Giveaway: Full Circle Home

Posted by on Sunday Apr 22nd, 2012

This giveaway is now closed. 

Because I’ve embraced Earth Day in a big way this year–green pizza and a round up of how foodies stay green in the kitchen–I figured I’d round it all out with a giveaway, thanks to our friends over at Full Circle Home.

Anything that makes cleaning a little more pleasant sounds good in my book. (Cleaning’s not my favorite job.) Full Circle uses only sustainable and renewable resources–scrub brushes made with sleek bamboo and sponges from cellulose–so today’s giveaway is an awesome way to pick up on my Earth Day obsession in a clean, green way.

 When we first “met” Kelsey, The Naptime Chef online (I think it was through Food52, where she ruled the dessert contests for a while), we immediately connected over the parallel between cooking for quarter-lifers (our niche) and cooking with a little kid around (hers).

When we first actually met her, over pretzel croissants and hot chocolate at City Bakery, we figured out exactly why that parallel was so telling. See, new moms are pressed for time, because they’re juggling an extra aspect of life, aka a child. Quarter-life cooks are pressed for time because we’re juggling a developing career, roommates, …

Last year, we started our own little BGSK Thanksgiving tradition by giving back to you, and the community, with some tasty treats from Baking For Good.
