    My favorite mushroom? Too hard to pick, I love them all. While I love the more unusual, gourmet types, I admit to a huge fondness for plain old ordinary white button mushrooms.

    I’ve been reading about mushroom growing kits and would love to have a chance to try this one out.

    I love all types of mushrooms, but my favorite is fresh shitake mushrooms. Those are delicious in pasta, soups, wontons, stirfrys, etc. :) The dried ones are good to, but the fresh ones are so easy to cook and so yummy!
