One of the many stages of preparedness during a health crisis is loading up on food. You want to make sure your fridge and pantry are stocked with the essentials. In Miami, that means securing your stash of pastelitos. Fortunately, Cuban staple Vickys Bakery makes it so you don’t have to leave the house to get them: Their frozen variety packs of ready-to-bake guava, cheese and guava-and-cheese pastelitos can be delivered right to your door.

Each box is $20 and includes a dozen pastries and the parchment paper you’ll need to bake them on, plus clear, printed instructions to lessen the chances of any potential screw-ups. Orders ship Monday through Thursday and arrive as quickly as one business day. Jump on this now to make sure you’re ready for Monday.

We had a contributor give it a go and we’re told the results were glorious: 144 layers of buttery, flaky dough as fresh and fragrant as if you’d picked one up during your regular cafecito break. It left his whole house smelling like a Cuban bakery, which is probably the best air-freshener you can ask for if you’re working from home this week.
