Except for baking,recipes are quidelines ,use what you can get,can you get dried shitake in the chinese/asian section of your store ? if it is a bag of dried mushrooms in the chinese section it is probably shitake ,soak in warm water and discard the stem. they keep forever in a sealed mason jar.

Oh, dear, poor rusty! I can so sympathise. Take the porcinis, slice thin. Put in a skillet with a minimum amount of oil (butter, olive oil, or peanut depending on the type of recipe) , and cook slowly until a little over-cooked. Then put between a few layers of paper towels and press until as dry as possible.

No, serious foodies who have never had this problem, it won't be the same. But you shouldn't give up trying a new recipe, and this will help. Don't use the mushrooms raw, or even lightly sauteed, they'll be too watery.
