Duck Pizza? Yes, you hear right! And We Love It

As you may know I am Asian and I have some special taste different than my husband, who is a Sicilian and Scottish mix. For a mix couple, the most important thing is we have to eat together, but sometimes it is difficult since I have a really authentic Asian taste. Luckily, my husband loves exploring different types of foods. He loves traveling, he loves adventures. Lucky me!

Recently, we did something pretty amazing – we combined my Asian taste with his Italian cook together. We made a Asian duck pizza! You can see the photo above, it is a full-topped pizza. We love adding a lot of toppings on the pizza because we are not thick pizza dough fans. This time, we added duck brat pieces for proteins. It works out amazing.

The duck brats are sooooo juicy. They come from Maple Leaf Farms. There are tons of great duck products and recipes on their website, and their duck products quality are super great.

Eyenimal Num’Axes and Ideal Pet Products Release New and Updated Products for Pets and Their Owners

France-based Eyenimal Num’Axes, in partnership with California-based Ideal Pet Products, is excited to unveil a variety of new and updated products for pets and their owners, including stimulating cat toys, pet monitoring cameras and more. The union of two leading French pet products companies, Eyenimal Num’Axes has a long-standing reputation for developing innovative products that combine cutting-edge technology with intuitive design. All Eyenimal Num’Axes items are designed and manufactured in France and distributed in the U.S. by Ideal Pet Products, the company’s exclusive supplier for North America.

The brand-new products that Eyenimal Num’Axes and Ideal Pet Products are planning to release include:

•   Crazy Ribbons. Designed to keep indoor cats active, motivated and entertained, Crazy Ribbons is a two-in-one interactive toy featuring dangling ribbons that turn on by themselves and stimulate cats’ hunter instincts. This product can be operated with or without an automatic timer.

•   Chase Me! Like Crazy Ribbons, the Chase Me! is an interactive toy designed to help indoor cats stay engaged. It features a motorized wand with ribbons that move and change directions, attracting cats’ attention and encouraging them to play. The Chase Me! has four speed settings — slow, medium, fast and random — to keep cats entertained for hours.

•   RGB Light Collar. Designed to help dogs stay safe and visible after dark, the RGB Light Collar features fixed or flashing LED lights that can change color, from red to green to blue, at the push of a button. The light emitted by this waterproof collar is visible at a distance of up to 500 meters. Available in sizes small, medium and large, the RGB Light Collar comes with a USB charging cable, as well as battery life of up to 30 hours, for convenient, long-lasting use.

In addition to these exciting new products, Eyenimal Num’Axes will be releasing updated versions of the following items:

•   Pet Vision Live Full HD. Many pet owners wonder what their beloved furry friends do when they are away from home. Eyenimal Num’Axes provides intriguing insight through monitoring cameras like the Pet Vision Live Full HD, which allows owners to conveniently view their pets’ activities from a smartphone or tablet. This camera may also be helpful in identifying unwanted or worrisome pet behaviors, which may then be resolved by referring to a trainer or veterinarian. The Pet Vision Live Full HD is equipped with 1920-by-1080-pixel video resolution, a wireless connection, night vision up to 10 meters, a motion detection system, a two-way audio system with recording capabilities and more.

•   Pet Videocam. The compact, ultralight Pet Videocam allows owners to follow their pets everywhere, capturing their daily adventures and discoveries. This waterproof, wearable device features 1280-by-720-pixel video resolution, night vision, motion detection and a battery life of up to 90 minutes (with a USB charging cable included).

•   Ultrasonic Bark Control. Unwanted barking is a common annoyance for dog owners. Conveniently worn on a dog’s collar, the Ultrasonic Bark Control device from Eyenimal Num’Axes offers a way to correct this problem by enabling owners to deliver beeps or other types of stimulations when their pets bark excessively.

When developing all of their products, Eyenimal Num’Axes begins by conducting research into the daily lives of pets in order to learn more about their needs and habits. Armed with this insight, the company designs smart products that aim to improve pets’ health and happiness while simplifying the pet care process for owners.

As a leading developer of high-quality pet doors since 1979, Ideal Pet Products shares the Eyenimal Num’Axes goal of creating groundbreaking products that enhance quality of life for pets and their owners.

The company’s pet doors maximize freedom for cats and dogs, while providing owners with the peace of mind that their four-legged family members are safe and comfortable. Ideal Pet Products offers an extensive selection of over 200 handcrafted pet doors and pet product replacement parts.

The company is also committed to conserving natural resources by ensuring that its pet doors are designed to save energy.

Women-owned brand expands mission to ‘Spread Goodness’ in face of global pandemic

All-natural body care brand Green Goo, under parent company Sierra Sage Herbs, is honored to support frontline workers, medical facilities, and local and national organizations making a difference in the fight against COVID-19 with instrumental product donations, including FDA-compliant hand sanitizer and first aid items.

Pivoting at the onset of the global pandemic to produce an affordable hand sanitizer for those in need, Green Goo has leveraged its manufacturing partnerships to produce a steady supply of the 63.5% alcohol gel, in a variety of packaging options, in order to provide an in-stock solution for consumers and organizations alike. With production capacity and volume steadier and more reliable, Green Goo has been able to realign focus back to its philosophical cornerstones: philanthropy and humanitarianism.

“Our company mission is ‘Spread Goodness,’ and that never stops, regardless of the obstacles thrown in our way,” Green Goo Co-Founder and CEO Jodi Scott said. “We recognized at the onset of the current situation that we not only needed to protect our families and our employees, but that we had an obligation to find a way to make a difference, no matter how big or small. We are privileged to be in a position to share these meaningful products with those in need. The organizations receiving our hand sanitizers — major government and educational health authorities, hospitals, first responders, and shelters for at-risk populations, for example – are doing the kind of work necessary to keep people safe and informed during these uncertain times. To play any part in that world is the reason we started this company in the first place.”

The following organizations have received donations of hand sanitizer and/or all-natural first aid products from Green Goo:

  • Alameda Health System – Oakland, Calif.
  • Bayshore Medical Center – Flanders, N.J.
  • Camp Ronald McDonald for Good Times – Los Angeles
  • Central Texas Food Bank – Austin, Texas
  • God’s Love We Deliver – New York
  • Harbor House of Central Florida – Orlando, Fla.
  • James A. Haley Veterans Hospital – Tampa, Fla.
  • McLeod Health Clarendon – Manning, S.C.
  • Navajo Nation with help from Orenda Tribe and The Lani Rhys Collective – Albuquerque, N.M.
  • Not 4gotten NY – Woodstock, N.Y.
  • OUT Boulder County – Boulder, Colo.
  • Providence Fire Department – Santee, S.C.
  • The Arc of Washington County – Hagerstown, Md.
  • The City of New York’s NYC Health Department – New York
  • UCLA Health – Los Angeles

The preceding list ranges from hospitals and medical personnel to food banks, other first responder groups, and entities providing educational and protective services. Green Goo is also setting aside a percentage of monthly hand sanitizer sales to select local and national organizations. The recipients of the financial contribution for the month of April were L.E.A.F (Lyons Emergency & Assistance Fund, Lyons) and Direct Relief. Boulder Community Health Foundation (Boulder) and Johns Hopkins Medicine have been selected to receive financial donations following the month of May.

Additionally, donated products have been sent to numerous individuals working in hospitals with affected patients, social workers, small-business owners, and others defining the American response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Green Goo will continue to produce compliant hand sanitizer options and search for additional opportunities to offer related support for as long as deemed necessary by U.S. health officials.
