We went with a 24-piece order of wings and were able to choose from 4 different sauces for that size order. We went with Garlic Parmesan, Asian Orange, Butter Cheese, and Carolina Gold BBQ. It was hard to narrow our choices down to only 4 since they all sounded so excellent! I think we definitely made the right choices here though!

The Garlic Parmesan wings were hands-down my favorite of the four flavors that we gave a whirl! The Garlic Parmesan wings have a white creamy sauce and have a VERY potent flavor of garlic and also some Parmesan cheese. I was having a foodgasm at the table with that particular flavor and I swear to you, no doubt I looked like a dirty pig tearing into these wings. This flavor was SUPER sloppy but I do say that in the nicest way. The next time I stop in at the Detroit Wing Company my family will definitely be ordering that flavor once again.

Butter Cheese was quite the interesting wing flavor! I will say that I have never in my life had a wing quite like that. The Butter Cheese is a very mild wing and it will remind you of garlic crust from a cheesy pizza! Though similar to ingredients to the Garlic Parmesan (garlic and Parmesan), the Butter Cheese is more of a fraternal twin.

Asian Orange was a delightful flavor that we also enjoyed. This Asian flavored wing has a very strong taste of orange to it. My daughter, Chloe who is 9, was not a fan of this particular flavor. She did say that the orange flavor was a bit overpowering. No worries though, my husband and I did find this flavor appealing and would happily order this flavor again.

The Carolina Gold BBQ flavor at Detroit Wing Company is a great choice if you enjoy BBQ wings with a not too sweet and not too spicy flavor. This flavor is smack dab right in the middle of the flavor board.

Final thoughts

I hope that my Detroit Wing Company review will inspire you to head on over to 1 of their 5 locations so you can give these wings a whirl! I usually go to Buffalo Wild Wings when that wing craving hits me but after trying out the wings at DWC, that will now be our go-to place. My little family of 3 was highly pleased with our first ever visit to the Eastpointe location. We also really appreciated the friendly staff. We are looking forward to exploring the menu a bit more on our next visit to the Detroit Wing Company.

Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers REVIEW – The Hidden Gem On Gratiot With The Best Burgers In Town

Here is a little bit of background on me and Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers. They opened up their first burger joint nearly a decade ago in Mount Clemens. My little family lived only a hop, skip, and a jump away when they had that location. I actually used to push my daughter over there in her stroller and cut up a Seeburger’s Cheeseburger for her to eat (she is 9 now and still a huge fan!). My family has been dining at Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers since day one and we keep on coming back because you will not find a better cheeseburger slider around in a huge radius! This is our go-to destination for the ultimate “cheat day” meal. There is just something about Seeburger’s! They truly do work at slapping a smile upon your face and making your belly feel happiness and joy. So today I am sharing my Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers review on the blog. Keep reading to learn more about this treasured burger spot!

You might not have ever heard about Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers and I hate to break it to you but you have been missing out big time! These addictive little burgers are pure bliss to chow down on, and will have you keep coming back for more! I think of Seeburger’s as a bit of a hidden gem. It is tucked away on Gratiot and nestled next to a party store and only a couple of buildings away from White Castle, another slider destination. Bold move huh to have a slider shop in such close proximity to another slider spot, but it works! Todd Seeburger is the owner and he has his faithful following of slider connoisseurs. I am reaching out to you today in hopes of spreading the word about this burger joint because I believe it is important that you know about it if you love a good burger and a fantastic deal on them.

Here is our spread of food

My dad and I stopped into Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers on Gratiot for lunch. When you step into this location you can feel a good vibe as soon as you walk through the door. This location has car and cruising memorabilia on display. Gratiot is a cruising destination of many during the warmer summer months in Michigan. Cruising has been happening on Gratiot for decades and my dad is one of the original cruisers from way back in the day.

Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers FAMOUS Sliders

At Seeburger’s their claim to fame is definitely due to the large success of their cheeseburger sliders. These are some very satisfying little morsels of heaven! You can purchase single sliders for $1.65, or you can purchase a combo for $7.07, buy a half dozen for $7.99, or purchase an entire dozen for $14.99.

 

Here are some photos of their famous cheeseburger sliders. Enjoy!!

Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers is more than just sliders

This Give It A Whirl Girl blog is all about trying new things and giving them a whirl. Since I have tried their cheeseburger sliders a hundred dozen times, today I will be sharing my experience with the Big Clem Burger and the Phat Gratiot Burger. My dad and I stopped in for lunch and today I am sharing my experience of that satisfying and deeply filling lunch.

I am including the Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers menu down below so you can scope out all of their fantastic offerings.

Big Burgers at Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers

The Big Clem

The Big Clem burger features two hamburger patties with American cheese, lettuce, Thousand Island dressing, and then this juicy burger is topped off with an onion ring the size of a donut!

I enjoyed this Big Clem Burger big time, guys!! I have never in my life had a burger quite like this. That gigantic onion ring that topped off my burger really hit the spot! The thousand island dressing on this cheeseburger really gave off a Big Mac vibe, only better. I am not a patron of McDonald’s… like ever! This Big Clem Burger puts the Big Mac to shame. At Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers, you get fresh beef, never frozen on your burger. You really can tell the difference. The owner, Todd Seeburger, has a lot of pride about his burgers and he uses only the best ingredients to keep his customers and loyal following happy.

The Phat Gratiot Burger

The Phat Gratiot Burger at Seeburger’s is a double stacked hamburger with pepperjack cheese, BBQ sauce, bacon, and frizzy onions.

This right here is the burger that my dad tried out. My father was ooo’ing and ahh’ing the entire time he ate this burger and he really tried to take his time so he could savor each and every bite of it. This burger earned a spot on my to-do list. l have never had a burger with bbq sauce on it before but I think the combo of bbq sauce and pepper jack cheese might just be a match made in heaven.

There are plenty of other items available at Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers and the daily specials change daily. Seeburger’s serves up plenty of deep-fried goodies and offers a variety of different soups to go with your meal.

Sides at Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers

There are plenty of sides that you can order at Seeburger’s. I have tried their basket of seasoned fries plenty of times and I can attest to the fact that their fries are outrageously great! The onion rings here are the biggest I have ever seen in my life. I also highly recommend the deep-fried mushrooms here if you are a mushroom-lover like me! Mmm mmm good! Pickle chips and mozzarella cheese sticks are also a great choice.

A little Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers nostalgia!

I am including a few photos below to showcase just how much my family loves this place! My daughter, Chloe, is now 9 years old and she is a huge fan! My family has been alongside Seeburger’s since day one when they had the Mount Clemens location. I knew as soon as I tried these the first time, that Seeburger’s would be a huge success.

How-To Groupon Like A Boss In Macomb County! How I Spent 3 Groupons In One Day And Had A Very Frugal Day!

I will admit that I do check the Groupon site often for good deals. If I see a good deal that is just way too good to pass up, then you better believe it, I will grab that Groupon! Yesterday I managed to have quite a frugal day with 3 Groupons. I had a fun-filled day with some good sweets and treats, and a dinner to go along with it! Groupons geared towards dining are always a great way to experience something new and give it a whirl! These Groupons allow you to enjoy food and drink at a deeply discounted price.

This Groupon post is going to cover restaurants that are in the Southeast area of Michigan. I will share with you how you can score some great deals at these Michigan establishments. I am sharing how I Groupon’ed like a boss and had an incredibly delicious FRUGAL day!

How Groupon Works

Groupon is very easy to use. For the purpose of this post, I will only be sharing how to use the dining Groupons. There are many other types of Groupons available though! You simply head on over to the Groupon site or download the app. Choose the LOCAL tab at the top and find the Food & Drink category. Click onto that food & drink category and see what local Groupon deals are happening in your area.

How to get your Groupon

We just recently used a Buoy 12 Groupon this past weekend so I will use that as an example here. Buoy 12 is located in my area of St. Clair Shores, MI. They have two different offers available. One of those offers is for 2 people to receive a $25 voucher (currently sold out but keep checking back) or you can purchase a $50 voucher for four people at the discounted price of $30. So for $30 you get $50 worth of food on your next visit to Buoy 12. That is a discounted price of 40% off.

At time of publication (5/20/2019) you can use the Groupon coupon code SAVE3 to save even more!

My daughter and I dined at Buoy 12 in St Clair Shores this past weekend (Groupon deal)

Groupon coupon codes

BUT you can save even more if you have a Groupon coupon code, which is often available! Be sure to always check for Groupon coupon codes prior to checking out.

How to redeem your Groupon for dining

There are two ways you can present your Groupon when you are ready to redeem it. You can either print out the voucher on your printer at home OR you can download the Groupon app and show the server the Groupon on your mobile device.

Our first Groupon we spent was at Starbucks

I got quite lucky with the Starbucks Groupon. The Starbucks Groupons are only by invite-only. I spent $5 for the Groupon and ended up with $10 to spend at Starbucks.

Here is what I purchased at Starbucks: 1 S’mores Frappucino and 1 Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappucino.

I paid only $1.13 for two Frappucinos out-of-pocket. The Groupon was $5. So the total cost was $6.13. Not too shabby for two rather expensive frozen drinks! Starbucks is always just a fancy splurge item for me, so I appreciated that Groupon offer!

Second Groupon we used was at Sagano Japanese Steakhouse

Sagano Japanese Steakhouse currently has two different locations on Groupon: the Warren Japanese Steakhouse and the Clarkston Japanese Steakhouse location. We visited the Warren location so I will be reviewing that experience here.

Read the fine print

Please always read the fine print on Groupons! Sagano Japanese Steakhouse is a shining example of that! For example, you can not use a Groupon at Sagano within 24 hours of purchasing the Groupon. Also, there are menu restrictions on what exactly the Groupon can be used for. We found out the hard way these two things!

What we ordered at Sagano

At Sagano Japanese Steakhouse my husband and I ordered a cucumber sushi roll (please not that you can’t use the Groupon for sushi rolls here. We paid separate for the sushi), and we ordered the chicken teriyaki entree and the beef teriyaki entree. My husband, my daughter Chloe who is 9, and I shared the 2 entrees and that was plenty for the 3 of us. Our entrees came with a soup and a salad, which was wonderful and delicious! We were very pleased with our teriyaki dishes. They had had a great flavor and the portion size was perfect!

How we got the most out of our Sagano Groupon

We had the $30 Groupon for Sagano. The beef teriyaki was $16.95 and the chicken teriyaki entree was $12.95. Our $30 Sagano Groupon covered the cost of the two teriyaki entrees. Our cucumber sushi roll was $3.50 and then we had to leave a tip. I gave the waitress a great tip because she was absolutely awesome, I must say! We really felt that the service at Sagano was excellent.

The Sagano Groupon is PERFECT for HIBACHI!

The Sagano Japanese Steakhouse Groupon is perfect for giving the hibachi grill a whirl. This image below is of my scallop hibachi dish that I got on a previous visit to Sagano. My family of 3 were quite impressed with our hibachi dinners. When we dined at the hibachi grill on that visit we had a fantastic chef. He had a great sense of humor and was very entertaining. Of course there were big flames and an onion volcano and my daughter really enjoyed the theatrics of the Japanese chef that cooked our meals.

Here is the hibachi scallops at Sagano Japanese Steakhouse. You can use the Groupon for the hibachi grill.

And finally, for dessert, we used a Menchie’s Groupon

We are big fans of Menchie’s here in the Give It A Whirl Girl household so we could not pass this deal up! The Menchie’s Groupon is valid for two different locations: Warren and Shelby Township. The Menchie’s Groupon allows frozen yogurt enthusiasts (like me!) to purchase bundles of $5 Menchie’s vouchers for a discounted price.

2 $5 Menchie’s vouchers are $7

or 4 $5 Menchie’s vouchers are $14

Please be aware (and I found this out the hard way too because I skimmed over the fine print) that you can only use 1 $5 Menchie’s Groupon per visit!

Want to learn more about Menchie’s?

Read my Menchie’s Review on the blog!

If you are looking for a fun place to take the family for dessert, Menchie’s is the place to be! You are the creator of your frozen yogurt treat. Choose from several different frozen yogurt flavors and then top it all off at the unlimited toppings bar! Menchie’s charges by the ounce of your dessert creation, so if you want to keep the cost down don’t go too wild and crazy and keep your dessert down to a small or moderate size.

Pro Tip For Groupon! That is IF you are in the Southeast Michigan area

I am going to also let you know about one other FABULOUS GROUPON if you are local! That Groupon would be for Inyo Restaurant in Ferndale.

Final thoughts

I hope this post about Groupon dining will inspire you to give Groupon a whirl! There are so many restaurants that you can try out at a discounted price. This is a wonderful way to give some new establishments a whirl! My little family of 3 has discovered a ton of great places with Groupons and there are so many other places that we cannot wait to try! I have my eye on the Le Crepe Groupon.

This was my first time ever visiting Eastern Market during Flower Day weekend. My mom and my daughter, Chloe who is 9, headed down to the city around 11 am. When we arrived it was total chaos to find a parking spot but we eventually found one over by the Dequindre Cut (after driving around for 25 minutes lol). I am so glad we didn’t just give up and go home since it took so long to find a spot. I was determined to visit Eastern Market Flower Day this year since Eastern Market is now one of my favorite places to visit in the warmer months in Michigan. I get super duper excited whenever I know that I will be heading over there. I also absolutely LOVE the DeVries & Company 1887 shop that is in the heart of it all. It is chock full of unique food & drink items, as well as gifts. I have a ton of fun looking around there and always make sure I take home something special. For this trip, it was black SQUID INK PASTA!

What is Eastern Market

If you are not sure what Eastern Market is, it is a very large farmer’s market venue that also has some other vendors there selling miscellaneous things. Eastern Market is nestled in the heart of the city of Detroit and it is a must-see place to visit if you are near the city. Each weekend in the warmer spring and summer months, Eastern Market is open for shopping. It is quite the busy, bustling place and it is advised to arrive early to have the best pick of everything. Though, I do tend to go in the later part of the day, before they close, when the vendors start deeply discounting all of their goods.

This post about my visit to Eastern Market Flower Day is full of colorful photos for your viewing pleasure.

You can read more about my visit to Eastern Market from last summer in this post on the blog.

That post has more photos of the produce (there are a ton of fruits and vegetables here) available.

And no Eastern Market visit is complete unless you visit DeVries & Company 1887!

DeVries & Company 1887 is a store that is a pure joy to visit when you are in the area of Eastern Market. This place is a go-to place for many cheese connoisseurs. This store is filled with some really interesting foods that you will not find on the shelf of your local grocery store. I ended up taking home some squid ink pasta, licorice candy, and some sour Michi-Gummies!

My first impressions of ButcherBox

I received my first delivery on Wednesday, May 1st. My order was shipped out the day before, so my first shipment of meat did arrive the next day. I was really happy with the speed of delivery. I could not wait to see what was sent to me in my first box. Opening up this package gave me flashbacks of Xmas morning!

My first ButcherBox arrived quickly and in great shape!

I opened up my first ButcherBox shipment and everything was packed really well. All of my meats were frozen solid and the box was insulated quite well.

What was inside my ButcherBox

Right off the bat, I could see that I did receive one meat that I was really hoping for and that was my chuck roast. I was hoping to make another Mississippi roast next week and the gorgeous hunk of meat that was sent will be absolutely perfect for that dish! The chuck roast that I received in my ButcherBox came in at 36 oz and it will be the perfect size to feed my family. This piece of meat was quite honestly, the most impressive looking beef roast I ever had to pleasure to cook with. I usually get my meat from the grocery store. The grocery store that I shop at has this cut of beef on sale often at buy-one-get-one-free but it never looks as nice as what ButcherBox has to offer!

I also received two 10 oz ribeye steaks, which will be perfect for a special Sunday dinner this week. Ribeye is my favorite steak cut of meat. It is a very simple steak to cook with simple ingredients. I create an herbed ghee mixture and rub it on the meat and cook it for a few minutes per side in a cast iron pan. I cook my steaks medium-rare and I am really thrilled to give ButcherBox’s meat a whirl.

Everything that I received looks completely and totally super duper fresh! I was really impressed with the gorgeous red hue of all the meat and the marbling on everything.

The other cuts of beef that I received in my first ButcherBox were the following: 2 lbs of grass-fed ground beef (in one pound packages), 2 6 oz flat iron steaks, 2 packages of sirloin tips (1 lb packages), and a package of ButcherBox’s very own bacon!

Here is what I did with meat from my ButcherBox

ButcherBox Chuck Roast

For the chuck roast that was sent to me from ButcherBox, I immediately knew what I wanted to create with it… my Paleo Mississippi Roast. This is a really awesome recipe to use with a nice piece of chuck roast meat. The recipe tells you how to create your own ranch seasoning rub for the meat and how to create this set-it-and-forget-it beef dish. The chuck roast that I received from ButcherBox was the best chuck roast I had ever seen. I had the most perfect red hue and great marbling on it. This chuck roast did not have much fat on it and the meat came out extremely juicy and tender!

This ButcherBox chuck roast sure made for one memorable meal with lots of ooo’s and ahh’s at the dinner table!

ButcherBox Ribeye Steaks

Sometimes simplicity is best! For the ButcherBox ribeye steaks, I simply cooked them in a cast iron pan with a bit of oil, salt, and pepper. This was a very easy approach but it results in big flavor and a juicy, unforgettable meal. I served my ButcherBox ribeye alongside some ButcherBox bacon-wrapped asparagus. The ButcherBox bacon was the perfect addition to this paleo, primal meal!

Steak & eggs

Here is another simple way to use your ButcherBox meat. My husband has never had steak and eggs so I decided to serve up this for dinner last week. We call it brinner when we eat breakfast for dinner. It doesn’t get any easier than this folks! To cook the ButcherBox flat-iron steak I simply warmed up some avocado oil (you can use olive oil too) in a cast iron pan and seasoned the steak with some steak seasoning on both sides. I got a nice sear on each side of the steak, let it rest a few minutes, and then sliced and served.

Can you see that I like my steak still mooing? lol!

Final thoughts on my first ButcherBox shipment

I am really thrilled that I had the opportunity to review this subscription box and give these top-quality meats a try in the Give It A Whirl Girl kitchen. I hope that you enjoyed this ButcherBox review and that it will inspire you to give it a whirl soon! ButcherBox was perfect for our small family and we completely and totally enjoyed our shipment of beef, and trust me when I say that we enjoyed it! It was love at first bite! It’s not hard to see that ButcherBox only ships out the finest of meat. Every single meal that had ButcherBox incorporated into it had tender, juicy, and flavorful beef! Certainly was the best beef we ever had and it sure beats the stuff that you get at your local grocery store.

How I Created These Colorful, Super Duper MOIST Cake Balls With Instant Pudding Packets

This past weekend was Mother’s Day weekend and I wanted to do something special to celebrate it. My husband and I had some kid-free time and we came up with the grand idea of creating these Super Duper Moist Cake Balls together! Ok, I lied, it was actually ALL my idea and I just employed his help. Does that mean I can call him Give It A Whirl Boy since he helped me with one of my blog projects? Keep reading to find out how I added a secret ingredient to make these cake balls the moistest cake balls you ever did have.

Here is how I created these Super Duper Moist Cake Balls

The secret ingredient is…

Want to know what my key ingredient is with any cake mix I ever use? Sugar-free instant pudding packets from Jell-O! Yup, and I use the whole entire packet. For these two batches of cake balls that I whipped up, I used one packet of sugar-free cheesecake pudding for the pink and blue balls, and for the green cake balls I had to use my favorite pudding mix, pistachio pudding (sugar-free as well). I always opt for any of the sugar-free pudding packets since I think it is unnecessary to add even more sugar to the cake, but you can feel free to use any pudding packet your heart desires.

Baking the cake

First things first! For these Super Duper Moist Cake Balls, you need to decide on a boxed cake mix to use. I went with Betty Crocker’s Super Moist Rainbow Chip mix. I created two batches of cake balls so I needed two boxes of cake mix. To add a much-loved moist cake ball you then need to choose a pudding mix. You will also need to choose a can of frosting that you would like to mix in to hold these balls together. I used Betty Crocker’s Rainbow Chip frosting.

Make sure you have some decent bakeware to use! I love my Circulon nonstick set.

PRO TIP!

The cake mix calls for 1/2 cup of oil. I used ghee (butter) instead and they came out marvelous!


I used a 9×13″ cake pan and baked the cake for 28 minutes. After the cake cools I then scrape the top and middle part away and pour the crumbled cake into a large mixing bowl. I do not use the bottom part of the baked cake because it has that baked texture to it. The top of the cake has plenty of that baked texture to it and that is plenty for cake balls. You will want to crumble all of the cake into the smallest pieces. You do not want large cake pieces in your mixing bowl.

Here are the two cakes crumbled up and awaiting the frosting
Here are the two cakes crumbled up and awaiting the frosting

Frosting to hold them all together

The frosting is what you will be using to hold these balls together and to give them a big punch of sweetness for that sweet tooth of yours. Once you have all of the cake crumbles in the large mixing bowl, add 3/4 of the frosting to the bowl and mix it all up until well incorporated. I use a soft spatula to do this. You might need to use the entire can but I do not recommend it. This is going to take a bit of muscle to stir this all up so pull up your sleeves and get ready to mix, mix, mix!

After the cake and frosting is completely mixed you will want to make sure you have VERY CLEAN hands and you will want to take the mixture with your hands and form 1-inch cake balls

Chill them balls!

After you form those cake balls with the cake crumbles and frosting you will want to freeze the balls for a short period of time. 15 minutes is plenty! Just be sure that you do not freeze them for too long. You don’t want them completely frozen.

I wanna dip my balls in it!

Oh my goodness! Who here remembers this show The State? Truth be told, that while my hubby and I were working on these balls there were some humorous injections pertaining to balls jokes! Yeah yeah… I am 38 years old and still haven’t grown up! lol!

Anyway…

You will need to choose some candy melts to dip your balls in. I went with the Wilton Candy Melts. I was able to locate the new Brights colors and got bright pink, bright green, and bright blue.

Crazy Gringo Mexican Cantina REVIEW & A Cinco de Mayo Feast At This Mexican Restaurant In Clinton Township, MI

My husband and I were looking for a place to go for our date-night and since it was the day before Cinco de Mayo we were craving a big plate of Mexican food. We have driven past the Crazy Gringo restaurant many times before but never stopped in. The Crazy Gringo Mexican Cantina is located in the 15 Mile Road and Gratiot area of Clinton Township so it was not far from where we live in St. Clair Shores.

Mexicantown in Detroit is usually our go-to place for that authentic taste and experience but my hubby did not feel like driving down to the city last night. So that is how we ended up here. Also, I almost always Google a restaurant before my first time going and I was impressed with the big plates of colorful food. This was the perfect Mexican restaurant to celebrate the Cinco de Mayo holiday!

My First impression of Crazy Gringo Mexican Cantina

My first impression of the Crazy Gringo was how colorful and how fun the atmosphere is. The Crazy Gringo is not a restaurant for peace and quiet. It seems as though everyone was enjoying the atmosphere and just kicking back and having a great time. The first thing that catches your eye here is the bar that is all lit up with little colorful lights. When you see something like this, you know that you are in for a great time! The bar here looked very inviting and my craving for a blue margarita kicked into high gear!

You can also see that this Mexican restaurant has some daily specials for you to partake in as well.

The Crazy Gringo Mexican Cantina Menu Highlights

The Crazy Gringo Mexican Cantina restaurant has a great big menu that offers something for everyone. The portion sizes here are quite generous! You will not leave this Mexican restaurant hungry, that is for certain! Our dinners included a cup of Chicken Tortilla Soup and some chips and salsa. We love chowing down on those chips and salsa before our big platter of food arrives.

The entrees here at the Crazy Gringo Mexican Cantina also include a good helping of some beans and rice.

Save room for dessert!

If you have any room in your tummy after your big Mexican feast here, there are also some traditional Mexican desserts available. I did not get a chance to give these a whirl, maybe next time? I have no doubt that the flan and the churros are on-point! That deep fried ice cream sure sounds interesting too!

Dessert menu for Crazy Gringo Mexican Cantina – What will you order after your Mexican feast?

What we ordered at the Crazy Gringo Mexican Cantina

First things first! Can’t go to a Mexican cantina without a margarita or a Corona with a lime sticking out of the top of it! I have not had a drop of any alcohol since September of 2018 for some medical reasons. I had a hard time saying no to a margarita here at the Crazy Gringo. A blue margarita with some salt on the rim and lime is tops for me! That has always been one of my favorite alcoholic beverages. I was pretty impressed with the smaller $7 margarita that I ordered.

My Electric Kiwi Margarita was made with tequila, blue curacao, blue island pucker, lime juice, and some sour mix. I did request an extra lime with my drink, though, and they did not give me one. Oh well, no biggie!

I ordered the Crazy Wet Burrito for myself because I love big fat, wet, smothered burritos! My husband is more of a fajita lover so he went with the chicken fajita dinner.

Their drink menu boasts that they have over 50 varieties of tequila available. Their House Margarita comes in a regular size for $7 and a boomba size for $10. If you want a top-shelf margarita (who doesn’t??) Those are $12 for the smaller size and $16 for the larger boomba size.

Crazy Gringo Mexican Cantina also offers other specialty cocktails for your drinking pleasure! The Tequila Sunrise and the Mexican Sunset sound fabulous!

If you are thirsty for a shot, they also have them on their drink menu. The shots are $6.50 each. Here is a great one:

Fuzzy Worm: tequila, peach schnapps, and orange juice

Crazy Gringo Mexican Cantina can also liquor you up for new frozen special cocktails and also their famous Corona Rita!

I included a photo of my Electric Kiwi Margarita alongside their chicken tortilla soup. The soup was the perfect prelude to our Mexican meal that was cooking up in the kitchen.

I wanted to do something a little different today and instead of sharing reviews and recipes I want to share some details about ME, in case anyone was wondering who I am! My name is Kimmy Ripley and I am from the city of St. Clair Shores in Michigan. I am very very VERY passionate about food and drink. I try my best to always eat with an open mind and I live for the thrill of trying out new things. This Give It A Whirl Girl food blog was started last June and it such a big joy to share my food and drink experiences with you all!

Today I will be sharing 10 questions and answers on the blog so you can get to know me better! There are going to be a ton of photos in this post so get ready! I know some people who “read” blogs don’t read and just check out the photos, so if you are one of those people you are in luck today!

10 Questions & Answers With GIVE IT A WHIRL GIRL (Kimmy Ripley)


You can also learn more about me in my introductory post!


All About Give It A Whirl Girl – Get To Know Me

1) Favorite food:

This is a tough question. I am not a very picky eater and I consider myself to be a foodie! There are so many foods out there that I absolutely love but if I had to choose one thing, just one thing, it would be…

Sushi! – I love love love sushi but I am also a big fan of things like crab legs or lobster tail because they are such a pricey and super rare treat for me.

My go-to place for sushi is Inyo in Ferndale, MI. We discovered this fantastic Asian fusion restaurant through Groupon. Inyo Ferndale is almost always on Groupon, so if you are local be sure to grab a Groupon for this spectacular Asian restaurant. You can thank me later… wink! wink! Their food is top-notch and we are regulars there.

Honorable mention:

Gotta love a big bowl of noodly pho at Minh Chau restaurant (they just changed the name to New Asian Star). Pho is comfort food for me. The broth here at New Asian Star is on-point! The pho that I enjoy ordering has sliced beef, brisket, meatballs, and soft tendon in it. Yeah I said tendon… and it is a weird meat to eat but I do enjoy it here. They also have a pho available with tripe if you are feeling really adventurous.

You can also stop in here for a bubble drink!

2) Least favorite food:

Oh this is an easy one. I used to eat some funky stuff when I was a little girl… things I could not fathom stomaching now!

Herrings in cream sauce (ew) I used to eat these fishy fishes straight out of the jar.

Giblets and hearts in my stuffing (ew! ew!) My mom always put those nasty things in my Thanksgiving stuffing. NEVER AGAIN

Liverwurst (ew! ew! ew!) All by itself or on some plain white bread. No thank you!

3) Favorite fruit

Want to know about my favorite fruit? This is an easy one to answer for me… dragon fruit, and that is followed by passion fruit, another favorite of mine. I am a HUGE fan of exotic fruits and I love to create exotic smoothie bowls with these fruits. If you are local, you can usually pick up a wide variety of exotic fruits at Nino Salvaggio.

Dragon fruit can have either a white center or pink center. You never know until you slice it!

4) Favorite meals that I have cooked:

Truth be told, and many of you all know, cooking and baking is my #1 passion in life! I love to serve up a delicious dish for my little family of 3

Italian drunken noodle is hands down the family favorite over here in the Give It A Whirl Girl kitchen. You can find the recipe for this delicious dish on my blog. Italian Drunken Noodle features Pappardelle pasta, Italian sausage, and mix of peppers with chardonnay wine.

5) Favorite desserts I have created

I love to bake cakes even though I am not the most talented baker and cake decorator. I created a bubblegum cake and a cotton candy cake. These cakes and cupcakes were a ton of fun to create and even more fun to eat!

Here are some photos of my favorite baking projects:

6) Favorite drink (non-alcoholic):

I don’t know how I can pick one here. I am a self-confessed coffee addict and I am also addicted to my energy drinks (have to have at least one a day!). My favorite energy drinks are by Bang Energy. With flavors like Unicorn and Cotton Candy, how can you resist?


7) Favorite alcoholic drink:

I recently started getting into craft beer and hard ciders. I was always attracted to the labels and packaging. It is so fun and colorful! I grew up my entire life, hating on beer, and saying it tasted like pee. Then one day I went to Hop Cat and I went there with the intention of giving beer a whirl and I ordered a flight with three different craft beers. Guess what? I enjoyed each and every one of them! I was impressed with myself that I gave craft beer a chance. I love craft beer and the entire drink experience with them. I love all of the unique flavors out there… Lucky Charms cereal, etc. etc.!

So sorry for the poor quality photo! I apologize but here is a photo of me with my first craft beer! I gave it a whirl at Hop Cat in Royal Oak, MI

8) Favorite candy

There is no better candy than Jelly Belly’s Raspberries & Blackberries! These berry flavored candies are extremely highly addictive to me and I will kill a bag in just a couple of minutes!


9) Favorite post on the blog

I am nearing 200 published posts on the blog and if I had to choose one favorite post I simply can’t. I am going to declare a tie here. The two posts that were my favorite to do were both local reviews. I would love to visit more places nearby and review them. The local reviews I have done are my top performing posts. Here we go…

Modern Cone Review

and

10) Favorite place to grab a sweet treat

This is an easy question to answer. Menchie’s and Orange Leaf are definitely my favorite place to grab a dessert. I am obsessed with frozen yogurt, also known as froyo. You can read my Menchie’s review on the blog.

About Jordan’s Skinny Mixes and Skinny Syrups

First off I would love to tell you a little bit about Jordan’s Skinny Mixes. Each and every single one of their products can be enjoyed with ZERO GUILT! You will not find any sugar, carbs, or calories lurking in these products, which makes these products all keto-friendly. They can also be enjoyed by those of you who need to follow a gluten-free diet.

So how do they get their products so sweet, you might be wondering? Jordan’s Skinny Mixes and Skinny Syrups are sweetened with sucralose. You simply add one teaspoon or one tablespoon of syrup into your drink. I will say this, that a little bit does go a long way with their products so it might be best to start off with one teaspoon, otherwise you might think it is too sweet!

Jordan’s Meaningful Wellness products

There are two wellness products available from Jordan’s Skinny Mixes.

What’s Inside Detox Meaningful Wellness Boost
Milk Thistle Supports healthy liver function by blocking and removing toxins.
Dandelion Detoxifies liver by flushing out harmful substances from the body to promote overall health.

What’s new at Jordan’s Skinny Mixes?

Here are a few products that are new that I think you might love!

Mermaid

The mermaid syrup is a stunning blue hue and probably not the best idea to put in your cup of coffee. Instead, get creative with this Mermaid syrup. Use it on ice-cream sundaes, cocktails, champagne, lemonade, mixed with sparkling water, or even try it in your next smoothie!

Jordan’s Mermaid syrup has the flavor of: tropical citrus, coconut, a little pineapple and a lot of magic.


Unicorn

The Unicorn syrup from Jordan’s has the flavor of creamy frosting, tart blue raspberry and a hint of cotton candy. The Unicorn syrup is one to unleash your creativity with. I believe this flavor would make an excellent nice-cream (vegan “ice-cream” made with bananas).


Jordan's Skinny Syrup - Unicorn and a skinny unicorn milkshake made with vanilla Halo Top ice cream!

Final Thoughts

I believe that you will all be impressed with the flavors and the quality of Jordan’s Skinny Mixes and Jordan’s Skinny Syrup. I am pretty thrilled that I came across these products on Amazon while I was searching for some sugar-free syrup options for my morning cup of coffee. I have tried out the sugar-free Torani syrups and felt as though they had a bit of an aftertaste. For me, that is certainly not the case with this brand. These syrups all have the perfect amount of sweetness without the calories and without the aftertaste.

I will tell you mine! I spent my entire childhood being obsessed with Superman ice cream followed by mint chocolate chip ice cream. Then one day I tried out cookie dough ice cream and my mind was blown! I believe that cookie dough ice cream will always be my top favorite!

My Extreme Pizza Review

This was not our first time at this Grosse Pointe pizza place. We have been here several times before. We live one city over in St. Clair Shores and the little extra drive is worth it to get to this unique Grosse Pointe pizza establishment. I consider this place to be a hidden gem and I am so happy I discovered it a few years back. This Grosse Pointe pizza place has a menu that builds up excitement in me. There are so many excellent choices here and I don’t think you can go wrong with any of them! Extreme Pizza is known to consistently serve up pizzas that do not disappoint!

Extreme Pizza Menu

Extreme Pizza has quite the exciting menu board! Their menu features 16 Carnivore signature pizzas and 10 Veggin Out pizzas. Their menu has something for everyone and also includes pizzas for the adventurous eater. While you are able to create your very own build-your-own pizza here, I highly recommend giving their signature pizzas a whirl. At our most recent visit, we ordered my favorite, The Boar’der (my pick) and my husband chose the Yard Sale.

Here are the ingredients that were on these two pizzas:

The Boar’der: Shredded pork marinated in a sweet BBQ sauce, red onions, fresh cilantro, cheddar and mozzarella.

The Yard Sale: Italian sausage, pepperoni, salami, black olives, fresh mushrooms, green peppers, red onions, vine ripe tomatoes, tomato sauce, mozzarella and cheddar.

You can view their entire menu here or check out the images below.
