I am just going to come out and say it... this is some thick ass sauce right here y'all! This sauce is nowhere near being skimpy and naked. We got it all going on over here with grass-fed ground beef, ground Italian sausage, three colors of bell peppers, oodles of minced garlic, half an onion, and a whole lot of basil and oregano! How does that sound? Keep reading to find out how I made this set-it-and-forget-it sauce.
I think you are all going to fall in love with this simple and easy slow-cooker paleo root vegetable pot roast recipe! This is pure comfort food right over here! This dish was created with a chuck roast, carrots, parsnips, and one really huge turnip! This paleo pot roast gets its fabulous flavor from one of my favorite seasonings, Herbs de Provence. Not only is this meal pure comfort food on a plate, but this paleo & gluten-free dinner is simple to create at home.
First things first though. Let’s discuss this Root Vegetable Pot Roast from the beginning. The meat is the highlight of the meal after all. The first thing I do for a slow-cooker roast is salt and pepper that slab of meat, throw it on a hot saute pan with olive oil, let it sizzle and brown. When you brown your meat you lock in the juice of the meat and your meat will be so tender when dinner time rolls around. I used a small 2 pound roast for this recipe but I believe you could use any chuck roast up to three pounds. If you are looking for a great deal on a chuck roast, I have had great success with shopping at Kroger.
My 38th birthday on February 23rd may have come and gone but the wonderful memories will remain of my awesome birthday dinner with family at Terry’s Terrace in Harrison Township, Michigan.

If you are looking for a seafood dish of excellence then Terry’s Terrace is the restaurant that you will want to dive into! This Terry’s Terrace review will go into detail about my seafood birthday dinner at this establishment. Unfortunately, I can’t have alcohol at this point in time of my life so I am unable to discuss that but it does appear to be that this place has an incredible bar. If you want to hear about their food, though, you are in the right place. Also, keep reading to find out how you can win a $25 gift-card to Terry’s Terrace in the gift-card giveaway! Four winners will be drawn at random.
The Instant Pot Aura is a multi-cooker that will replace ten common appliances in your kitchen. Even though this small appliance carries the Instant Pot name, this device is not a pressure cooker. And guess what? I am completely and totally fine with this small appliance not being a pressure cooker. I guess I am what you would consider old school when it comes to cooking and have always preferred a slow-cooker method over pressure cooking. This Instant Pot Aura review will show you the many functions of this multicooker device for your kitchen.
I just recently had a chance to give CBD Only edibles a whirl and I am so happy to share my experience with you today in this CBD Only review. I have tried CBD gummies plenty of times but this was my first ever experience with CBD hard candies and caramels. I love my gummies, like really really love them and I enjoy taking them but it is always fun to mix it up and try something different and new for a change. That is where CBD Only comes in with their range of edibles available. I had the opportunity to try some CBD edbiles from CBD Only and that includes their CBD hard candy, CBD caramel, and CBD gummy bears.
I actually just found out about this incredible place, Rocket Fizz, a few days ago through my sister. My sister took her kiddos here and shared some photos from her experience. I knew that right after seeing those photos of hers that I needed to come in and scope out this fun and unique place. Rocket Fizz is a soda pop & candy shop, as well a nostalgia store located in Shelby Township, MI. These are actually a chain of stores that are located throughout the United States. Spectacular surprises await you around every corner and I am sharing my first-time experience with you in this Rocket Fizz review. From floor-to-ceiling there are sweet confections and oddities everywhere your eyes look. It is like sensory overload in here and I mean that in the greatest way for the candy consumer.
I love when I am browsing the interwebs and come across a super duper cool online store! I recently came upon Nutty Steph’s while checking out a gift-guide chock full chocolates. Nutty Steph’s really stood out to me with their Bernie Bar! I really do try to avoid politics over here at Give It A Whirl Girl, but truth be told, and cat’s out of the bag… I absolutely love Bernie Sanders. Nutty Steph’s hails from the state of Vermont so it only makes sense that this online store backs Bernie as a big supporter. Nutty Steph’s also is a big backer of Planned Parenthood and they have the Vulva Chocolates to prove it!
If you are not a fan of garlic it might just be time to walk away from this post. Today I will tell you how I created a Garlicky Greek Caulipower Pizza using a blank Caulipower crust and some Primal Kitchen Greek Vinaigrette. You can adjust this recipe to your taste with the garlic but the amount that is noted in here is for garlic lovers only. This is, believe it or not, my first time ever having a Greek pizza. I love Greek food so I kind of had an idea in my mind that everything would turn out wonderful to me. Guess what? I nailed it and that is why I am sharing this recipe to you for my Greek Caulipower Pizza! This pizza does not contain any meat so it a vegetarian pizza and would be perfect for any veggie lover.

Modern Cone is a fairly new ice-cream shop to hit the city of St. Clair Shores, MI. This ice-cream shop is formerly known as Ashby's Ice-Cream shop. I am so excited about the change that has come to this location.

The photos that I saw on my Yelp app totally and completely sucked me in. So for Tried It Out Tuesday this week I am sharing my Modern Cone review with you. If you are in the Detroit area (or St. Clair Shores would be even better) you need to check out Modern Cone. Their extensive menu is super duper exciting for the ice-cream enthusiast.

Let’s kick things off here by just admitting that I feel so very blessed to live in close proximity to Nino Salvaggio in St. Clair Shores. I have been visiting Nino Salvaggio’s for as long as I can remember. My mom used to go shopping here all the time and my mind was always blown by the beautiful, colorful fruit and vegetable displays there. It is sort of like a work of art… an installation of the prettiest produce your eyes have seen. Nino Salvaggio takes pride in the products that they sell, and it shows! This store is absolutely stunning and you can see that they pay attention to detail.
