I know it’s too late to be up cooking but…can’t sleep. What do you do when you can’t sleep? ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

I got done with work at 10, went for a walk with my dog, finished making potato salad and sit outside to eat it in my back yard that overlooks a field. Street lights on the other side of the field.

I usually wake up and read random internet articles till I fall asleep again and drop my phone on my face. Whatever that is that you are cooking sure looks tasty. Eggs, parm and what is the green stuff? Does the dish have a name? If not, I would call it Lori's midnight special!

It looks good and healthy. I read usually.

If I can't sleep it's usually because I have a problem to work out OR I've got some pain somewhere. So I either take two aspirin, and heat up a warm compress and go back to bed OR put on some coffee and try to work out my problem.

Yummy! I can't sleep either. Cause I am at work. lol

I would want to hang out with you and eat! That looks so good!

Looks delicious. Love the simple cooking ideas

I think of all the people in my life who have passed on. I talk to them in my head. Cooking is much healthier...

I play with clay and make my jewelry

Watching you cook right now then will go back to Facebook. Enjoy your dish you are making! 💕😊

Not cook. I'm a notoriously horrible cook.

I get up and wash dishes if there are any. Watch Monk. I didn't watch it years ago, but enjoying it so much now. Very good, funny show.

My favorite quiche! Looks delicious👍

Watch videos of people making quiche...

I read. But quiche is wonderful

That looks delicious 😋 Dr. Lori .. when I can’t sleep I watch you on YouTube .. YOU ROCK ✅

Watch you and others videos. I am working on learning glass paterns. ..probably not make quiche.

I had corn flakes 🙂

Keisha is so good💞. I have never tried or heard of Keish till I moved here to Minnesota. 😁

Lay in bed until I fall asleep. Getting up when you can't sleep can become a habit.

I listen to the Nothing Much Happens podcast. 😴😴😴

Looks delicious!

You Tube and try to stay away from Amazon.

I saw yesterday on tv that a bowl of oatmeal or 1/4c walnuts at night helped sleeping at night. So go eat some after you have a bubble bath or visa versa.

When I can’t sleep I watch Dr. Lori’s late night cooking program.

The poor people who sold the lamp. Sad for them.

Dr. Lori, what's the story on the swan planter on your table, I love it?

Can she find the finial?

I can't wait to see what you teach us tonight

Talk about an excited response!! I would have screamed or smiled and laughed or cried.. something !! haha.. buy a lamp for $15 and it's worth $50,000?

I have several pieces of Amber. One has a mosquito in it bought on a cruise

Great live tonight, that was a beautiful Tiffany lamp and such a great find👍

Beautiful lamp and great find 😍

How long do you keep on the bandage after a blood test? ... See MoreSee Less

How long do you keep on the bandage after a blood test?

Comment on Facebook

And here’s the bruise to boot!

Maybe an hour

A ... while ... I want everyone to know I had to have a procedure and I was brave .... LOL.

I take it off the second I even when I donate blood

For some reason I thought this was a funny question. I take mine off as soon as can. Probably when I get in my car.

Until I walk to my car, if I even let them put one on.

20 minutes, I’m a bleeder. They always have to dig around too so once the wrap comes off I’m a kaleidoscope of greens and purples.

Few minutes if not on blood thinners.

You mean to tell me that you can take them off...?

No more than 3 to 5 min. Sensitive to the adhesive.

15-30 minutes is how I roll.

As soon as I walk out of the Dr's office!

Depends on the person. Not everyone on the same meds or health condition. If on a blood thinner definitely longer. People do not all clot at the same time. I think they recommend 30min.

It seems the band-aid must have been over the technitions eyes when you were jabbed.

Stay well my brave friend!

My mother-in-law has teeny tiny veins also, bless her heart. It's like hey, what's par for this course huh? Get a hole in one already, lol.

I’m going for blood work on Tuesday and have always been told that I have good vein’s

I had blood drawn today too, left the bandage on for about 15 mins.

As soon as I get home I take it off.

5 minutes usually. Unless the vampire was on duty.

Depends how much vials they took out if you have a bruise put some witch hazel or rubbing alcohol. Hope it's just a regular CBC and nothing out of the ordinary.....

I'm allergic to most adhesives soooo pretty quick or I wind up with a red itchy reaction. I think about 15-30 min is what they tell you.

Until I get home

As soon as I get in my car😁

I have a reaction to the tape, it comes off as soon as I know I won't bleed to death. lol This, after it take 5 pokes to get ANY wants to keep flowing!!! ugh

Coffee or tea? ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

Where are these mugs?? Show some support

Coffee everyday and tea in the fall and winter

coffee try running a little vinegar and water through your machine

I find my morning coffee consistently tastes better out of the Dr. Lori mug!

Have you ever tried King Cole tea.. awesome bowl tea it's good with cream and sugar it's also good cold for iced.

Coffee, unless I'm sick.

It depends on the time of day and my mood. I love my coffee when I get up. I haven't had hot tea for a few weeks, but bring on the sun in Ontario, Canada, and I'll make some apple cinnamon sun tea.

Coffee in the morning, tea in the afternoon.

Organic Green Tea

I can’t believe I missed all this great fun by just binging for four month. Love coffee with few drops Bailey in am then tea with honey all day

Coffee all day

I like tea. , threw out my Keurig never liked it.


My Keurig has decided to ration my coffee intake as well! I'm seriously considering hitting the antique store for a percolator!

Inspiring me to have a tea I have an electric kettle. I like the water boiling Max. Two sugars cream yumness thanks for the inspiration Dr Lori

Coffee anytime but usually just mornings. Iced tea (cold brewed and sweet, please) in the afternoon (hot months), green and herbal teas (cold months). Throw the kuerig away. Get a plug in kettle.

Coffee with half & half and sugar

Neither 😞 , no caffeine for me !

Yea. Scottish breakfast tea with a splash of whole milk. I love the taste of coffee, but it bothers my stomach.


Coffee, two sugars and double cream please ..

Iced tea, lots of stevia and a wedge of lemon.

Coffee with cream!!

Are you asking what we prefer (coffee usually) or what’s in that cup? If it’s the latter, looks like that coffee maker needs repair.

Squash—what’s your favorite #summer #fruit or #vegetable? ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

A lot of votes for watermelon, squash.

Zucchini, can of tomatoes onions all fried together and topped with Parmesan cheese

Looks delicious and squash is one of my favorites. I love spinach quiche also.

We used to make sandwiches with this on crusty Italian bread with a few slices of salami. Takes me back!

Looks pretty good. My favorite is homegrown tomatoes. In Michigan they usually don't ripen until late July or August. My tomato plants are just starting to get flowers on them; so hope they bear well. 😋

Yellow squash sautéed in butter with onions, salt and pepper. Love it!

Summer squash , spinach, Swiss chard from the garden!

Asparagus from the garden!

Definitely zucchini and peaches 🍑!

Watermelon and sweet corn!

Zucchini, tomatoes, cucumbers, and my favorite fruit, plums

Danish: summer appels, cherrys and strawberries 😊 It is on the edge of temperature to grow them, so they grow slow and therefore it is SO strong in taste 🥳

Looks delicious!

Yum! Love it!❤️

zucchini, mushrooms and eggs.

Yummy! Tuna Steak salad late afternoon..

Grilled zucchini that has been marinated in Italian dressing!!!

butternut squash...yummy.

My Father used to make fried squash that was delicious. He tried to teach me how to make it but I could never get it right. Yellow squash dredged in egg and flour and fried in a cast iron pan. Same method for okra and it was never slimy.

Drooling... I could almost smell how delicious

Alaska grown carrots! They don’t come on the market until mid August , but their “sweet as candy” flavor is worth the wait!

Looks yummy - I made crock pot chicken cacciatore Saturday.

Yum I love squash and that looks delish!

Cherry tomatoes and cucumbers

Looks yummy

Quiz - Guess the most valuable Real Bargain Found! Which one was found in a Goodwill Bin? Watch my tips and get answers at ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

I like all of these pieces. They all have their good points, for sure.

I'll go with the glass, has real beauty, quality and expertly made, Murano. If the flower broach and earrings are gold and the pearls real, it wins hands down. Hard to make a decision from a photo without info on markings.

if those are real opals, then the brooch is the most expensive, if not it's a tie between the Murano bowl and Trifari earrings

Just watched the video 😁. Awesome information, so glad I found you💕. Love your YouTube channel

Animal found in the bin

Need more information

I love the cased glass. The pendant below is not my style, but I find it extremely interesting.

All are nice...I thought the dog was real at first lol

Necklace most valuable.

Murano glass

Gold jewelry

Thank you Dr. Lori i am learning so much from you.

the cat?


Brouch most valuable, cat from goodwill bins.


I love the red on your nails!

The pendant

Stuffed dog is adorable

Stuffed dog?

The broach?
