Marie Callender’s Pot Pies

There is good restaurant food out there and once in a blue moon there is really good restaurant food in the grocery store freezer section. Marie Callender’s Pot Pies definitely fits the bill.


Named by Yahoo, as “one of the 8 Grocery Store Products that are Better than Homemade (really)”, Marie Callender’s Pot Pies are not only delicious but available and almost every grocery store. I love being able to pop one in the microwave  and have a warm and delish pot pie in only a few minutes served on my table.


I think the pot pies cook up perfectly and taste better than when I have attempted to make pot pies at home. They are fresh tasting and  even the pickiest of eaters will love them. My kiddos love em!

I definitely think they taste better than homemade. I promise! They are delish!

Next time you are in the frozen food section of your local grocery store, grab one. You won’t be disappointed.

Ridemakerz Rolls Out New Cars 2 Line

Have you visited Ridemakerz? If you haven’t  had the opportunity, you must! Ridemakerz is a design your own custom toy car workshop. Think Build a Bear for remote controlled cars.  Ridemakerz is a  place where you can choose what kind of car you like, customize it with everything from wheels to Hemi engines then attach it to a remote control chasis that you get to assemble side by side with other RIDEZ enthusiasts.  The car and truck selection is huge and continues to grow, especially with their latest release of Cars 2 vehicles.

We recently were invited to visit the Downtown Disney location to see the newest Cars 2 vehicles that are now available. My son picked out a slick Lightening McQueen, while my daughter and I each picked up Sally and individualized them to our own tastes with fancy tires and ground lights. My husband quickly chose Stealth Mater.


As the holder of the worldwide license for Cars and Cars 2 in the Custom Toy Car category, Ridemakerz are expanding their Cars offering with four new Cars 2 vehicles, including Lightning McQueen, Mater, Finn McMissile and Francesco. The Cars 2 line officially hit the shelves Monday, May 16. Additionally, RIDEMAKERZ is rolling out the Chevy Camaro RIDEZ, debuting in June.







On Father’s Day Weekend (Sat. & Sun.), Ridemakerz are offering families to come on down and build one RIDEZ and get one FREE! This deal won’t include the brand new Cars line, but other RIDEZ like the Ford Mustang, NASCAR racecar, Viper, Challenger and the rest are included. Have the kids bring in their Dad’s, for a truly memorable Father’s Day for all! (Exclusions apply. See store for details.)


  • The Downtown Disney District in Anaheim, California
  • Broadway at the Beach in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
  • Branson Landing in Branson, Missouri
  • Westgate City Center in Glendale, Arizona
  • The Downtown Disney District in Lake Buena Vista, Florida

RIDEMAKERZ is also located within select new-format Disney Stores nationwide.

We love Ridemakerz and I think it would be an amazing place for a birthday party. Grab your birthday boy or birthday girl, a few friends and be prepared for the birthday party of their dreams! It really is a special treat for a birthday party or special occasion such as Father’s Day.

Disclosure- I was not compensated for this post. We did have the opportunity to experience making some Ridez as a family.
