love thursday: the wandering chopsticks edition

Last week when I put out the call for heart photos for Love Thursday, one of my favorite food bloggers, Wandering Chopsticks, who specializes in Vietnamese and Chinese cuisine, responded in a big way. Below is a collage of some of the best Wandering Chopsticks heart photos with links to the corresponding posts (including recipes!) at the bottom.

Does this make up for no What’s Cooking Wednesday this week or what?! Please *do* check out the recipes and the rest of this fabulous blog!

  1. Michelle,

    Thanks for all the link love! I can’t believe how lovely that mosaic looks. I’ve been noticing a lot more hearts all over the place because of your Love Thursday posts. Perhaps I’ll eventually have enough for another round. 😉
