Shiitake, white button, portabella, are the most commonly used in our household.

Occasionally I'll get some enoki for a Japanese broth. Would love to try the morels but they are too expensive for a 'what if I like these' trial.

Me too...

I had some very fresh ****ake last summer but they weren't worth the money, IMO.
They were yellowish and very, very soft, as opposed to those sold in stores.

Like to keep mushrooms separate, using only one kind at a time. Mixing them as in some recipes not for me.

When I was single a hundred years ago, I'd come home from work, saute whites in butter, salt and eat the entire pkg as dinner.

I mostly buy the white buttons, because they are the cheapest, but sometimes I will buy portabellos, I love all mushrooms. If Hubby is cooking, he often adds in canned mushrooms, I am not so fond of those, but I am happy to have him cook

I'd love canned mushrooms, they aren't terrible.... if someone else was cooking

Baby bellas
White button (preferred for raw in salads or thai soups)
****ake
portobello (I order them when we go out quite often instead of a burger)
occasionally oyster mushrooms

Not overly fond of enoki - they look cute, but just haven't any flavor to me.

I've had dried porcini in the house and have used them. But when they were gone, I didn't replace.
