Dear SOS: I absolutely love the butterscotch brownie at Clementine in Los Angeles . It's chewy and full of brown-sugary goodness — the perfect afternoon treat or sweet for a picnic. I'd love to be able to make it at home. Would you be able to find the recipe for me? Mindy Nyby Los Angeles Dear Mindy: Tender, rich and temptingly sweet, Clementine's butterscotch brownies balance that brown-sugary goodness with a nice hint of salt to make this the perfect treat for almost any occasion.

A cold breeze blew back the petals of a wild-haired daisy, causing her to shriek with terror. "My beautiful hair!" she screamed as she watched her orange petal hair fly away. The grass shook with laughter, and the flowers giggled, but the air tasted of cold wind, and the soil was bitter. Sophie longed for a time when the ground was soft and warm under her roots and the sunlight was butterscotch sweet. She trotted down the sidewalk, trying to ignore the blades of grass that tittered as she passed.

You're handed a glass of a familiar holiday drink, and a deliciously unfamiliar aroma greets you: toasted coconut with hints of Tahitian vanilla, cinnamon and Jamaican allspice. You raise the glass to your lips and are surprised by the satiny texture -- nearly thick enough for a spoon but souffle-like. The flavor is rich and harmonious -- warm, caramel notes of dark Jamaican rum playfully flirting with the slight sweetness of coconut milk. It's the perfect tropical eggnog for a brisk holiday evening.

Los Angeles' future-famous designers create styles that mirror this city. The trends they reflect are imitated throughout the world. Here, some young men and women--offspring of already-famous Hollywood families--show the designs that show the way. TIM KELLY Son of Gene Kelly "No, I don't dance. I'm on the other side of the camera. I was a photographer, but I've just finished a screenplay and will direct two music videos next month. I love New York and Europe, but I know I'll end up here.

For years, people went looking for Los Angeles Historical-Cultural Monument No. 137: a Dutch-themed hot chocolate shop that was one of Ernest Batchelder's earliest commissions. They came to a worn-looking building on West 6th Street downtown expecting to see the Arts and Crafts master tile-maker's murals of Dutch maidens in wooden clogs. What they found instead was a small, drab arcade, with stalls selling bargain vitamins, perfume, jewelry and hats. Tile was visible on the ceiling and walls, poorly lighted by fluorescent bulbs.

Uncle Zeke's of Lake City, Calif., sells old-fashioned homemade butterscotch candy that slowly melts in the mouth (it's not for chewing). Some people might find it has too much molasses flavor, but not when it appears in Uncle Zeke's other product, luscious 2-ounce chocolate chip cookies with butterscotch chunks. Both products are made with fresh butter. Uncle Zeke's butterscotch cookies or cracked butterscotch candy, 1 pound of either, $15 plus $3.
