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 Fun Foodie Announcement

Well, Foodie fans... this Foodie has an announcement to make which will hopefully help you see why the posting frequency has been down a bit lately...

We are expecting our first little Foodie! (Like the photo? This was our official Facebook announcement photo!).

We are due in August and are very excited to bring this little bundle into the world.

However, this little bundle has not been helping me maintain my Foodie lifestyle a whole lot. My first 5 or so weeks were pretty darn miserable. The thought of eating made me queasy. We are through that now (YAY!) and am focusing on super healthy meals. I promise, I will be posting some recipes soon that are loaded with nutrients.

But for now, I thought you might be interested in this Foodie's cravings and food aversions (because, let's face it, WEIRD stuff happens when you are pregnant!)

Taco Bell Bean Burritos
Sour Cream and Salsa (not necessarily together)
Honey Nut Cheerios
Veggie cream cheese on toast

Aversions (sadly, they are things that I spent a lot of time making over the holidays):
Pumpkin Whoopie Pies with Cream Cheese Frosting
Chicken Pot Pies

We will keep you posted as things progress and will get back to a semi-regular posting schedule soon!

Until then, Happy Eating!
