Old New Jewelry

I love any kind of jewelry but along the way I have collected some pieces that have become favorites of mine because of the special occasions and people that have given them to me. The only problem is, they tarnished in a short amount of time.

Ever wondered how to get tarnished pieces of silver looking like new?  I recently found a new trick suggested online.

To get your silver back and sparkly clean simply rub the jewelry with dry baking soda using your fingers and watch as the tarnish disappear! I have to admit I became giddy during this process. It only takes a matter of seconds and the jewelry starts looking shiny. After you have throughly rubbed it with the baking soda just rinse with water and dry with a towel.

I cannot wait to wear my old pieces turned new!

Weird Delicious Dip

Last fall Josh's parents came to visit us and his mom made this new dip that to be honest just looked weird! It's one of those things that I would not try unless prodded...well they warned us it was odd looking but after one taste it would leave you wanting more and more...and just a little more. It's so delicious and I started craving this weird dip this week! It's a little sweet but we like it a little saltier so I'm going to give you my modified version of the recipe that Josh's mom gave me.

Here's the recipe, I dare you to try it...

1 can of black beans rinsed
1 bunch of green onion chopped  (my sister has an awesome trick for making more of your green onion on her blog.)
1/2 cup of cider vinegar
1/2 cup of light olive oil
1 1/2 tbsp of  sugar (original says 1/4 cup but thats way too sweet for our salty palette)
Garlic powder, salt, pepper to taste (of course we always add salt like we would to guacamole)

We mix all the ingredients above and then let it sit for usually a day in fridge to let the ingredient flavors unite.
When you are ready to eat add  1 container of feta cheese.
