Reviewed Salsa Stoup With Avocado Smash And Double-Decker Baked Quesadillas

Feb 23, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Very tasty! My husband's only complaint was that the quesadillas were too plain - something many would prefer as they merely dunk those into the avocado smash or some sour cream. I think it was a success, if I were to repeat it, he would have me add some chicken to the quesadillas though."

Tasty, but why oh why use regular bread? Felt odd. Easy to make, was yummy with watercress."

Delicious! I used squash I steam-baked myself, then mashed into the recipe. My husband was surprised how yummy it was!! Totally worth making again :)"

too much sage, the ragout was bland in comparison, really liked the spinach. But all together it was so much work and stress. Not worth it for a mediocre recipe."

Really not a fan of blue cheese, it turns out. It overpowered the whole thing. Too many mushrooms as well. It was okay, nothing amazing."

Tasty but not incredibly so. The salad needs more to it."

Screaming hot will destroy your steaks and potentially your pan as well. I learned the hard way."

This might end up being my fave lamb chop recipe. The spices are perfect! Don't skimp, get the really good lamb, and you will not regret it. "

Tasty, but too much meat, I think. Also, my husband is not a fan of dunking his bread so we skipped on that part."

Don't know where I went wrong but wow what a mess. I would grate the cheese if ever I made this again, and try to crisp the fries more than asked. Tasty mess."

It was okay, but lacking. We are not adventurous with cheese, so we used mozza and cheddar instead. Should use italian bread crumbs for some added flavour. Tasted like stuffing!!"

Tasted fine, though many of the ingredients are not big in this house. And I could never replace my dad's version of Shepherd's Pie! I am biased."
