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!

Foodies at Home: The new breakfast of champions

Ok... so maybe that is a bit far. But, seriously, I have had a new breakfast revelation that I had to share.

So, my normal breakfast trend these days is the following:
Whole wheat English muffin
An Omega-3 enriched egg (we eat Eggland's best)
And, a slice of cheese (in various varieties, but always Sargento slices)

A breakfast sandwich if you will. Plus a glass of calcium fortified orange juice.

It is satisfying, has some good nutrients, covers several food groups, and has an appropriate amount of calories for where I am these days in my pregnancy. Plus, it tastes really good!

BUT... hold on a minute, there is more...

We were planning a Taco Night for dinner this week. Our meal plan was a little derailed, and while we are still planning Taco Night later this week, we had an avocado that was reaching the point of no return. So, yesterday morning, I decided to spread a quarter of the avocado onto the English muffin. And, add to that that this week I picked up Pepper Jack cheese. And, we have breakfast utopia!

That's right... an egg, pepper jack, avocado breakfast sandwich! Sounds so simple, right? Why didn't I think of this before?

I wish I could eat avocado for breakfast every day. I don't think I can or will, but it has been an amazing treat these last few days and one that I wanted to share with you.

Try it. You will like it. I promise!
