Github skill-sample-nodejs-howto code now working? Request to AWS code no longer handled properly

I launched a skill utilizing the Githhub how-to skill kit early this year and it was working perfectly until a few weeks ago... I updated an external function (=./recipes), meaning I added more recipes and attempted to resubmit the skill to give the user more recipes to choose from. The skill passed certification, but now no longer works properly. A user can no longer open the skill with their echo device or interact with it in any fashion. I've tried to resubmit the original version of the skill, but this now fails certification every time for "Issue with endpoint validation".

Is the code for the how-to-skill-kit no longer functional with current Alexa Developer guidelines? What steps do I need to take to to get the code working so I don't have a live skill that doesn't work?

Question, where can I find the external recipes data folder/repository so that I can edit it for my skill? I'm using the same how-to skill for a different function involving counseling, but I'm stuck because I don't know how to change the actual recipe instrucitons.

Which skill is this happening on? Have you checked your json return against hte json interface? It's possible you've misformatted something in the recipes folder which has led to invalid input.
