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!

Food Dance

Kristin: The New Step (Pancakes, Eggs, Sausages)
I'll keep this short. Food Dance. Go there. Order anything off the breakfast menu that come with the CHICKEN APPLE SAUSAGES. Just do it. They are soooooo good. And as much as I tried so very hard to order something just different so that I could actually have relevant commentary on our dining experience... I couldn't do it. Seriously people, chicken apple sausages. Like a foodie's crack.
We went to food dance yet again to show off the wonderful city of Kalamazoo's offerings for Kate's foodie friend, Brandelyn (did I spell that right Kate?). I think we showed her a good time.
five golden forks out of five!

Kate: Two farm fresh eggs with sausage, potatoes, and an herb and cheese scone (not to mention Mimosas)
Now, I should mention that Brandlyn (so close, Kristin) was my cuisine buddy in my former city. Once a week, we would dine together and de-stress from the week. Our experiences were not nearly as formal (funny, aren't I?) and there was no "list". In fact, other than a few times, we ate at the same 5-7 restaurants the whole time. Not that we weren't adventurous, its just that we found things that we REALLY liked (Oh, Vino Vino...how I miss you!). So, when I heard that she was coming to Kalamazoo for an afternoon, I knew I needed to WOW her with a culinary experience. Where else would you turn for that type of experience than Food Dance?
I knew that I needed to try to aforementioned chicken and apple sausages, so I sought a menu item that included a breakfast meat. And, when Brandlyn ordered and I heard "herb and cheese scone" I KNEW I needed to try one. That lead me to this dish. Nothing fancy, but amazing flavors. I just can't say enough how impressed I am with everything that I have had from this place. And, this was no exception.
The Mimosas deserve special mention. So, it was a Sunday afternoon. Right? Brandlyn was here, so, slightly special occasion. Naturally, that leads us to mimosas. They have three different flavors, regular orange, mango and pomegranate. I gave the mango a try, and it was yummy, but round two was a good, old fashioned mimosa, and it was delish! If you ever have an excuse to order one, DO IT!
