Diploma-cookies -- Let's see, if you've got food trucks, absinthe, poker and Lamborghini lined up, it must be the 5th annual L.A. Winefest, June 5-6 at Raleigh Studios. (There are also sake tastings, Scotch, bourbon ... do you see the trend here?)

-- If you want to drink raw milk, is that your business? Or the government's business?

-- The alleged murder-for-hire plot involving TV chef Juan-Carlos Cruz takes another twist, with the suspicion that fertility problems were partly to blame.

-- Wynonna hearts the Cracker Barrel Old Country Store: The pair have joined forces to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project. [Cracker Barrel]

-- Press releases are usually "filed" immediately upon receipt. But this was too cute too keep to myself: The Land O'Lakes people suggest diploma cookies for your favorite grad. I totally get that. But they also suggest that you tuck one of these downloadable fortunes inside. Not sure what fortunes have to do with graduation, unless it's a "you'll need all the good fortune you can get in this economy, kid" kind of message. You'll find more, plus other recipes, at the Land O'Lakes website.

-- The Popcycle -- L.A.'s newest traveling food, with flavor combos such as Salty Cucumber Lime, Lemon Mint Blueberry and Cantaloupe with Anise -- goes for a test spin. [LAist]

-- You have to click on this link just to see the dog picture. That, and to find out what nutrition guru Marion Nestle thinks you should be feeding Fido and Fluffy. [Time
