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!

A Thanksgiving Photo Essay

Thanksgiving was upon us, and Paul and I were on our own this year, so we decided to make some of favorites, stay in our pajamas all day, watch football, and be thankful for each other. So, I made many pies, far more than the two of us could eat (but, it's alright, I took them to my co-workers. They were meant for sharing!), we cleared off the dining room table (finally!), had the Mumford and Sons station on LastFM playing, and had ourselves a lovely meal!

Here is what we ate:
Side note: Paul got me a new camera for my Chrisaversary (our anniversary is December 11th so we are combining gifts) present. So, stay tuned for some better, not blurry, photos! YAY!

YUM! I love that you had multiple desserts. A woman after my own heart. :) I'll be posting (sadly without photos) about our Thanksgiving feast soon!

My grandmother was the pie maker. So, I wanted to make some pies in her honor. She was the pecan pie master, but Paul said that mine was the best he had ever had!

Pecan is my favorite. Apple is Paul's. And, you can't have Thanksgiving without Pumpkin. I was sad that it didn't turn out better.
