Pork Chops Capri
The consensus feels the taste is bland and the sauce too watery, but since I had most of the ingredients, I decided to try it with a few modifications. Since its tomato-based, it definitely needs some garlic and onions. Most pizziola sauced and marinara sauces have that so you can't go wrong. My fix so the taste is not bland - add 2 cloves minced garlic and 1/2 cup chopped onion about a minute before the chops are done browning. Also increase spices (I used oregano, fresh parsley and crushed red pepper to the sauce). To fix the watery issue - in lieu of 23-ounces of tomato juice (that is a lot of liquid) I used a 14-ounce can of diced tomatoes and 1/2 cup of tomato sauce to thicken it up. My only other change was I used slightly under the 1/2 cup water recommended since this also contributes to soupy consistency. Other than that, i rate this a "4" and would make again like this!

Slow Cooker Bolognese
I love LOVE this recipe! I've made several times and always use meatloaf mix so you also have some ground pork and ground veal with the beef for added flavor. Also I add some finely chopped celery and some chopped celery leaves. Serve over tortellini or cavatelli and this recipe is fantastic!!

Grandma's Favorite Chicken
I've made this recipe many times and love it. Its so versatile because you can add as much as you like or omit what you dislike. We like it a bit on the hot side so I add some jarred hot pepper slices to give it a little kick, and some italian seasonings (oregano and basil). The juice is so good for dipping your bread into, and I don't even use the chicken stock (as some reviewers suggested) because we have to watch our sodium.
