Kalamazoo has good food.
Great food, in fact. We have made it our mission to check out all the local eateries one at a time - and more for our own poor memories than any other reason, we'll be chronicling our adventures in food here. And some places float our boats way more than others, which is why we have developed the very scientific five golden forks rating scale. Ok. It is not scientific at all. It is actually quite unscientific. But, it is something. And now, you can search all of our reviews by the forks rating. YAY!
But, wait! There's more!
Kalamazoo Foodies no longer just eat at restaurants then review them. There are recipes posted, some easy, some less easy, all delicious. There are, or will be, book reviews, the new Foodie Movie Review-y which will focus on movies about food or ones that have a lot of beautiful food in them. There are other food musings, and hopefully soon contests and so much more. But, Foodie Friends, it is all about food. Because we love it!
And, we want to hear from you!
We want to hear your comments on our recipes and reviews. We want to know where you love to eat. And, we are looking for GUEST bloggers to broaden our horizons a bit. And, if you haven't found us on Facebook, you should do that too. Like our page for other fun Foodies stuff like photos, polls, and more.
SO KALAMAZOO PATRONS - where do YOU love to eat? Because we'd love to check it out and share our thoughts here. Give us a comment below, and quickly! Our tummies are grumbling in anticipation.
A Note from the Foodies about our typical fair:
So, you may notice as you read our blog that we often order the same thing wherever we go. OK, maybe not quite, but we do often order similar things. Kristin has her caprese salads and mushroom dishes. Kate has her baked goat cheese and things with tofu. Well, readers, we wanted to let you know that this is absolutely intentional. A) We love those things, so why not order what you love? And, B) It is a lot easier to compare apples to apples than it is to compare apples to comquats. So, we like to order similar things to have a good sense of how to compare them. Just wanted to let you in on that little secret. Bon appetit!

|Earth Fare's Food Philosophy.|
|Clear labeling helps to identify local (within 100-mile radius) products.|
- All products at the meat counter are antibiotic free.
- The cheese counter has a large selection, including many local cheese, and all are made from "grass-fed milks."
- The majority of the breads are baked in-store and made from scratch. Plus, they have fresh baguettes at an everyday low price of $.98!
- The deli counter features a large variety of house-made salads and other options. There is a salad bar ($7.99/lb) and a hot-foods bar (also $7.99/lb). There are also a multitude of grab-and-go options including sushi. These items can be enjoyed in the store's Café area (which includes free wifi) or taken to go. You can also grab a cup of coffee from the coffee bar.
- Finally there is a fresh juice and smoothie bar. You can build your own or go with one of their blends. All are made fresh to order. "Happy hour" is from 2-5 pm and gets you a $1 discount on your juice and smoothie purchase.

We haven't forgotten about you. And, I promise we are still eating great food. We just don't have as much time to tell you about it.
If you aren't already a Foodies Fan on Facebook, we do post more frequently there.
And, the Foodie Family is now pinning away on Pinterest. We have lots of food related boards and more! We would love to see you there as well!
Until next time... happy eating!

Hungry for some Kalamazoo Foodies? Sorry we have been so quiet lately. The last few months have brought us a lot including: a first birthday party, a new job, croup, sleepless nights, and busy times at work. So, we have not only not been posting, but we haven't been exploring a whole lot in the food area.We hope to get back to posting a little more soon. And, wanted you to know we are thinking about you.
In the meantime, if you haven't popped over to Facebook and "liked" our page, I recommend you do so. We post a little more frequently on Facebook... fun photos, links to new places we want to try, etc. Hopefully, we will see you there soon.
Signing off for now. Yummy treats coming your way before too long!

Foodie friends! We know it's been awhile. We've been busy chasing around this little one year old! But we promise we will be back in the swing of things soon.
In the meantime, here is a pic of Little Foodie exploring the kitchen.
See you soon.
