Super Suppers: Dinners to Go Made Easy for Families

Updated on December 17, 2012

I am a horrible eater - in fact - if my husband didn't regularly cook dinner, I'd probably eat junk food most of my life. It's not that I'm a bad cook, because I can cook, it's just that cooking is not a priority in my life, especially since my children are adults now, grown and gone.

That's why I'm excited about my new discovery in Fremont, Ca. called "Super Suppers", owned and operated by friend Becky Carleton.

Although I had known and heard about Super Suppers, I hadn't been in touch with Becky for several years so had never visited her store. Recently though, after painting some holiday Christmas windows for her at her business, I got to check out her place. The big bonus was when my friend sent me out the door with 2 dinners, frozen and ready to pop in the oven. Lucky me!

Boy I didn't know what a treat I was in for!

Too busy to cook? Easy take-out dinners!

I would suppose there are many people like me, busy and sometimes too busy to do the right thing - like actually cook a nutritious home-cooked meal. It's not that we don't want to, but it's just plain hard sometimes to take the time to plan a menu, go to the store to get the items you need, fight the traffic to get back home and then on top of it prepare the meal. Unless you are a stay at home mom (and even then you are probably extremely busy just keeping the kids in check), you are probably alot like me, looking for the easiest way out for dinner.

In comes "Super Suppers!"

My husband and I sat down to the pre-prepared meal from Super Suppers with all the ingredients and calorie information listed on a decal on the top of the pan (good stuff to know, for sure) and all we had to do was pop our dinner in the oven and wait for it too cook. No mess, no travel time or grocery time involved.

Within a short time we had out first meal from Super Suppers which was stuffed green peppers. I am pretty picky about my stuffed green peppers so this would be interesting, I thought. After I took my first bite, I was absolutely amazed at how tasty the green peppers and the stuffing were. I really loved the meal and so did my husband. 5 stars!!

The next meal we ate the following day was the Chicken Green Chile Enchilada Casserole. Same thing - just delicious! Another 5 stars for a delicious, healthy and hassle free meal.

About Super Suppers

When you compare the prices of Super Suppers meals as opposed to preparing your own, it just makes sense to buy an already prepared meal without the hassle. Not only are the meals great, but the service is stellar. You can order ahead and they even do large events like special events for businesses and local companies. You can buy your entree, your appetizer and even dessert for a complete meal to serve at home. You can also purchase gift certificates to gift a friend or family member.

A little more about Super Suppers:

  • Super Suppers Fremont was established in 2006 by Fremont resident Becky Carleton.
  • The store started as a meal preparation studio but was converted to a Take 'N Bake store in 2008.
  • All food is prepared by hand in the store's kitchen using the finest restaurant grade ingredients.
  • They do not add any salt to their foods.
  • All appetizers, entrees, side dishes and desserts are frozen after they are prepared and kept in their Grab 'N Go Freezers.

    really nice hub. im happy for you that you've found a cheaper and quicker way to eat food instead of taking the time to actually cook the food. i myself am not the best of cooks so this would be very convenient for me as well. voted up.

    @Sinea) I so agree. We lead such busy lives, services like this make our lives a whole lot easier! Thanks for reading my friend!

    @Virginia) Yes they are actually a franchise so it might be a Super Suppers. Thanks for coming by my AP buddy!

    @Bob) So nice to "see" you Bob. I like to cook too (well used too) but am lucky my husband still likes to. Perhaps if I grew more of my own vege's my cooking passion would come back!

    Could use a business like that here. I enjoy cooking but there are nights when this service would be most useful.

    We have two different businesses in our area of Texas which do a similar service. I actually love to cook and so I haven't used them, but I think this is a great way to have some home cooking without all the work! I have eaten some of the suppers made by our businesses and they were also terrific. I think one of ours may be called Super Suppers too--maybe it is a franchise?

    This is a genius idea, Dorsi. And I agree with you, if all of the work is done for you, why not? Hope they open up someday in my neck of the woods. Fremont CA is just a little too far away to make it feasible. (I live on the east coast.) LOL
