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 Birthday Weekend

That's right... this Foodie just celebrated a birthday (the age of which I will not reveal), and two of my sisters and my new brother-in-law came to Kalamazoo to help us celebrate. It wouldn't be a Foodie's birthday without lots of great eats, right? So, here are some photos from our VERY fun weekend! 

We hit up Taste of Kalamazoo for lunch! I enjoyed (thoroughly) the Grilled Chicken Wrap with Fire Roasted Salsa from Q-It-Up.

The sisters enjoying their dishes... Pork Sliders from Metro Diner and 411 Club (left) and Beef Rendang from Rasa Ria.

Seriously, this wrap was tasty!

Mr. Foodie and I.

My baby sisters (they are twins... can't you tell?)!

A quick stop at Bell's Brewery for drinks and snacks. No worries, I had an Izze Soda (Birch flavored and AWESOME).

A delectable dinner at Cafe Rustica downtown Kalamazoo. Mr. Foodie and I enjoyed an amazing meal here once before... check out the blog post here!

My dinner... Mushroom Farrotto. SO YUMMY!

Paul had the special. Paella with Saffron Rice. He was in heaven!

Sisters! After our wonderful dining experience.

Birthday cakeS from Bert's Bakery! Almond Poppy Seed (my favorite) on the left and Yellow with Strawberry filling right.

And, some amazing Erbelli's pizza for lunch  the next day. Had to take the sisters since mom and dad enjoyed it so much!

And, it wouldn't be a birthday without cashing in my Coldstone Creamery birthday rewards coupon. Cake Batter with sprinkles PLEASE!

I am jealous of all of those meals. Well - minus the mushroom one. But that Paella looks amazing.
