Don’t cook? You’re not alone. These par-cooked meal kits will do most of the work for you, so all you have to do is set a timer and take full credit.
February 1-15, all Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza & Grill locations in the Valley will be selling 12-inch heart-shaped pizza kits to benefit the American Heart Association. Each Valentine’s Day pizza kit comes with your choice of traditional, wheat or gluten-free dough, sauce, cheese and basil leaves. Pepperoni can be added for just a buck more. Because nothing says “I love you” like a “What is that? A heart?”-shaped attempt at cooking a pizza. Bake at 550 degrees for 10-12 minutes, then Instagram your creation with #IHeartSammys and tag @sammyswpizza for a chance to win a real dinner for two. $7-$10, 702-227-6000, SammysPizza.com.
Upgrade from Hot Pockets and be the sophisticated bachelor (or bachelorette) you always knew you could be. Cornish Pasty Co. sells a partially baked version of its signature pasty, the Oggie, stuffed with steak, potatoes onions and rutabaga, and a side of red wine gravy or ketchup. Just bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes, clear “What is a pasty” from your browser history, and then let it cool before eating. $6, 953 E. Sahara Ave, 702-862-4538, CornishPastyCo.com.
Pie Me Over’s par-baked rotisserie chicken potpie comes with carrots, peas, celery, onions, parsley, seasonings, a splash of dry sherry and a choice of regular, cheddar or habanero cheddar crust. The veggie pie comes with cauliflower instead of chicken, plus Parmesan cheese with a choice of regular or garlic crust. Pies come in individual, apartment (serves two), or large (serves four) sizes. Bake at 400 degrees for 30-40 minutes—just enough time to hide all evidence of Pie Me Over’s existence. $6.50-$19.50, 6070 S. Rainbow Blvd., 702-802-2658, PieMeOver.com.
