You can use toothpaste and rub on the tarnished silver.

You can boil 1 liter water, 1 tbsp. baking soda and 1 piece of tinfoil. Place the item into the water for about 10 seconds and then take it out with tongs. Rinse as needed.

We loved these cookies.  These cookies will harden by the next day, so roll the dough thicker if you want a softer cookie.


1 cup rice flour

1/2 cup tapioca

1 cup cornstarch

1 tsp. baking powder

2.5 tsp. xanthan gum

1 tsp. salt

1 cup sugar

1 cub butter

1 egg

2 tsp. vanilla

1/4 cup powdered sugar* save for kneading into the dough at the end


Mix the rice flour, tapioca, cornstarch, baking powder, xanthan gum,  and salt. In the mixer, cream the white sugar and butter. Beat in 1 egg and 2 tsp. vanilla.  Then add in the dry ingredients. Remove the dough from the mixer and knead in 1/4 cup powdered sugar or enough to make the dough workable. Roll the dough out to about 1/8 inch thick (I like it thicker).  Use cookie cutters to cut out shapes and place onto a baking pan. Bake at 350 for about 9 minutes. I also like to sprinkle sugar on top before baking.
