Over time I've learned that there are some recipe developers that I can trust every single time. So far, anyway. Of course everyone makes mistakes, but usually I can tell what a recipe will taste like from the ingredients list, and I wouldn't be likely to even try a recipe that didn't sound good to me.
That said, one of my most trusted sources for good recipes is Sue Moran, at The View from Great Island. Seeing some of Sue's recipes on Instagram sent me to visit her site. Once I did, I immediately signed up to get her emails. I've tried a number of
Sue's recipes and all have been fantastic; she just seems to have a
knack for developing excellent recipes. Her food photography skills are amazing also, making every recipe look so tempting.
This Christmas cookie recipe looks like a must-try for me: Copy Cat Harry and David Fruit Galettes. It's been awhile since I've seen a Harry and David catalog, so I had to look it up. Below is a screenshot:
Here is one of her glorious photos:

If we get a cool day this month, either I or Mr. T will likely be trying out this recipe!
(Edited to add: The winner of this week's give*away is Sue! Sue, I have sent you an email, so as soon as you can, send me your mailing address and I will get your little gift into the mail. And, for those who are interested, I will be posting about a little give*away each Tuesday, picking a winner each Friday, and notifying said winner on Saturday.)
