Continuing the Descendants Saga is Descendants 3, once again featuring Mal, Evie, Carlos,and Jay. This time the group returns to the Isle of the Lost to recruit new students for Auradon Prep. However, this visit leads to a mess load of evil plots, impossible odds, and tough decisions, including the possibility that Villain Kids (VKs) will never leave the Isle of the Lost again. At least all of us fans won’t be locked up in anticipation because Descendants 3 is on DVD today!
By a stroke of luck, I was able to score a review copy.
NOTE; Spoilers are below.
I could write about the music, which I loved, the cast, which I adore, or the story, which has literally become one of my favorites. However, I want to focus on my favorite part of Descendants 3 which is a message that I think many people, young and old, can connect with. In a time where differences of opinion, looks, and even a political stand can turn some of the most normal people to hate and despair, it is wonderful to see a film share that our differences make us who we are. We can cast aside our hatred and work together to make this world great.
From the start, we have Mal’s fear of Uma, Villain Kids (VKs) fear of a new school, and a country afraid of Villains breaking through the barrier. It certainly doesn’t help when Hades tries to escape the Isle and attacks Mal, sucking her power away on national television. With so much fear, the peace and happiness in Auradon is short lived, especially when a marriage proposal turns a good girl into a villain..
This now bad girl attacks the kingdom by casting a sleeping spell on all who are in Auradon, leaving the VKs and their friends to try and save the day…if possible. However, in order to save the day, anger and hate must be put aside, they must accept each others differences and learn to get along. For Mal and Uma, that is easier said then done, because there is a lot of bad blood between them.
In this movie, however, bad blood is just a word and being rotten to the core is more of a connection then they realize. This means the enemies, Mal and Uma, find a way to work together and save Auradon, which includes an epic fight scene with an army of knights. Actually, this is one of my favorite scenes in the whole movie. With swords, knights, and awesome dance skills to match the perfect fight song, who wouldn’t like it? Check it out below.
If it wasn’t obvious, I absolutely love this film. It is a perfect ending to the Descendants Saga. The music is marvelous, the cast is fantastic, and the message is one that resonates with all. This is amazing and worth every star of the 5 stars.

I was watching a little TV yesterday evening (I love Christmas in July) and the ads came on. Usually I step away while the ads play or pause the TV and fast-forward after five minutes. I am not one to watch pharmaceutical ads or ads for financial advice, they get a little crazy with their “we can help you” routine. However, this time my hands were full with a nasty little skein of yarn (let’s just say it was a tangled mess), so the ads played their familiar scripts. Only this time I heard something worth while and discovered there is a website dedicated to the one and only Walnut at Walnuts.org.
As it turns out, Walnuts.org contains a lot of useful information including nutrition information, expert advice, and…RECIPES! For example, a little nutrition fact::
As a nutrient-dense food, walnuts are an excellent way to improve overall diet quality and are certified by the American Heart Association’s Heart-Check mark.
I suppose I better start adding Walnuts to my daily diet with all the facts and advice I am reading, which leads me to ways to include them in my diet…the free recipes! From BBQ Sliders to Carrot Cake Smoothies, the recipes contain slices of heaven for any occasion. One recipe I will try in the near future is the “Pork Walnut Meatballs in Coconut Walnut Soup“. It sounds weird but after trying peanut soup and loving it, this has to be good.
Of course my favorite all time recipes are usually the smoothies. I love smoothies. They are refreshingly sweet drinks that are perfect for any time of day…and the directions are usually one sentence, “combine all ingredients, blend, and serve”. One such delicious recipe is the “Mixed Berry Walnut Chia Smoothie“. Anything that combines strawberries and blueberries usually has my vote. I guess I will have to pay attention to TV ads more often.
Seasonal berries, California walnuts and chia seeds make this smoothie a refreshing superfood powerhouse that will keep you satisfied for hours. Try freezing peak season berries from the market for more intense fresh fruit flavor.
The Fourth of July is over but Summer is still here. With all the fun in the sun: adventures, fireworks, fishing, games, and more, we are all sure to be hungry by the time we arrive home. Thanks to the Dollar Tree Blog, we have an easy snack that is sure to make everyone smile!
These Star-Shaped pies embed a Strawberry and blueberry compote into a pie crust and baked to form the perfect snack. Personally I love dipping them in peanut butter, it nearly turns them into a PB&J (Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich), which just so happens to be one of my favorite sandwiches of all time.
I did change a couple of things from the original recipe. One: I added Peanut butter as an option because there are others like me looking to enjoy a creative PB&J pie. And Two: I included the recipe to make your own pie crusts. Of course, it is always an option to purchase two pre-made pie crusts, but I have learned nothing beats homemade. The recipe for a pie crust is simple and quick with only four ingredients. .
NOTE: If you are looking to buy your own pie crusts, you will no longer need the following ingredients: 3 cups flour, 1 tsp salt, 1 cup butter, and 4-6 tablespoons of water. Simply “X” those out and replace with two store bought pie crusts. You will also skip directions 2-4 and simply roll your store bought crusts on a flour surface and continue from directions number 6.
