        you can’t click on it. Is there another place to get the mushroom recipes?

        • Jahlee Arakaki

          The Headers in the links are switched–before you get to the actual page, click on the “5 single…” and you’ll get the “5 hearty mushroom….” Once you’re in the page, you can’t click on the titles–so, remember, click before you get to the page–they’ve just been switched (easy to do, I guess)…
