Dr. Lori, I so enjoy your segments about “Real Bargains” but, come to think of it, I love all your videos❣️❣️ Thank you!

Best appraiser ever!

I love all your videos. There great.

I haven't seen the video yet. Guess is the silverware if it's sterling.

Great video. Trying to commit some of these names and brands into my memory.

The silverware appears to be real silver. I'd say that's the 3k

Guessing the Tiffany magnifying glass 😉

I'd say silverware, since I dont know anything about jewelry. And my process of

Christofle set - I love dr Lori - for me the best art historian in the world!

Kelly Johnston this is the appraiser I like to watch. 🙂

I say magnifying glass.

Tiffanys spy glass

Silverware if it’s sterling

Love this!❤️

Su R The a best Teacher in The World Dr. Lori !!!!!


Silverware $3000. Magnifying glass $900

I used to love when my mother made Nestles Toll House Cookies! I loved them straight out of the oven😊Most people didn’t like walnuts in them… I 🥰 them

More like...what am I eating!!🍪🍪

I LOVE chocolate chip cookies! But, I've been eating Ketogenic for almost 7 yrs and make my cookies Keto. There are hundreds of sugar free (flour free) cookie and cake recipes.

I used to do a lot of baking but I have slowed down a bit at dang near 84 years old (December 22). I do enjoy baking and hope to make my “famous Onion Bread” soon.

Today it was Christmas puddings today. Yesterday it was Christmas cakes.

If I bake, I eat, so that's a hard NO

I baked 3 loaves of banana bread and made soup! All I’ve done is cook and wash dishes! 🤣

I made my cookies yesterday, Oatmeal Raisin along with Baked Ziti! Today I’m making Pork Roast w/ Sauerkraut!

Not baking anything. Not really a baker though, except for putting donut shop bought apple fritters in the microwave. 😁😂 I'm starting a 2 month weight loss challenge in the morning here on FB. Hopefully I can get down under 2@@+ xoxoxo

Perfection I’d say

Spritz cookies with cream cheese in the recipe.

I made a batch the other day. I need yours mine were trash. I'm making pocket prayer quilts and getting ready for my husband and cat to arrive for the winter from PA. Happy Holidays!

Is that today?! Guess I need to start on some cookies too. Those look great Dr Lori.

Pinenipple upside downs sounded good! Soooooo much butter was involved!

Hi Dr Lori... I love cookies and those look delicious! I may have the best gluten free peanut butter chocolate chip cookies you prob have ever tried. I give this recipe away all the time. Dr. Lori I hope you try them. I make them huge. 4 inches or larger. 1 cup Peanut butter 3/4 cup sugar 1 large egg 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips Preheat oven 350 degrees Drop dough 2 in. apart on parchment paper. Bake 12 to 16 min.s Let cool 15 mins. Or else they will break apart easily right out of the oven. These are amazing you could prob substitute sugar for a vegan alternative. I haven't tried that tho. 🙂 for National cookie day!

It was my husbands birthday and I baked him a keto pumpkin cheese cake

My bread machine has a cake setting. I've made 3 cakes, white bread, 3 batches of butter cookies and made 3 batches of dumplings for homemade turkey soup. I want to make lefse for the first time next

I love Ricotta cheese cookies. But I'm no baker

Do you deliver?😊

Oat meal banana cookies with sugar free chocolate chips. They sound awful, but they are my go to cookies now. Really good too.

That looks delicious 😋 I am trying my hand with a traditional British Swiss Roll with holly on top.

Do you do mail order?? 🤪

Those look scrumpciliocious (a made up word of course) today for dessert we are having brownies ........ or maybe Poppy Seed Cake haven't decided but those cookies look very tempting .......... thanks for the inspiration.

Looks yummy🍪 Enjoy your Sunday😀

Looks delicious 😋I did the cookies for years. Spritz with chocolate dipped, tea time tasty, Mexican wedding cookies, real shortbread cookies and chocolate chips. My son took over the cookies making about 5 years ago. It is nice to pass on tradition and see what they do.

That looks so delicious ! I love healthy food. The only problem is that I am so thin and it's hard to gain weight ...not always easy eating tons of calories to not look like a skeleton..... Most say to me " oh that must be fantastic, to eat what you want and don't gain an ounce" Oh no it isn't, sometimes I feel sick because I have to stuff myself...and no. I am not sick...just my metabolism...we all deal with something 😊 But that looks Soooo good!

Excellent. I’m also working super hard…down 9lbs in four weeks. Easy does it.

Yes I do!😊Looks delicious!

That looks great. Trying to eat healthy but not great at it. Love to watch your videos while I walk for 30 minutes each day. You keep me going on the treadmill and I learn lots of new things. Keep it up

Yummy & I despise the treadmill too!

I know it, Dr. Lori. I started working from home again a few weeks ago, and am working hard to integrate yoga and a short walk into my daily routine, as well as eating reasonably. It's not easy, but it will be worth it for both of us. I want to be around a long time to annoy my friends!!

Just a suggestion, I'm 60 years old and I love going for walks. And if you have a dog, then you have an excuse to go outside and go for a walk. Dog or not, it's so much more rewarding to look at the sky and nature versus going on a treadmill, which I agree. I can't stand that either.

I think I would like that Dr Lori. Did you season it? Do you think it would be good with salsa?

That looks healthy and delicious!

Well Lori that would be good just a little ground beef. I'm a SEMI VEGETARIAN LOL. I like the Wv Pepper beef soup looks like this with rice peppers tomatoes etc. This looks delicious. But I think I'm so use to meat it's hard not to have flavors a beef bouillon cube maybe. Lke I'm 95% vegetarian I try. I usually make a nice breakfast for the weekend . Homemade sausage gravy are chipped gravy scrambled eggs homemade biscuits n some sliced block cheese.

That looks so good 👍👍👍 did you listen to music while on the treadmill?

Yummmmm, especially the broc!!

Healthy 💪

I wld totally devour that ❤️

Gypsy, everyone can do some kind of gentle yoga. There's something called Chair Yoga. Find another doctor who is better informed. They are not trained in keeping you well, but only to treat what symptoms occur.

That looks fabulous. I have fruit cake in the oven. I've been soaking the fruit in rum for a week. What's your version? Thanks for showing great recipes again...

Cauliflower is so stinky but delicious.

Interesting question from last night’s class. What’s your answer to this question? ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

You are so good Dr Lori …. I too was taken by the question … I love your Teddy he is the best ….. hugs to all

Your classes are SO MUCH FUN !! Sorry I missed it but there's next month!

My son’s Bible and my grandparents’ bibles. My son’s self portrait drawing. We were in an f 4 tornado a few years ago and I had three minutes to get dogs and kids and myself into two safe spaces when we learned it had turned towards us on a 70 mile path and that’s what I grabbed before sheltering into a pantry when it hit. ( we have no basement) the tornado killed over twenty people and I will never forget the sound of it. Of all the valuable items in my home, my most precious treasures are those items.

Dr Lori, I need your help, more than you know.

If I could, it would be a pair of earrings. It would be for sentimental value as they belonged to my granddaughter. 😢

First and foremost would be my dog. Good question I have to think on it I don't know what else I would grab if I had time

I would get my two cats out, had a fire before and couldn't get the cat out. It was heartbreaking

Besides my family and pets, it would be my scrapbooks with all my kids photos over the years

Dogs. The cat is my husbands

My wedding ring. 30 year anniversary was on November 28th. Need to get my ring resized. 30 years and 4 kids...gained a few pounds. Lol

Nothing. Honest to G-d people have no idea how fast fire spreads. YOU. DO. NOT. HAVE. TIME. Make sure every living breathing being gets out safely then wave a sad farewell to the rest. This is kind of a bugaboo of mine. Not only does fire spread faster than many realize it also produces deadly fumes. There is no object worth the risk you take by not getting out right away.

Besides the obvious family and pets it would be my teddybear too. 1981 Holly Hobbie Teddybear. I've had it since I was born.

My kids, my husband and our dog. Then I would pray that God spares the other things I would want.

I have my piggie bank from when I was a child.

Photos 🙂

Awww, he's beautiful! Probably my handwritten letter to me from my mom

My dog.

My husband/family members

Awwww!! 🤗❤️

My 16 cats

Fake, I love the smell of a real tree, but to see them dumped next to the garbage cans after the holidays makes me sad, such a waste of something so beautiful & precious!

Home sick today. Nothing better than binge watching your videos! Christmas 🎄? Prefer real. Have fake. Not sure which we will put up this year.

Fake small I have a cat now lol 🤣

Love the scent from a real tree. Bug I have a fake pencil tree. And I just bought a vintage fiber optic tree.

Still a real tree, but have to say that as I age I think I am going to look into a fake one. Less mess since I leave it up so long!

I'm in Florida now and the trees are too expensive and I'd be watering all the time! But I have 6 artificial ones.

Fake to put it up early...safer this way.🎄🎄

Fake because the real is to one is to expensive.

As we are in our 80s now a fake tree it is🎄

Not real (fake) my husband allergic to them he gets real sick?

Tabletop tree. Wire with pearl beads

Fake tree

Artificial. The cats love it 😆

Artificial tree that we got in 1980.

We have a microfiber tree.

Real but should have fake-allergies!

We have a real tree

Three small fake one. But very 😍

Aluminum tree ✨

Fake this year

Small tabletop

None so far.


We have an aluminum tree with a color wheel!

Fake tree, real dog!
