Lumpia (Shanghai version)
I think one ingredient that is definitley missing is FISH SAUCE! Replace the salt with 1 tablespoon of fish sauce. Also, test your filling by cooking a little in a pan to adjust the seasoning before you roll! I always use a combo of proteins, I've done shrimp and chicken, chicken and beef, pork and shrimp, pork and chicken etc. I like to get one lean and one fatty meat to balance out flavors and textures. Another secret for THE BEST TASTING FILLING IS to add a dash of sweet chilli sauce. The sugar and peppers in it balance everything out! Also be a bit sparing with the soy! 1/4 cup is waaay too much.

The Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie
I'm a cookie monster and had to find a recipe that allows me to eat as many as possible. I had to scour the Internet to find a recipe that used oil.. I read that you can substitute part oil for butter in mostly any ratio you want as long as the wet/dry/fat proportions stay the same as the recipe. I did 1 stick of unsalted butter and about a half cup of vegetable oil. Lessen the amount of almond extract because it takes over! I'd do 1/4 teaspoon almond extract and more vanilla. I also did a little less white sugar and a little more brown. I also added a 1/4 teaspoon of instant coffee since I was using a 61 percent vhalrhona bar ! It really accentuated the quality of the chocolate.. This recipe yielded an amazing flat cookie that was crispy on the edges and soft and chewy in the middle. The more amazing part was that these cookies retained their moisture and stayed chewy for days.. Though it really didn't take me that long to eat em all.. Play with this recipe and you will be soo happy.. It seems like the perfect recipe to get all iron chef and add all sorts of things like chilli flakes? Ginger? Black pepper? Toffee? I'm on a cookie rampage!
