WHY GOAT MILK???

Goat Milk is naturally enriched with high amounts of protein, fat, iron, Vitamin A, B6, B12, C, D, E and many more. It will nourish your skin while keeping you moisturized.

  • The pH of Goat Milk is nearly the same as that of human skin, helping to maintain a slightly acid mantle.
  • One of the main structural elements in living cells are lipids. Goat milk lipids are skin-compatible and are easily absorbed to moisturize and nourish our skin. No greasy residue.
  • Goat milk is rich in lactic acid and whey proteins. Lactic acid helps smooth skin by exfoliation while proteins enhance skin’s appearance.
  • Packed with Vitamins A&D and E — the first a powerful anti-oxidant, the second, a supplement for our “sunshine-needs”, and the third, adds moisture.
  • Contains a complex of trace minerals originating from fresh-grazed pastures to help skin naturally maintain its own moisture.

Goat milk has always been the most acceptable of all milks for people with sensitive digestive systems — and what’s good for the inside is just as good for the outside!

Olive Recipes Perfect for this Father’s Day

Finished mastering banana bread while cooking at home? Why not demonstrate your culinary prowess by baking an olive oil cake in honor of this coming Father’s Day? Gifting might be a good idea, but sharing your own cook delicious and healthy food will carry more love to the people you care about. Aimed to not only celebrate the Father’s Day itself, but also the many ways that the olive enriches the family lives via food, oil and tea (yes tea), Father’s Day is the perfect excuse to try making something new. This year, Bel Lavoro Olive Orchards (family owned/operated), home to Cut1886 Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Steep Echo Tea, is marking this coming Father’s Day by sharing some of their favorite recipes that showcase one of the world’s oldest (and healthy) fruits.

Created by Kim Branum, owner of Bel Lavoro, the recipes were developed using Cut1886 Extra Virgin Olive Oil and highlight a beautiful flavor profile. Medium bodied with a mix of herb and nut flavors and a touch of spice, the oil is perfectly balanced, crafted from a small batch and in limited quantities.

Cooking with olive oil provides many of the same health benefits that eating olives do, including the introduction of healthy fats. From olive oil cake to lemon bars and even ice cream, enjoy these olive-centric recipes and Happy Father’s Day.
Olive Oil Cake — Bel Lavoro style
Ingredients
  • 1 1/4 cups plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil; plus, more for pan
  • 1 cup sugar; plus, more
  • 2 cups cake flour
  • 1/3 cup almond flour or hazelnut flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons Grand Marnier
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated lemon zest
  • 3 tablespoon fresh Meyer lemon juice (if using regular lemon increase sugar to 1 cup).
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs
  • Special Equipment needed – A 9″-diameter springform pan
Preparation
  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Drizzle bottom and sides of pan with oil and use your fingers to coat. Line bottom with a round of parchment paper and smooth to eliminate air bubbles, coat parchment with more oil. Generously sprinkle pan with sugar and tilt to coat in an even layer. Whisk cake flour, almond/hazelnut flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl to combine and eliminate any lumps. Stir together Grand Marnier, lemon juice, and vanilla in a small bowl.
  • Using an electric mixer on high speed (use whisk attachment if working with a stand mixer), beat eggs, lemon zest, and 1 cup sugar in a large bowl until mixture is very light, thick, pale, and falls off the whisk or beaters in a slowly dissolving ribbon, about 3 minutes if using a stand mixer and about 5 minutes if using a hand mixer. With mixer still on high speed, gradually stream in 1¼ cups oil and beat until incorporated and mixture is even thicker. Reduce mixer speed to low and add dry ingredients in 3 additions, alternating with Grand Marnier mixture in 2 additions, beginning and ending with dry ingredients. Fold batter several times with a large rubber spatula, making sure to scrape the bottom and sides of bowl. Scrape batter into prepared pan, smooth top, and sprinkle lightly with sugar.
  • Place cake in oven and immediately reduce oven temperature to 350°F. Bake until top is golden brown, center is firm to the touch, and a tester inserted into the center comes out clean, 40–50 minutes. Let cake cool in pan 15 minutes.
  • Poke holes all over top of cake with a toothpick or skewer and drizzle with remaining 2 Tbsp. oil; let it absorb.  Let cool completely. For the best flavor and texture, wrap cake in plastic and let sit at room temperature at least a day before serving. Bake Ahead — this cake gets better. Cake can be baked 4 days ahead. Store tightly wrapped at room temperature.
Lemon Bars with Cut1886 Olive Oil
Ingredients
For the Crust
  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar, plus more for sprinkling
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 10 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into slices (or shredded)
For the Curd
  • 4 to 6 lemons
  • 1 ½ cups sugar
  • 2 large eggs plus 3 yolks
  • 1 ½ teaspoons cornstarch
  • Pinch of fine sea salt
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Confectioners’ sugar
  • Flaky sea salt, for sprinkling
Preparation
  • Preheat oven to 325°. Grease a 9″ x 9” baking pan and line it with parchment paper, leaving 1″ of overhang on the two long sides.
  • To make the crust, pulse together the flour, granulated sugar, confectioners’ sugar, lemon zest and salt in a food processor, or whisk together in a large bowl. Add butter and pulse (or use two knives or your fingers) to cut the butter into the flour until a crumbly dough forms. Press dough into prepared pan and bake crust for 23-35 minutes, or until golden.
  • While the shortbread is baking, prepare the lemon curd: Grate 1/2 tablespoon zest from lemons and set aside. Squeeze lemons to yield 3/4 cup juice.
  • In a small saucepan, whisk together lemon juice, sugar, eggs and yolks, cornstarch and fine sea salt over medium heat until boiling and thickened, 2 to 5 minutes. Make sure mixture comes to a boil and stays there for 30 seconds or so; you should see it thicken up before you take it off the heat. But once it boils do not cook for longer than 1 minute or you risk the curd thinning out again. Remove from heat and strain into a bowl. Whisk in butter, olive oil and lemon zest.
  • When the shortbread is ready, take it out of the oven and carefully pour the lemon curd onto the shortbread base; return the pan to the oven. Bake until topping is just set, 10 to 15 minutes more. Allow to cool to room temperature, then refrigerate until cold before cutting into bars. Sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar and flaky sea salt right before serving.
Bel Lavoro Olive Oil Ice Cream
Ingredients
  • 1 3/4 cups whole milk
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ cup plus 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Special Equipment – An ice cream maker
Preparation
  • Bring milk, cream, salt, and ½ cup sugar just to a simmer in a medium saucepan, stirring to dissolve sugar; remove from heat.
  • Whisk egg yolks and 2 Tbsp. sugar in a medium bowl until pale, about 2 minutes. Gradually whisk ½ cup hot milk mixture into yolks. Whisk yolk mixture into remaining milk mixture in saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, 2–3 minutes. Strain into a medium bowl set in a large bowl of ice water; whisk in oil. Let cool, stirring occasionally. Process custard in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions. Transfer ice cream to a container, cover, and freeze until firm, at least 4 hours.
  • Serve with fresh figs or add in some roasted pepitas or pine nuts for a twist.

Steep Echo “Arnold Palmer” with Bloom
Brew pot of Bloom tea — use large tea pot with 3-4 sachets
Let cool (if you want to use honey for sweetener mix into warm tea)
Pour into large pitcher
Squeeze juice of 1-2 lemons (depending on size)
Fill pitcher with ice
Sweeten to taste (sugar, honey, stevia or simple syrup)
Garnish with fresh mint and lemon slices

Note:  Bloom is high in immune-boosting ingredients.  We like to sweeten with Manuka honey to keep our systems strong and healthy.  This is a great treat for allergy season — and keeping us all safe and healthy.  Enjoy.

Urbanista Launches “London” ANC Earphones for Sleek “Sound & Silence” Experience

Silence the outside world
or let the sound in
with Urbanista’s new active noise cancelling earphones

Urbanista, the Swedish lifestyle audio brand, announces the launch of Urbanista London, an active noise cancelling true wireless earphone, designed to put the listener in control. London is the latest in the brand’s true wireless headphone line-up and lives up to their tagline: “Designed for Life in Motion.” Boasting an in-ear style that combines secure fit and crystal clear, isolated sound with comfort, simplicity, and reliability, Urbanista London allows listeners to either completely block out the outside world or hear their surroundings without interruption to their listening experience.

Priced at $149 MSRP,
London is available in four stylish colors
and boasts full compatibility with iOS, Android and Windows devices.

A Sound Experience Under Your Control

Urbanista London is designed to provide the perfect fit and is comfortable for long periods of wear. Sound design for Urbanista London was developed by industry-leading acoustical engineer Axel Grell. “We have worked incredibly hard to perfect and fine-tune the sound of Urbanista London. The tiny details make for an earphone with incredible clarity and natural sound reproduction with ground-shaking bass and smooth highs,” said Grell. “The micro-speakers I have selected are at the acoustical heart of these earphones. Urbanista London boasts a wide frequency range with very low distortion, an important feature especially for an active noise cancelling earphone.”

Whether you feel like blocking out the noise of a busy morning commute or would like to hear what is around you, Urbanista London puts the listener in control. With the new active noise cancelling (ANC) feature, at the press of a button, users are able to completely switch off the outside world. Listeners can otherwise remain conscious of their surroundings while enjoying a strong audio experience with Ambient Sound Mode. This feature enables listeners to switch to a voice-enhancing mode while listening to music or podcasts, allowing outside sounds in and ensuring the ability to hear any surrounding voices, loud and clear.

Urbanista believes earphones should be intelligently designed and complement the user’s lifestyle. This is why Urbanista London earbuds have a built-in ear detection technology that is programmed to pause when the sensors detect that one bud has been removed from the listener’s ear. The music will stop playing completely when both earbuds are removed.

Inspired by the City

Urbanista London is packed with style and creativity, and its earphones are inspired by the vibrant and busy city. So that listeners can express their personal style, London is available at launch in Midnight Black (black), Rose Gold (pink), White Pearl (white), and Dark Sapphire (blue), and comes with a sleek and slim color-matched charging case. London has an IPX4 waterproof rating and is therefore protected from splashing water from any angle.

Designed for Life in Motion

Staying connected is easy with London. The latest in 5.0 Bluetooth connectivity means London is compatible with iOS, Windows or Android devices and allows users to have a voice assistant available at the touch of a button. While on the go, the built-in noise cancelling dual microphone allows users to make or receive stereo phone calls, adjust the volume, play, and stop.

London provides a playtime of five hours, and with four additional full charges from its case, for a total playtime of 25 hours. The indicator lights let users know when they are out of charge. Users can conveniently charge the earphones in less than one hour on any Qi-certified pad or via the USB Type-C cable, straight out of the box.

Anders Andreen, CEO of Urbanista, comments:  “London is a truly special product and we are very excited to welcome this model to our true wireless family. The small and ergonomic design provides the perfect fit that looks great, and with the active noise cancelling and ambient sound features, London is perfect for life in motion.”

Urbanista London will be available online at www.urbanista.com as of May 25 2020.

Time Concepts Releases New ICON Signature Series Watch Inspired by American Motorcycle Legend, Roland Sands

With all of this time at home, Dad will be more than ready for a special gift on Father’s Day. I wanted to let you know about a new signature series watch inspired by motorcycle legend, Roland Sands.

Sands’ namesake watch is meant to reflect his zeal for racing and love for the motorcycling community and would be a great gift idea for Dad…even if he’s not into racing. The watch is rugged, tough, and dependable (just like Dad), crafted with a satin brushed stainless case with screw case back, a scratch resistant mineral crystal, and 100 meters water resistance.  The strap is made of USA-sourced Horween leather,famous for its beauty and durability.

Latest Icon Series Watch Designed to Exemplify Sands’ Legacy of Racing

Time Concepts, a watch firm known for making high-quality timepieces at remarkably affordable prices, has officially launched its newest series of watches under the Szanto brand, the Szanto ICON Roland Sands Signature Series.

Roland Sands is an American motorcycle racer and designer of custom high-performance motorcycles. In his career as a professional motorcycle racer he won the 1998 AMA 250GP National Champion road racer championship, and today is also an award-winning designer of custom performance motorcycles.  As the owner and founder of Roland Sands Designs, a company that sells custom motorcycle parts, he is known for unique designs and has developed a cult following around the world.

Sands’ namesake watch is meant to reflect his zeal for racing and love for the motorcycling community. His ICON watch was designed with Roland involved in all design details. “The unique watch design is meant to invoke the feeling of instruments on a bike and reflects his individualism, as is seen in his motorcycle creations, and exhibits a very vintage character,” said Time Concepts Founder Barry Cohen. “Roland was instrumental in the overall design of his watch series.  We’re eager to share it with his fans.”

The watch is rugged, tough, and dependable, crafted with a satin brushed stainless case with screw case back, a scratch resistant mineral crystal, and 100 meters water resistance.  The strap is made of USA-sourced Horween leather, famous for its beauty and durability – it will quickly pick up the look of well-worn motorcycle boots and jackets and take on a vintage patina adding more character the longer it is worn.  The straps feature easy on/off fingernail pull spring pins to allow for strap changes in a matter of seconds. However, the most impressive aspect of the design is raised padded ribs on the strap that emulate the beautiful stitch treatments seen on Roland’s signature jackets that are revered and collected all over the world.

The Szanto ICON Signature Series are small collections of watches tied to famous individuals who have made their mark in a variety of fields. Time Concepts’ ICONs are masters of their respective crafts and all share an appreciation and affinity for quality timepieces. Other industry leaders in the ICON series include Indy Series and Indy 500 Champion Danny Sullivan, and renowned big-wave surfer, Shane Dorian, both of whom also worked closely with Time Concepts to define, design and develop a timepiece that connects to their respective styles and personalities, all while maintaining the Szanto commitment to excellence. In this way, ICON watches reflect the tastes and interests of the people who inspired them.

“I’m honored to partner with Time Concepts on the design and introduction of the Roland Sands Icon Watch,” said Sands. “The resulting watch is a timepiece that embodies the love and passion that I have for racing, the motorcycling community and innovative design.”

Szanto ICON Signature Series: Roland Sands watches retail for $225 and are available for purchase online at timeconcepts.net.

Cohen launched Time Concepts as a platform to develop Private Label watches after receiving ongoing requests to develop watches for other brands or retailers, and later added their own Szanto vintage brand and the Hawaiian Lifeguard Assn brand of dive watches.
