Chicken Lo Mein
Tweaking is necessary. I'm going to try the oyster sauce suggested by the "Most Helpful Positive Review" if I ever make it again. I loathe mushrooms so I made this with cabbage (actually coleslaw mix in a bag since I didn't want to fool around with cutting cabbage), matchstick carrots, snow peas, and bamboo shoots. Other than the vegetable mix no changes were made though I'm tempted to add a splash more vinegar or something to perk it up a bit. Oyster sauce or vinegar may do it. It's an okay sub for when I don't feel like going to my fave Chinese place, but reality, it's cheaper and easier to drive to pick up my fave take out. Why mess with what the professionals have perfected?

Jam Filled Butter Cookies
I added a 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract as per the "Most Helpful Critical Review" suggestion. I looked at other recipes that were similar to this and most of them were calling for almond or vanilla extract. I went with almond extract figuring that it would work well with raspberry, apricot, or strawberry jam. The cookies are delicious! I only had one volcano cookie where the jam broke loose from its cookie containment. A friend of mine just suggested lemon extract to go with the raspberry but I'll only try that if I can find pure lemon extract. There is nothing worse than that fake lemon taste. I'd also cut it down to 1/4 teaspoon or even less since lemon tends to be a stronger flavor. Either way, these are quite delish! I suppose you could even put lemon curd in the center instead of jam. Endless possibility! I used the rounded handle end of my spatula to make the indent for the jam and piped in the jam with a sandwich bag with the end cut off. The leftover jam was easily taken care of by simply squeezing it back into the jar. I'm also considering drizzling chocolate over the tops for a chocolate raspberry cookie or for an orange marmalade dark chocolate drizzled cookie.
