Pancakes are a natural for breakfast, but what about dinner? Go ahead, indulge yourself. Light and fluffy, these pancakes have that perfect buttermilk tang. But what sets them apart is a touch of olive oil -- rich and fruity, a good olive oil adds wonderful fragrant notes. And chopped dark chocolate adds pure magic to every bite (doesn't chopped dark chocolate add a little magic to just about anything?). Douse the pancakes with a little honey and fresh mint -- or garnish however you'd like -- and dig in. The whole dish comes together in half an hour.

Shaq arrived on Thursday and Magic hurried back. Vlade's deep in Charlotte smoking Cubans by the pack. Goodbye Lynch and Peeler, your play's as sweet as honey. We'd love to keep you both, but we just don't have the money. SEAN GREGSON Rancho Palos Verdes

After reading James Flanigan articles from Israel, I wonder. The Arabs have the money, Israel has the technology, if they would forget their hate, the region could be a land of milk and honey. CHARLES BALSHAM Studio City

Villains Tavern in downtown L.A. has introduced its new spring cocktail menu featuring fresh options for sunny days. A standout tipple is the lovely Loki created by mixologist Dave Whitton. Cold vodka infused with earthy green tea is tempered with silky-sweet honey peach syrup, tart lemon and a hint of fragrant sage to create a light and refreshing drink that is best consumed after a day spent in the open air. Lucky for you, Villains has one of the most comfortable outdoor patios in L.A., so stopping for a drink doesn't mean going indoors.

Awash in cool whites and low lights, the Hungry Cat is the perfect place to toss back a leisurely after-work cocktail or two. Especially on weekdays, when many of the restaurant's alcohol-laced libations are half price from 3 to 6 p.m., leaving you with more money to slurp down a few succulent oysters from the fantastic raw bar. And although you might feel compelled to drink a crisp, white wine with your bivalve bonanza, there is a seasonal cocktail...

STAR JONES REYNOLDS may have stabbed Barbara Walters in the back, but I felt like Robin Abcarian stabbed me in the heart when she said that "Barbara Walters is a liar" in her crass, mean-spirited commentary ["The Truth? It's a Point of View," June 30]. Surely Abcarian knows the difference between a bold-faced lie and a little white lie (fib) designed to protect the ego, self-esteem or mental health of a valued friend/colleague/spouse. Think, "Honey, do you think this new $300 dress makes me look fat?"

It's likely you will get lots of mail about Jonathan Gold's doughnut article ("Searching for the Hole Truth," Sept. 27) asking, "how could you have omitted such and such a doughnut-hole joint?" Well, you missed the boat on two counts in my opinion. The Donut Inn in the Marina del Rey shopping center on Admiralty Way makes two kinds of whole-wheat honey doughnuts--the best anywhere. Also available are the hard-to-find plain honey whole-wheat and a glazed variety. And though you may not have been impressed by Randy's buttermilk doughnut, I think its cake doughnuts surpass many, many others.
