Your so great dr Lori

Wow I guessed the value of the Majolica piece $1500 and was right, just a guess. It was stunning. The lady who challenged your age evaluation of the pottery had nothing to back her up other than 'she knows pottery" that is laughable when she is challenging someone of your expertise. Of the three examples i loved the ginger jar with the foo dog on top. I did not catch the value? I would love to find a jar like that.

I would if I new myself. lol

I wish I knew, all I now it's a China thing. Sorry

Hi Dr lori I did a video chat with you last month and I sold one of the items you gave me an appraisal on. Yay me! Thank you so much

Dr. Lori I love you, and this right here took it to another level. ❤️ You are amazing and I’m glad that you didn’t go down to the mess that she wanted to have.

I'll look for the other video you refer to as well. 😁

I have no idea how

Is this one you appraised?

Thanks found it. Tik Tok didn't have the entire video.. Here is the entire video of what really happened. Watch it here.

Cranberry nut muffins
Are you gluten free? Share your #baking tip

almond flour makes great chocolate cookies. no grittiness.

We do Keto, which includes gluten free. We enjoy sugar free (uses erythritol as sweetener) baked goods made with usually almond flour, coconut flour, or a combo. There’s an excellent Keto Baking book by Carolyn Ketcham we use all the time, and Carrie Brown has a very good ice cream book. Learning keto cooking and baking has been an adventure! One grows up and gets competent in “mainstream” cookery, then adopting Keto, needs to learn a new group of ingredients for good texture, thickening, sweetening. My arthritis has stopped giving me pain, seasonal allergies are greatly abbreviated, and colds have been nonexistent going on 4 years. The “side effect” of more muscle and less body fat has been good. Better oxygenation is another one. I’m an artist, and I appreciate Lori’s advice on selecting art pieces! Best wishes !

Wow nice

They sound fantastic!

Roasted carrots and asparagus, chicken tenders but I am plotting to bake a lemon cream pound cake.

Your muffins look delicious!

I make Biscotti Cookies, Almonds, Pistachios and Orange Zest. They are not gluten free!!

Looks delicious

I love gluten Full muffins but these do look yummy. I wouldn’t turn it down. 🤣

It does not sound good but it looks was it? Great show as always, hope you are having a great day.🙂

Not baking but if you are looking for the BEST gf pasta, order Le Veneziane. We have tried every other type and this one tastes like real pasta. (It’s made in Italy and they may know a thing or two about pasta.). Cheapest to order it from Vitacost.

Want to but don't know how to. Right now I'm on a carnivore diet, which basically I Only eat meat, cook Everything in Real butter,, drink whatever I want & any & All meats only including eggs, I'm diabetic and having issues w sugar levels & stomach, been doing it just for alittle over a month & half, lost 8lbs & No more stomach& sugar levels Great. I'm Not trying to get Anyone to do this, Everyone is different, so I'm having pork ribs, No barbecue sauce, put in crackpot w 2 cans of Golden Mushroom soup w beef Bone broth, with fresh mushrooms sauted in butter & garlic & spices, meat just melts in your mouth. It's supposed to snow most of the week here in Colorado on & off, I do eat only green vegetables accassionally. I should try gluten-free. Hope everyone is having warmer weather.

So so difficult to bake gluten free....heck..🤓 everything tastes like cardboard!!

Muffins look great!! Yum 😋Been making chaffles in my new little chaffle makers...easy, fast. One egg, 2Tbs almond flour, and mozzarella cheese shreds (lots of chaffle recipes online). Using as bread, waffles, etc based on ingredients. Low carb, no white sugars. Monkfruit, Stevia sweeteners work best for me. Great results so far!

You just had to post one of my weaknesses didn't you? Good thing it's too cold and dark to go to the store.🤣🤣🤣 They look delicious! If you weren't 3,000 miles away I would come over and clean up your kitchen for a muffin. 😁

Pillsbury Best Gluten Free Flour is so great.. can make some yummy crunchy chicken fried steak or chicken strips. And also great for baking!

I don't even know what gluten is but I bet it's the stuff that makes everything taste good!! 😜

Bobs Red Mill Gluten free cornbread mix is fantastic.

I made Banana Bread last night

Hi Dr Lori, I have created cookie, cake and Biscotti recipes. Both my daughters can’t have gluten or dairy. I never tell anyone that there dessert is gluten free till after. It’s SO FUN to see there mouths drop!! Let me know what recipes you need.

I am Gluten Free ! My best budd owns Brain's Best Bakery! Honestly the best Gluten Free products you will ever have!! She is amazing all her products are made with only the best ingredents. Brian's Best Gluten Free, LLC please check her out on facebook and if you are ever ever in Buffalo the Buns are on me!!! lol

I have been very lucky finding treasures in the junk jewelry jars at thrift stores! My first find was a sparkling vintage diamond ring. The band was so worn it broke, must have been very loved. I’ve also gotten white jade beaded necklace and a very vintage gold locket, it has the gold jewelers mark inside!
