Back to the Roots – Mushroom Kit Giveaway!

in 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 have to pick one? Only one? This is not easy. I have like, 865.
But for the sake of this great giveaway, and in the interest of time:
Shawshank Redemption.

I’d be so happy to win. I’ve considered buying these very same mushroom kits – I am a huge fan…

As for 90′s movies I am drawing a blank…I don’t generally rank my movies by date… but here goes: Pulp Fiction, What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, Kids, Falling Down.


Megan February 12, 2013 at 7:03 pm

Gah! Just one!? I can’t. Okay. Clueless on my perky days. 10 Things I Hate About You on my normal days.


Corisa February 12, 2013 at 8:03 pm

love Miss Congeniality!


Shady February 12, 2013 at 8:03 pm

The 90s were full of gems but I have to go with my all time, timeless favorite (of which I have no shame): Titanic


Sascha February 12, 2013 at 11:43 pm

Mr. Holland’s Opus


Jourdan February 13, 2013 at 6:31 am

Just making it in under the cutoff, from 1999, is my personal favorite: Office Space!!!


karen February 13, 2013 at 6:32 am

omg so many!!!!!! anything with drew barrymore haha.
matilda, clueless, aladdin, the wedding singer, don’t tell mom the sitter’s dead, home alone


La Gourmande February 13, 2013 at 6:50 am

TOO many good movies! I loved Clueless (for the clothes ie the fashion taste of a teenager in the 90′s…), Empire Records (for the soundtrack), Titanic (cried for days… oh to be young and silly again…), Shakespear in Love (simply because it was beautiful.)…

But my favorite was definitely Romeo & Juliet with C.Danes & L.DiCaprio. Everything about it was amazing! Watched it at least 100 times…


rocio February 13, 2013 at 7:52 am

Clueless! It will always be Clueless. Don’t get me wrong I love all of the movies you listed but Clueless just makes me want to put on some jammies, grab that dinner for one pasta, and hang out on my couch.


Adrian Tunaya February 13, 2013 at 11:17 am

I’m going to have to say it’s 3 Ninjas – Kick Back, when they go to Japan lol


Cate Keesling February 13, 2013 at 11:25 am

Reality Bites was my cultural, coming-of-age, touchstone. It was everything I wanted growing up to be about. Grunge forever!


Clare February 13, 2013 at 1:52 pm

Ten things I Hate about you!


Natalie February 13, 2013 at 2:26 pm

The Silence of the Lambs!!! So good.


Sruti February 13, 2013 at 4:48 pm

Ah, 90s! Before Sunrise it is.
Thank you for the cool mushroom kit!


Dianne February 13, 2013 at 5:43 pm

…A difficult choice. Forest Gump was so very good, as was Shawshank- but my fav has to be Legends of the Fall. Oh my, Brad Pitt was a dream in that one!
Would love an opportunity to grow mushrooms!!! But either way, your blog is a gift to me whenever I read it so keep posting! Happy Valentine’s.


Giselle February 13, 2013 at 6:17 pm

Empire Records! I still have to watch it whenever it’s on tv.


MaryAnn D February 13, 2013 at 9:31 pm

I’m just a kid at heart. I would have to pick Home Alone. I love watching it.


Gill Bland February 15, 2013 at 1:43 pm

King Ralph – great family movie. Still makes me giggle.
I wanted to say High Fidelity but it turns out that’s from 2000
