  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.

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.

Dear SOS: Just back from some choice New York City restaurants and hoping to replicate in L.A.: Any chance you could get the recipe for the compost cookie from Momofuku? Thanks for taking requests! Wenise Wong Los Angeles Dear Wenise: These cookies are like taking every single one of my favorite snacks and packaging them in a simple, compact, magical treat. Chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, coffee, graham cracker crust, pretzels and even potato chips are tossed in with a rich cookie dough to turn out something truly inspired.

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.

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.

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.

DEAR SOS: I recently had the most delicious butterscotch bread pudding at the Boulevard in San Francisco. It was, without a doubt, the lightest pudding and most interesting presentation I've seen. Could you try to obtain the recipe? DEANNE VANDERNOOT Pacific Palisades DEAR DEANNE: Chef Nancy Oakes of Boulevard sent this recipe for the pudding with its crumb topping and caramelized walnuts. Yummy.

I used to be a staunch ABC man. "Anything But Chardonnay" (and Cabernet) was my motto. I was simply bored with the sameness of the oak-flavored grape syrups so many California vintners were producing from the state's two predominant varieties. But as a confirmed evolutionist, I've taken delight in observing the California wine industry's rapid progress toward lofty goals. Well, relatively rapid, given that changes in vineyards and wineries take years to show up in wines.
