Plum and Pluot Galette

  Today we are talking cookbooks.  Our firsts and favorites. It is like first kisses and dates….but less awkward. Mom and grandma both had very similar if not identical versions of The Betty Crocker Cookbook.  Red, with what I imagine were once white pages but now light brown with age and use.  Pages torn and…
