No-Bake Chocolate Yule Log with Chocolate Mushrooms
I made different yule logs over the past few years, and they all came out too dry and tasted so-so. I tried this one last year and it was a total hit. I didn't use the liquor (kids) or the marmalade.. I just basically made the recipe that's on the wafer box. It looked great and tasted so decadent. I'll be making it again this year. Thanks for the idea! Edited to add: when I make whipped cream I usually add a little instant pudding mix. Partly because it adds flavor and sweetness, but mostly because the gelatin stabilizes the whipped cream.

Jam Filled Butter Cookies
Like others, I added a little vanilla and almond extract. Before making a thumbprint, I rolled the balls in coconut. I used blackberry and apricot preserves. They came out delicious!

Shrimp and Asparagus
This was delicious. Like others, I used MUCH less oil and butter.. probably 1/4 cup oil and 4-5 Tb of butter. I can NOT imagine using 2 STICKS of butter! I omitted the mushrooms because I didn't have them, but I used a little more asparagus and shrimp. I used spaghetti instead of egg noodles, used my mother-in-law's homemade grated cheese, and added just a touch more lemon juice. Tasted great.. even my picky husband thought so.
