Back to the Roots – Mushroom Kit Giveaway!


Happy Valentine’s Day Week! Happy Lunar New Year! Happy happy week…

Today I’m giving away something I’ve loved for a long, long time: a mushroom kit from Back to the Roots. That’s right, my fwiendz, today I’m giving you mushrooms. Oyster mushrooms, actually.

This kit is kind of amazing. All you do is water the goods (inside the box) and in about 10 days you have 1 1/2 pounds of fresh, beautiful oyster mushrooms. SO COOL!

If I had 1 1/2 pounds of oysters, I’d make this pasta dish with brown butter and fried sage, or this white mushroom lasagna…or maybe this mushroom risotto.

To enter, simply leave a comment below answering the following question:

1. What’s your favorite 90’s movie? Here are a few of my favorites: Walking and Talking, Reality Bites, Before Sunrise/Before Sunset, Dazed and Confused, Beauty and the Beast…you get the idea! Annnnd go…

Giveaway ends Tuesday (2/13) at midnight. I’ll choose a winner and post the person’s name, along with their favorite 90’s movie. Good luck!



{Fine print: Back to the Roots provided one mushroom kit for me to give away to one of you lovely people. No compensation was exchanged. That’s all!}


Update!: Loryn is our winner. Her favorite 90s movies: “Pump up the Volume! and Heathers! and Singles” I mean…very, very good choices. Singles is one of my all-time favorites, too. Thanks for playing, everyone!

    I actually received one of these mushroom kits for Christmas (such a cool gift idea!) and the only thing that happened was tiny bugs crawling out of the box after about two weeks or so. No mushrooms at all! And I followed the directions exactly. I want to try again though. Any tips for next time?
