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!

New Favorite (Shareable) Cookies

Clearly I suck at this right now. I have three drafts sitting here waiting to be written. And, they are all for new restaurants. And, are dying to be shared. But, life is crazy right now, and we will get there eventually.

In the meantime, I will make it my goal to give you something every week. Even if it is just re-posting some recipes that we are using at home and love.

So, here you go. Here are the Foodie Household's favorite cookies as of right now:

Giant Rainbow Cookies
Puffy Peanut Butter Cookies

Funny, they are based on the same recipe!

I have been making the Giant Rainbow cookies with regular, semi sweet chocolate chips. They are to die for! In fact, I had to stop, because there was a danger of much increased waistlines in the Foodie home. I will now reserve them for special occasions. The kicker in these is the melted butter. The cookies are so buttery and decadent. And, it is a super easy recipe.

The Puffy Peanut Butter cookies are amazing because it is the perfect amount of peanut butter. It is subtle. Not punch you in the face peanut butter. I love them!

So, make some cookies. And, share them. Share them because a) they are amazing and people will think you are the world's greatest baker, and b) no one needs to eat this whole recipe... they are a treat. Not an everyday thing. Unless you want to gain 25 pounds!
