Cooking with Coke – Ingrid Hoffmann T-fal Stainless Pressure Cooker Giveaway!#WIN

policy

Some of my fondest childhood memories are of helping my Mom in the kitchen.  Especially on Fridays when the long week was finally over and I would come home from school and walk into our house that smelled like a pizzeria!  She would be making mouthwatering fresh sauce for homemade pizza.   My Mom is full Italian, so  back then she wouldn’t cut any corners during cooking and most everything she made was from scratch!  I would get to help put the toppings on the pizza before she placed it into the oven and I loved to snitch handfuls of cheese when she wasn’t looking.  Once the pizza was done baking my mom, dad, sister, and I would sit down in front of the television together and eat it while watching “The Dukes of Hazzard.”  However, the pizza wouldn’t taste the same unless it was paired with a tall ice cold glass of Coca Cola!  The combination was out of this world delicious!

For as long as I can remember, Coca-Cola has been a part of the experience.  From summer BBQ’s, family reunions, birthday parties, to holidays we  have  enjoyed a Coke with our meals and celebrations.  It seems only fitting that Coca Cola would launch “Cooking with Coke” (www.cookingwithcoke.com) a site dedicated to Coke-loving moms and families.  The new site provides a place to share family stories, recipes, and favorite  mealtime traditions.  The website is a fun way to get inspired about cooking and bring fun back into the kitchen the way it should be.  You can even create your very own cookbook compiled with delicious recipes you have tucked away in your kitchen and share it with your friends and family by using the Cookbook Builder tool located at “Cooking with Coke.”  Or download and print  premade cookbooks filled with recipes by celebrity chefs Ingrid Hoffman and G. Garvin!

One of the recipes Ingrid shares is Coca Cola Rice!  It sounds fantastic and I plan on trying to make it myself this week with my daughter!   According to Ingrid,  Coca Cola is a popular ingredient in many Colombian recipes and the rice has become a tradition on the Colombian Coast.  Watch below as she makes the yummy dish!

Coke and Meals Sweepstakes

Share your family traditions and original recipe for the chance to win a  Chef Essentials Pack, including an autographed G. Garvin book, a set of 15 G. Garvin premium spices, a set of Ingrid Hoffmann Cookware, an Ingrid Hoffman paring knife set and a knife sharpener, an Ingrid Hoffmann kitchen gadget set, a Coca Cola grilling apron, and 2 Coca Cola koozies.  The approximately retail value of the prize is $599!  The recipe doesn’t have to include Coke as an ingredient, but it must be original.  Please make sure to read the complete rules for submission guidelines.  You will be asked to log into your Facebook account first to be able to access the entry form.  Have your recipe ready so you can submit it in the next step.  Good luck!

Coca Cola Vanilla Float

Coca Cola Vanilla Float

My favorite way to enjoy Coke is straight out of a glass bottle!  However, for a special treat during the scorching summer months a great way to cool down is with a delicious Coca Cola Vanilla Float.   I’m not much of a Root Beer fan and this is a fantastic alternative to the old classic.  It’s a simple recipe, but wow is it ever yummy! All you need is a tall glass, Coca Cola, and Vanilla Ice Cream!

    1. My favorite Coca Cola Memory is the BBQ Coca Cola Chicken Mrs. Olson (she had many daughters and she loved singing in the church choir as a high soprano) would always make and bring for church socials. That chicken went fast, too fast because many times I wouldn’t get even a wing, but as a kid you were usually at the end of the line. The men always seemed to head up the lines to the buffet tables.
    Finally one day my mom talked Mrs. Olson into giving her the recipe. I just wish I had it. I know she used a full can of Coca Cola for each chicken she cooked in the BBQ Coca Cola sauce. I think she browned the chicken in a frying pan first, then put it in a baking dish with the sauce, covered the pan with Aluminion Foil and I think cooked it at 350 degrees (or maybe higher) for about a little over an hour. I wish I had the recipe to share. That’s my favorite Coca Cola Memory.

    Went straight to the Dessert section, and scrolled down till I saw one of my favorite words, “Brownies.” I can’t believe how easy they are! And obviously the Diet Coke you use to make them cancels out the calories in the brownies. A match made in heaven.

    I guess my favorite Coke memory is gathering up soda bottles to return to the store for cash, a task my brothers and I did willingly, not for altruist reasons but for the cash. This wasn’t an Earth Day inspired recycling effort, this was in the ooolllldddd days when the curvaceous bottles were extra thick and the top had to be pried off with a bottle opener. We returned them to the store so they could be sent back and refilled. Those were the days. I still remember the feel of the extra heavy, thick bottles.

    My favorite Coca Cola memoy was when I was about 10 years old and my mother let me go to the conner store alone for the first time to get my own coke. I was a warm spring day and I can still smell the lilac scent in the air with I think about this. helenkeeler@comcast.net

    My father grew up an athlete in a small Louisiana town where the owner of the town’s Coca-Cola Bottling Co. was a great supporter of kid’s sports and became personal mentor to many of the town’s kids, including my dad. Years later every single family Christmas card we sent featured a photo of us kids all holding Coco-Cola bottles (of course, Dad’s old mentor was on the Christmas card list.) And, living in the deep south–we don’t use the words “soda” or “pop”–we say Coke.

    I have another great Coke memory–my grandmother woke very early every morning and her morning drink was a 6-oz bottle of coke (anyone remember those?)
