I admit I have had things not go right for me. I also have had things happen that have gone right for me. When things go right, you can not help but be happy. The last few years I admit, I been trying to be more positive. I really do believe that by me trying to be more positive is when things really have started to go right for me.

I know from seeing it first hand how constantly being negative can affect your life. I have seen it from someone who is close to me plus when I was in a constant state of negativity, I had what you call “really bad luck.” Then one day, I just decided I needed to change my state of mind. Slowly but surely, I saw how things went from going wrong to going right.

Changing your mindset to be more positive is not easy, especially when you’re surrounded by negativity, it doesn’t happen overnight. Truth be told, I started doing the change to be more positive over 2 years ago, I am now just seeing better results from staying positive now. So why do that if takes a while to see benefits? In the long-term, it is well worth it. The negativity I needed so I can overcome and appreciate when I am positive and see the benefits of changing my mindset.

So why all this talk about changing the mindset and being positive? As you know I was recently featured In Parade Magazine Sunday Supplement in the papers across the United States for my Smoked Salmon and Dill Goat Cheese Grilled Cheese I am being featured again! This time it is on Today’s Food! It is part of the Today Show! The recipes, yes you read that right, recipes that are on Today’s Food: Slow Cooker Meatball Stew and This recipe as well!

Everything is finally coming together for me, my life and this blog. It feels great, yes it is hard work, but also because I changed my mindset. Like I always said, change is good. If you want something different, you have to be willing to change.

  • Hard Root Beer Sloppy Joes

I am a fan of Manwhich like many others, but I know I have always added extra onions and peppers to it when I made Sloppy Joes. Around New Years I had got a six-pack of this new drink called Not Your Father’s Root Beer. I am not a beer drinker, I will drink a hard cider.

Someone suggested to me to try this hard root beer. It was good, I have to admit that. I’m just not a beer drinker. If I have a drink it usually with wine.

I immediately started to think of what I can make with it. Root beer BBQ sauce sounded so yummy to me, that was one of my thoughts on what I could do with this hard root beer I have. Then a friend of mine was talking about making Sloppy Joes, her recipe did not have the usual Manwich in it.

It was simply a cola and BBQ sauce. Hmmm, what if I used her recipe and used the hard root beer instead? I knew that the BBQ sauce should be something that would compliment the hard root beer as well, so I thought the brown sugar version would do that nicely, and I would use a slow cooker to bring all together. It was superb!

    Loving this easy and oh so tasty recipe. Reminds me of the 1st time I tried root beer in my teens when a new American owned burger restaurant opened locally, it was so exciting and became a regular haunt!

    I love Not Your Father’s Root Beer. I have never thought about using it for cooking, though! Nice twist.
