♥️ Brussels sprouts! Tonight I made shrimp Alfredo with tricolor rotelli pasta, which turned out great! Removed the tails from the shrimp after defrosting them, seasoned them with a little garlic, salt, parsley, a little red pepper flakes, cooked them in a skillet in some butter, added Alfredo sauce thickened w/pasta water and the pasta... Yum!

Browned chicken breasts, over broccoli, topped with browned sliced mushrooms and garlic, cream of mushroom soup mixed with chicken broth and spicy mustard in a casserole dish topped with shredded cheddar cheese and baked for thirty minutes at 375.

Looks delicious 😋Love them.

OMG!!! hahahaha My husband is calling me a hoarder. I explained that all his stuff he refuses to part with are the Definition of Hoarding. I sell mine. He has settled down since I sold 2 items in less than a week for a total of $1,050. P.S. I paid less than $30 for all of it. It was Dr. Lori Appraised so add $13.26 for appraisal from a $199 half hour. (yes she did 30 in 30, I was prepared, and she's awesome!) so $1,006.74 gross profit.

Trolls are always trolling please ignore these idiots, you are loved! Just continue on doing your thing!❤️

We love you! Don't listen to those folks.

Dr. Lori: Please ignore the crazy trouble makers and nay sayers... We who love seeing and hearing from you value all the information and knowledge you impart to your viewers. I truly enjoy hearing what you have to say about "finds" and non-finds! Can't wait to hear your next segment on Pittsburgh Today Live (or on Facebook)! Hoping to submit some items soon! 🙋‍♀️❤️⭐️👏xo

Hey Dr. Lori! I am sad you are having to deal with junk (verbal that is)! Focus on the great stuff, there is so much you do! Hugs!

Anyone in the public eye will suffer from this. So sorry and hang in there!💕

I am sorry people are so rude and full of negativity opinions shame on those that feel this way and disrespect you in this way . I find you to be quite honest and helpful and  full of wonderful  knowledge and information and Funny also !!!  Thank you for being you .

So sad. You are one of the most honest personI know. You know your stuff and ignore those people that run their mouth.

I watched your YouTube rant and think all your rants are valid. Sometimes on posts I just read the comments to see all the 'armchair' professionals or just outright bullies come out of the woodwork. I don't get to watch you as often as I would like, but when I have I'm very impressed by your knowledge.

Anytime we work in the public eye. We have to deal with trolls, hypocrites, tro uble makers, haters, who are miserable and dont want to see anyone do well. You are a lot of fun on PTL, and it's obvious you are good at what you do !

Love the rants, good to get it off your chest. So funny hearing you describe my family telling me I have too much stuff! This afternoon I had signed up for classes 3 and 4, hearing me described here I think it's a good thing I did sign up. Classes 1 and 2 were very helpful, and your calls have helped me value over 100 items, now on to the platforms, shipping, and scammers classes to move this stuff out! 😀

Dr. Lori, complainers will always complain. Doubters will be doubters. Jealous troublemakers will stay jealous until they find a new target. Attention seekers will behave improperly to be the main focus of a group. As my mom always used to say, “brush their negativity off yourself off and keep going.” Cream always rises to the top. Honest and respectful feedback that comes from a pure place and is meant to be helpful from those who have earned your respect is valuable. Unwanted advice is always just criticism. We will keep recommending you. There are thousands of us who respect and value you and who are appreciative of your knowledge, gracious generosity and expertise. The rest can pound sand. Lol 😂

Well they are probably leaving someone else alone for a while. So sorry.

It’s not what they call you , It’s what you anwser to. You are Doctor Lori , I love and respect your knowledge

Jealous people love to tear others down! You do a great job! Keep it up!

Dr. Lori, we love love love love you❤️ haters are always going to hate. It is usually because they are just jealous…! I cannot believe how much I know about valuables because of you. Please don’t ever stop what you doing we all appreciate you. Forget that small portion of disgusting people that are just trying to make your life miserable. Please. You will never Lose your credibility with thousands of people. You have changed our lives forever in a beautiful way❤️. God bless you Dr. Lori. I cannot even find words to tell you how grateful I am for you.❤️❤️❤️ and there are thousands of us that feel that way probably even millions❤️

We love you Dr Lori!

Humans can be cruel and ignorant and jealous. Unfortunenlt that is part of humanity. When people treat us badly they show us who they really are. They have exposed themselves. We can then block them from our lives. I know it hurts and you are angry. You are a good person, you love animals, and you are sharing your gift of knowledge with everyone. I was always taught that the best revenge is HAPPINESS 😊 If you let them get you down they win. I know this from experience. BE STRONG - BE HAPPY 💐

I can't speak for anyone but myself, but you are a wealth of knowledge that wants and is willing to share it with all of us. Please just ignore the haters. They are just jealous of your success. I appreciate you sharing your knowledge with everyone. I have been able to find some really good bargins and have resold them for what you say they are worth. Never once have I had trouble getting the amount you said.

You’re loved and respected for sharing your knowledge! Let it go, and keep doing what you do and love! ❤️

You are extremely well educated, talented and personable. I sincerely doubt the naysayers have the education and experience you have. Some people are afraid of strong, intelligent, confident women. They can take a hike. Keep up the phenomenal work, Dr. Lori! ❤️

Dr Lori. Just want to thank you again for all you do for us. I appreciate it and continue to learn. Please keep doing all the great things you do. Don't let these people bring you down. You are loved and appreciated by far more people. ❤️

Fortunately I haven’t heard anything or any lies. You know you are better than that and anyone who doubts it, we’ll we know what they can do. ❤️

Why would anybody say lies about Dr. Lori? Your one of my favorite people out there!! 👍🙏💜

I just want to say I'm sorry for the crazy that can go on. I try to do as much research myself as I can and when I watch your You Tube Videos I do learn things I did not know and appreciate the knowledge you have shared. I hate that when I go on live I have to keep putting my real name on there for some reason it puts my email letters which is not bogus but I guess what it kicks in so I always try to reiterate that I am a person who always wants to learn. I feel we can all learn from each other and no time for haters anywhere. I'm sorry that there are some who do attack, and I hope I never come across that way. I've attended several appraisal classes and you tube classes and still learn and have to go back to the web page but that's how I learn. I hope that those that are trying to copy you or your business knock it off. Here's hoping the nay sayers will just go back from whence they came ......... take care looking forward to next class. Have had several doc appointments with the hubby and hoped I could have made the one today but alas was not able to make the time but will look forward t the next class. You are enough they need to stop.
