Michele Mitchell

Michele here!  That's my family there including my husband, Greg, and my daughter, Kate.

We live in Springfield where I've been since 1993.  Originally I'm from St. Louis, and that's where most of my family still lives.  Luckily it's not too far away, so we can get together fairly often.

You can hear me Monday - Friday 6-10am on 104.5 WMFB in Springfield.  John & I have the distinction of being Springfield's longest running morning show. 

This isn't my only blog.  I also have a Makeup Blog where I (and sometimes you) review cosmetics.  Make sure you check it out and leave your comments.

Some of my favorites
- I like this site for news
www.people.com - Great place for celebrity news
www.sephora.com - Makeup galore!
www.imdb.com - Can't think of the name of that actor?  This site will have it.
www.qvc.com - Yes, I like to shop QVC.  They have some really cool stuff, I swear.
www.youtube.com - This is where I catch up on things I missed on TV.

iPhone Apps
I love my iPhone.  It's the greatest phone I've ever owned by far (and I've owned a lot of them).  In fact, I admit I probably love my iPhone too much.  I'm always finding new apps, and here are some of the latest I love...
Angry Birds- I'm not much into video games, but this thing is addictive.
Vougue Knitting - I'm a knitter, and this app is great.  You can keep track of unlimited projects and inventory all your needles so you never buy what you don't need.
IMDB - When you just can't think of the actress that starred in that one film, this will keep you from going crazy.
360 - This app allows you to easily take 360 degree panoramic photos and upload them.

My Creation

Sunday I was in the mood to cook, so I decided to create my own recipe.  It actually turned out pretty darn good, and it's pretty healthy too.  I thought I'd share the recipe.  Enjoy!

1 lb. ground turkey

2 T EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)

1 jar spaghetti sauce (any kind you like, I used Prego Three Cheese)

1 small can diced tomatoes

1 medium zucchini, diced

1 medium yellow squash, diced

1 tablespoon garlic, minced

2 small cans mushrooms

2 cups shredded cheese (I used Colby/Monterey Jack)

1 lb. box tri-colored rotini



Italian seasoning



Boil rotini to al dente.

Brown turkey, adding Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper to taste.


In a large pan, heat 2 T of EVOO over medium heat.  Add garlic, zucchini, yellow squash, mushrooms.  Cook until tender.  Add spaghetti sauce, diced tomatoes and cooked ground turkey.  Season to taste.  Cover and bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. 

Heat oven to 350.  Spray non-stick cooking spray in 9x13 pan.  Ladle 1/3 of the sauce in bottom of pan.  Layer half of rotni followed by ½ of cheese.  Ladle another 1/3 of the sauce, other half of rotni, followed by rest of sauce.  Put other half of cheese on top.  Place in oven for 20 minutes.

Finish under the broiler if you’d like the cheese to brown.
