Easy Low-Carb Raspberry Mousse Pastry Cups

I tend to see recipes as a jumping block, a reference point for a transformation. So it felt a little odd that when I was offered a promotional copy of Dorie Greenspan’s new Baking Chez Moi: Recipes from My Paris Home to Your Home Anywhere, and the challenge to “recreate Dorie’s Rugelach recipe or create my own” I was all over it.

Nut-Crusted Haddock with Farmers Market Vegetable Saute
