Azteca: Authentic Mexican served in a bright atmosphere

What’s obvious upon arrival at Grand Azteca is the bright colors, friendly atmosphere and authentic Mexican vibe. But what you may not know is that Azteca is locally owned and the menu is FULL of original recipes and authentic techniques that have been in the family for years! The food and decor make this place hard to forget and somewhere you will want to return.


Love the bright colors and painted chairs!


Take in all the seasons at Marshbank Park

We Michiganders can all agree that there is nothing better than experiencing the seasons in our great state. From changing wardrobes four times a year to the excitement of the leaves changing and the tulips sprouting, even through the complaints of construction and potholes, we all know we are damn lucky to live in such a beautiful place.



With packing away the flip flips and pulling out the boots, there’s always a little disappointment paired with the overwhelming excitement. The drastic weather we endure is not for everyone, but luckily there are incredibly fun activities to pair with each change in temperature (I mean we are THE Great Lakes State). As the slowly move from fall to winter, we have found a place that has something for everyone all year round.

A day on Union Lake

Since our state slogan is the “Land of 1,000 Lakes” it’s fitting that we feature some of them on Chick in the Mitt! Starting with the lake that is near and dear to our hearts – Union Lake.

Both Courtney and I have grown up spending our summers on Union and still do! It is a beautiful, clean lake with lots of friendly boaters and one rockin sand bar!

Beautiful Union Lake!

Sharaku Sushi – an authentic Japanese experience

Our Experience. 

My husband, Dan, and I try our best to have weekly date nights. During our evening out, we like to find new and unique places in our community to try. That is how we discovered Sharaku Sushi.

As we walked in, I immediately knew we had hit gold – it had a unique, authentic feel and the sushi bar was packed with fresh fish.

My dinner dream come true.

If you are a sushi lover like I am – this is YOUR place. They have a huge menu and there are unique rolls I had never tried before. If you don’t like sushi there are many other items on the menu to try. Speaking of the menu…it is in both Japanese and English! (more…)
