{Cookbook Giveaway} Easy Chinese Recipes: Family Favorites From Dim Sum to Kung Pao


With the Chinese New Year beginning Monday, January 23rd, the timing of this giveaway couldn't be better!

I love Chinese food and always find it frustrating when I try to recreate the dishes in my home and they just don't have that authentic taste. So when Bee from Rasa Malaysia approached me to review her new cookbook, Easy Chinese Recipes: Family Favorites From Dim Sum to Kung Pao, I was very excited!


Her dishes in the book are beautifully photographed and really simplify Chinese cuisine. Everything from Tasty Lettuce Wraps, Kung Pao Chicken, Beef with Broccoli, to Pot Stickers and more! If you love Chinese Food as much as I do, you NEED this book!

In celebration of the Year of the Dragon, I am giving this cookbook away to TWO lucky winners!! (US Only)

For a chance to win, simply leave a comment here with a way for me to contact you if you win (email address, twitter, etc). The winners will be chosen by random.org.

For a second chance to win, subscribe to Skinny Bits so you never miss a giveaway and leave a second comment here saying you did so. Giveaway ends Saturday, January 28th. Good Luck!!

Giveaway Closed! Congrats to Wendy Newcomer and Keilah Nettles, you have been contacted. Happy cooking! Comments are now closed!

No fear, if you don't get chosen and still want this book, it's available at Amazon!
