It blessedly dropped into the 60s for two days last week (before jumping back to the 80s), so on Sunday I decided to take advantage of the cooler weather and make this hearty slow cooked red wine beef stew. It was super simple to make, very comforting, and very wine-y!

Sweet. Tart. Savory. Rich. This tomato jam is so simple to make, yet so complexly flavored.
I made this rosemary focaccia the night before. Topped with a fluffy layer of earthy, tangy goat cheese, the rosemary focaccia stood up to the bold flavors of the tomato jam.

This Saturday I had a bag of brussels sprouts I HAD to use right away, before they went bad or were pushed to the back of the fridge by Sunday's farmer's market haul.
Brussels Sprouts, sauteed with molasses and garlic made for an odd breakfast, but would be a tasty side dish alongside a heartier main course (aka, not bagels).

The weather is finally cooling down a bit in Los Angeles (though it's supposed to be back in the 80's by Sunday!), which has left me frantically cooking as many warm-weather dishes as possible before it heats up again.
