Louisiana State's quest for this year's national title took a big hit Friday when the school dismissed star cornerback Tyrann Mathieu for violating team policy. Or will LSU be just fine? The kid known as "Honey Badger" was an impact player in the secondary but the Tigers still have enough talent to challenge for this year's title. LSU debuts at No. 1 in the first USA Today coaches poll. It should be noted Mathieu was a non-factor in his team's 21-0 loss to Alabama in the BCS title game.

Roxana Jullapat, the pastry chef at Cooks County restaurant in West Hollywood, drizzles a spoonful of amber honey over a piece of honey-fig-walnut cake with roasted figs and burnt-honey ice cream. The honey she uses for the dessert, according to her menu, is Silver Lake honey, which, she says, often prompts the question from customers: "Are the bees hipsters who hang out at Intelligentsia drinking coffee and wearing skinny jeans?" Actually, they're honey bees who reside on an east Silver Lake hill in the backyard of Amy Seidenwurm and Russell Bates, drinking the nectar of the flowers of lavender, California buckwheat, sage, jasmine and eucalyptus, fig and citrus trees.

MINNEAPOLIS - If Toucan Sam heard what Malt-O-Meal is up to, it would throw him for a loop. It would make the Honey Nut Cheerios bee buzzing mad. The Minneapolis company has quietly notched impressive gains in the otherwise lumbering cold cereal market by mastering the knockoff. Its Tootie Fruities bear a striking resemblance to Froot Loops. As for its Honey Nut Scooters - where have we seen that classic oat ring before? Malt-O-Meal, recently rechristened MOM Brands Co., has built a lucrative cold cereal niche by delivering more product for the money than similar cereals made by industry titansGeneral Mills Inc.andKellogg Co. "Once people try us, we have a very loyal group of consumers," said Chris Neugent, MOM Brands' chief executive.

The research institution that brought you the fax machine and GPS has come up with another potentially world-changing invention: a bottle coating so slick that every last bit of ketchup slides out quickly and easily. In what could be a disruptive technology for the ketchup industry, an MIT professor has found a solution to getting the last clingy globs of ketchup (or honey or jelly) out of a bottle. No word yet on how it could affect ketchup sales, but the technology uses a new type of food-grade coating that has the slipperiness of a liquid but the rigidity of a solid.

Dear SOS: My husband and I recently spent a weekend in San Francisco and had a superb dinner at Perbacco. Everything was wonderful, but our dessert was one of the most delicious I've ever tasted. If you could get the recipe for its pine nut and honey tart, I could begin to cure my craving. Deborah Pollack Ventura Dear Deborah: I love everything about this tart. Not too sweet and with just the right touch of saltiness, this rustic dessert takes on light floral notes from the addition of Tasmanian honey, balancing the richness of the buttery pine nuts.

In the Land of Blood and Honey Sony Blu-ray, $40.99 Writer-director-producer Angelina Jolie's earnest Bosnian war film received more attention than it otherwise might've because of the presence of her name above its title, but it was subject to undue skepticism as well. This is a well-crafted drama, following the tricky relationship between a Serbian soldier played by Goran Kostic and a Muslim prisoner of war played by Zana Marjanovic. Given the grimness of the subject matter, Jolie drains the film of nearly all lightness and thrills, but as with a lot of actors turned directors, she helps her cast find the emotional truth in every scene and builds a compelling story.
