It is funny the ups and downs in life. When things start falling apart, it seems everything starts falling apart. When things start going right, the world is your oyster and you hold the pearl.

I have had my fair share of falling apart for a few years actually. From work and being in a negative work environment to toxic friends, trust me that was dark years for me it did last a very long time.

Slowly I changed my outlook and decided to try and be positive inside a cloud of negativity. Trust me that was not easy. Somehow, I managed to get through it.

Then I saw the ups, out the blue in February I got asked by work if I could open a new lab. That would mean I would be leaving the toxic work environment I was in like I explained in:

After that work change, suddenly I started waking up and positivity came into my life. Why? Maybe because I was out of a huge force of negativity?

It was like that negativity was blinding me to other things in my life. I realized over the last few months friends I had really didn’t have my best interest at heart. I realized I collected friends and never get rid of them, even if they were truly not my friend. So I started cutting them out of my life. The sad part is they didn’t even notice I had cut them out of my life.

What I am noticing as I am getting rid the negativity that surrounds me, my self-confidence is going up.  I feel so much better about myself. It is like I am reinventing my life.

I admit sometimes I get ideas for recipes that I get obsessed over to create. This Margarita Glazed Popcorn is one those ideas. I was determined to make this idea work. It took many tries for me to get it where I wanted.

I first mentioned about margarita popcorn in my:

Mushroom and Onion Smothered Cube Steak

Mushroom and Onion Smothered Cube Steak is easy to make and is perfect for a weekend dinner. Tender cube steak smothered with a gravy, mushrooms, and onions on top of mashed potatoes.

I talked about a weekend of recipe failures. That was one the first take on this Margarita Glazed Boozy Popcorn. I wanted the tequila to stay in the popcorn somehow. It was frustrating, I knew there had to be a way.

If you make a glaze with the tequila in it, it would burn off as you cooked the glaze. Not what I wanted. I put the thought up on Facebook and had other food bloggers comment with ideas, like a spray bottle and incorporate the tequila into a salt maybe. All very good ideas, but wasn’t working for me.

Just when I was about to give up, the idea on how to make it work came to me. The inspiration was there inside me. I just had to look into my roots. What I mean by that was candle making.

Yes, at one time in my life I made very heavily scented candles. The directions to making a candle never made sense to me as to when you add the scent. So I reinvented a different way that worked.

With candle making, they say to add scent as the wax melts. To me, the scent would burn off that was why in some candles as it burned the scent didn’t seem to last. So I would melt the wax, take off the heat, allow to cool a little, then mix in the scent. This way I encapsulated that scent within the wax.

So I did that with this margarita glaze. I encapsulated the tequila within the glaze. I took what was a negative situation which was figuring out how to develop this recipe and turned it into a positive, this Margarita Glazed Boozy Popcorn, simply by changing my outlook on how to create it.

    Popcorn is my favorite snack, and this sounds WONDERFUL. I totally get what you mean about negativity. I am a glass half full type of person, but it is so easy for me to get dragged down by other people’s negativity. Sometimes we have to move past those people in order to see the best in our own lives.

    I think this would be an awesome snack. I am curious to know how the tequila works with the crunchy popcorn and keeping it crunchy. It sounds delicious though.
