And in doing so, we look for ways to economize—not only our budget, but our most precious commodity as well: time. To that end, we've put together our most valuable resources to help you create crowd-pleasing, braised comfort food in your own kitchen.

New Year's is a time to reflect on the past and consider what the future holds. When looking back on the year just passed, certain things stand out and become embedded in our lives.
A new year is also a very personal occasion to celebrate: Do you just go to bed and hope for the best or do you bring in the new year with fanfare, gusto, and a positive outlook?
We decided to ask the Lobel family of butchers what food finds stood out most for them in 2019. And, we asked about their plans for New Year's Eve and Day.

Picture yourself sitting down to a warm and cozy meal with your family. You have all the components ready to go: the table is set, the drinks are poured, and family is just sitting down. On the table you've got creamy mashed potatoes and a crisp garden salad. What comes out of the oven? Mark Lobel would say, "My meatloaf recipe!" Mark loves using Lobel's All-Purpose Savory Seasoning so much that he created this recipe just to showcase it!

Anyone who has traveled and eaten in Tuscany knows that meat loaves in all their glory are a big deal. Tuscan cooks usually made loaves with finely ground leftover braised or roasted meats.
While many of Tuscany's offerings still are made from cooked meats, others, such as this time-honored loaf, are made from ground raw meat.

Every fluffy mashed, crunchy roasted, crispy fried, or creamy boiled potato cries out for a bath of concentrated richness of pan juices treated right.
Leftover gravy need never go to waste. So versatile, you’ll run out of gravy before you run out of ways to incorporate it into other recipes—from pot pies, hot sandwiches, and rice dishes to a topping for breakfast hash or Benedict-style egg entrees.
But don’t worry, you can always make more.

Behind every great steak, chop, or cutlet, there’s an equally great roast.
And at this time of year, summertime grilling of individual cuts gives way to indoor preparation of larger meals for family and entertaining during the fall and winter.
So, if you want a sure-fire hit, take a look at where your grilling favorites come from and you’ll have a roast to please every palate.
For example, filet mignon are individual steaks cut from a whole tenderloin roast, or more specifically from the center of the tenderloin, called the chateaubriand. Strip steaks come from a whole shell, also called a strip-loin. Rib steaks come from the whole rib.
So chances are, if you have a favorite steak or chop, the roast from which it originates will likely become your favorite roast as well.

Some foods just have an affinity for one another. Take pancakes or waffles, for example. They are so inextricably bound to maple syrup that you have to think twice about what else you might put on them—besides butter, of course.
