Cooking With Coke

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on April 27, 2011

The kitchen is the place in the home where some of our best memories are made. When families spend time cooking together and enjoying meals together, they create memories that summon all five senses and stick to the bones. Is Coca-Cola a part of that experience for you?

If so, you’ll be interested to know that Coca-Cola has launched Cooking with Coke – a site dedicated to Coke-loving moms (like me) and their families. The new site provides a place to share recipes, family stories and mealtime traditions.

Coca-Cola partnered with a couple of celebrity chefs who’ve already started sharing their memories, but you can share yours, too. You can even build a personalized recipe book and share tips on how to get the whole family together.

Check out and Win!

Visit Cooking with Coke to submit your own recipe and share your story. By doing this you will enter to win a Chef Essentials Prize Pack.

But, there’s more!

My friends at the Coca-Cola Company would like to gift a From Dates to Diapers’ reader with an Ingrid Hoffmann 12qt Tamale Pot and Steamer by T-fal® and a Coca-Cola Oven Mit. There are several ways to earn entries:

  • Leave me a comment below with the name of the recipe that you shared on Cooking with Coke. Your recipe does not have to include Coca-Cola. Or any soda, for that matter.
  • If you would like to create a cookbook – great! Let me know in the comments below and that will earn you an entry, as well!
  • I’d love to hear about a special mealtime memory or tradition that you have.
  • Share the link to this giveaway on Facebook or Twitter and leave me a comment saying you did so. (Only once per platform, please.)

Giveaway will close at 9pm PT on May 21st. Winner will be chosen at random and notified by email.

Now, go and make more memories!

The prize was provided by The Coca-Cola Company. The Coca-Cola Company is not a sponsor, administrator or connected in any other way with this giveaway. T-fal® had zero involvement with this contest.

My mealtime memories all include sitting at the table with my family and laughing. We actually made fun of my mom a lot, which was not so nice, but we were a very sarcastic and quick bunch.

I would love to create a cookbook. It would be something wonderful to give to all of my children.


Gianna May 2, 2011 at 3:33 am

We make homemade fried pizza pockets together as a family Christmas eve. It’s something i’ve been doing since I was kid.


Kate May 5, 2011 at 2:06 pm

We make cakes shaped like animals for kids’ birthdays! So fun and cute!

Hmm, a treasured mealtime tradition in my family growing up was cooking chinese food on Christmas. Now, the tradition is cooking “special” foods and giving them silly names. I.e. I make pancakes and top them with cherry pie filling and cool whip (on VERY special, rare occasions that my kids LOVE), and call them “mommy cakes”

Our family has always loved Mexican food and it is the meal of choice when we get together. We decided one day to get together and make tamales as a group…so far I got the Masa Harina and was not able to get the corn husks locally, but I’m looking. Tamales and margaritas…yup, doesn’t get any better! I would love to create a cook book with all my favorite Mexican dishes to pass on to my kids. This is a great contest, thanks for the chance to win it.


Ladytink_534 May 12, 2011 at 12:11 pm

One of my favorite cakes ever is a chocolate coca-cola cake. The recipe is up on the coke website. I never make it with the marshmallows and I use regular milk instead of buttermilk. It’s always a crowd pleaser.


ann May 12, 2011 at 12:15 pm

You can use coca cola in cakes and when you make meat on the grill

My special mealtime tradition is having holiday meals together with family and cooking the family’s favorite foods.


Jamie Brigham May 14, 2011 at 9:54 pm

Cheesy Lasagna minus ricotta is the name of my recipe


Jamie Brigham May 14, 2011 at 9:55 pm

Our current tradition is eating dinner after our infant son is in bed so we can actually eat without him sitting on our laps grabbing everything. I cannot wait for the moment when we can sit together as a family and talk about our day

Seeing this pot reminds me of watching my grandmother and all the women in my family make tamales at Christmas. I would like to try them with this pot.

This may sound silly, but I have four kids and we start with the youngest and go up when fixing the kids plates! The oldest knows he’s last and they all get out of whack if something changes with this order!

One mealtime memory I have is of my Mom, who was a pretty good cook most of the time, really failed. My Mom would not grill steaks. She cooked them in the oven until they were dry and tough. I never knew that steaks were edible until one of my first dates took me to a steakhouse. The memory of Mom’s inedible steaks is still funny but when I mentioned it to here all these years later, she doesn’t laugh. Hmmm.

I left a chicken and stovetop leftovers cassarole recipe. Its one of our favorites.


Kim H. May 20, 2011 at 9:35 pm

I didn’t share a recipe, I’m not much of a recipe maker. I do love their black bean burger. I didn’t realize how easy it would be to make. No more pre-made ones!

Our family does love Coke for in between meals, but not for dinners. We drink water or milk at most meals and I’ve never cooked with Coke. I like this coca-cola recipe place though and will be visiting it.

thanks so much for the giveaway! I love finding new places to go.
