On a Stick Cookbook Giveaway (CLOSED)

(The winner of the giveaway is Yi Ren from Illinois.)

I have been a fan of Matt Bites for the longest time. I remember when I first started blogging, I would just gawk at Matt’s gorgeous food photography and secretly wished that one day I could be half as good as him. Fast forward a few years, Matt Armendariz is now a cookbook author; his first cookbook “On a Stick” is fun, casual, and absolutely perfect…

I sent an email to Matt and asked if he would be interested in a giveway. He said YES! and mailed me a signed copy of “On a Stick”—a cookbook with dozens of delightful recipes for party food, street-cart food, junk food, and more.

To enter to win, just leave a comment below. To maximize your odds of winning, you can leave a comment every day (one comment per day strictly enforced), plus the bonus entry below:
