Have a recommendation? We'd LOVE to hear it!
Salutations Readers!

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!

Bilbo's (Stadium Drive)

Kristin: Health Nut Pizza, Breadsticks with Dill Dip
This is a pizza pub/ brewery that is themed all around the work of Tolkien. Now, the pizza and brews are great (you have to get the dill dip with your food), but really what you need to focus on is that this is a RESTAURANT that is themed after a bunch of BOOKS. Level of awesome? Pretty high.
Also, mad kudos to Bilbo's for offering a pizza what can indeed be termed healthy for you.

Kate: Health Nut Pizza, Breadsticks with Dill Dip
The atmosphere here is definitely pretty fun. Laid back. Cool. I could come up with lots of adjectives, I am sure. The food, I think we could have passed on the breadsticks and saved on some calories, but they were yummy. The dip was great, but, again, probably a caloric nightmare. The pizza was delicious. And, as Kristin mentioned, good for you. It felt good eating it. Loaded with veggies, great wheat crust. Great choice!
Bilbo's has their own micro brews too. I enjoyed a raspberry infused beer. Great flavor. And, a really nice addition to the pizza.
