Newsworthy: Poor Girl Becomes An Official Mushroom Channel Contributor!

Pin It

Don’t you just love it when you get a great piece of news and it makes even the stormiest of days seem bright & sunny?  That was the case for me last Saturday, when the news that I’d scored my very first paid writing gig made the violent winter storm whipping around outside my window seem like total child’s play.

That’s right, folks!  I got a paid recipe writing gig!  For the next year, yours truly will be one of ten featured contributors to The Mushroom Channel, a fabulous website that covers anything & everything mushroom-related.  You all know how much I love, love, LOVE mushrooms, so to be able to develop a series of new mushroom recipes for fellow fungophiles is awesome enough; to know that I’ll also be getting paid for these recipes is beyond fabulous!  Talk about finally getting some street cred as a recipe writer!

I’m not alone in this fantastic project, and I want to give a shout out to the other awesome bloggers who will also be creating magnificent mushroom recipes throughout the year.  Here’s the complete list of the 2011 crew:

Some I’m quite familiar with, others I’ve just learned about, but we all have one thing in common: we love our funghi.

So stay tuned, fellow fungophiles!  My first official post will be out on April 4th, and it’s going to be a good one.  For now, feel free to rejoice along with me by enjoying a small handful of the many (and I mean many) mushroom recipes here on PGEW…

Enjoy! :)
