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!

Plum Crazzy Ice Cream

Kristin: Key Lime Pie Ice cream
OH. Oh it was so good. I think, however, that even though you can't get a waffle cone with the jr. size ice cream (I LOVE WAFFLE CONES with an almost sick addiction.), I feel like it would have been the better way to go- the key lime flavor was great, but i had just a smidgen too much so I didn't fully enjoy it all the way though. In any case, super yummy and well worth the detour ont he way home.

four golden forks out of five

Kate: Caribbean Carmel
OMG! Delicious. Had heard about this place and driven past it many times, but this was my first venture in. So worth the calories. Some great flavor options, like my usual favorite, Cake Batter, but I branched out today and went with the Caribbean Carmel. Toffee flavored ice cream with caramel swirls and tiny caramel filled chocolate candies. Wow! One lick and I felt I was on some exotic island somewhere (I wish!). Though this will have to be reserved for special occasions (save up those calories) it will be a great treat when I get it. Note, I did opt for the juniors' size cup , which was just enough to curb the ice cream craving without over doing it. Glad they had that option!

Incorrect spelling of the business name - it has two z's as in Plumcrazzy Ice Cream.
