Cooking With Coke

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:

  • 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.)

    my special mealtime memories have always included coke. my childhood family was always coke drinkers and i am a diet coke drinker now.

  2. says

    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.

    Is there a way to enter your recipe there without facebook?
    I’m trying to and can’t seem to find a way.

  4. Gianna says

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

  5. Gianna says

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

  6. Wehaf says

    One tradition is making “angel wings” cookies every year for Christmas.

  7. Rosanne Morrison says

    We have taco night where everyone has their own special ingredient

  8. says

    my special memory would be the Christmas dinners spend with both families, mine and my former in-laws, they were really special

  9. Courtney says

    I didn;t share a recipe but there are a TON on there I would love to try. I want to make the Pork Loin with Coca-Cola BBQ Sauce this week.

    Our me time tradition is that I my kiddo have “their” night once a week where they help pick and make the meal we are having.

  10. says

    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.

    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.

  13. Lisa says

    I would like to create a cookbook someday with family recipes and family stories related to the recipes.

  14. Lisa says

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

  15. Jamie Brigham says

    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

  16. Charlie says

    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.

  17. says

    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!

  18. Debbie C says

    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.

  21. says

    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.

    We have so many memories and traditions. One is my gramma’s stew- my siblings, cousins and I used to fight over who liked it more.

  24. Denise S says

    A special mealtime memory was when my dad would make homemade french fries with us.

    we have a tradition of making “brunch” on the weekends. all the kids come in the kitchen, we don aprons and work together so we can eat around 11a.m. it’s great fun and it’s nice to be able to share my love of cooking with my wee ones!

  26. Emma Peel says

  27. Julie L says

    My sister and I have talked about putting together a family cookbook-from both paternal and maternal families

  28. Julie L says

    Here is a recipe that I like to drink while cooking: pour 2 oz bourbon over ice in a tall glass. Add 10 oz real Coca-Cola. Enjoy!
