Michy's Second Season
Michelle Bernstein returns as host of WPBT-2's popular television show Check, Please! South Florida, and Season 2, which premieres Monday, March 9th, promises to contain almost as many new twists as the latest episodes of Lost.

Another addition will be a short segment in which Michelle demos a quick-fix recipe. Over the span of five episodes that just wrapped filming, Bernstein will whip up guacamole, ceviche, penne a la vodka, fish & chips, and sangría. Coincidentally, that's what I had for dinner last night.
The The format is otherwise the same, which means a panel composed of three
regular folk such as this season's Coral Gables school teacher, Palm

reviews. This is great, because you can get a wide breadth of opinions
