Make Memories and Meals with Coca-Cola – With Giveaway! – Frugal Novice

Make Memories and Meals with Coca-Cola – With Giveaway!

I love cooking, as I’m sure you know if you’ve read my blog for any length of time. I’m always excited to find new recipes for my family to try, and Brian and I have a lot of fun working together in the kitchen. Now that the boys are getting a little older, we have started letting them help us cook and hope cooking will be something we enjoy as a family for years to come.

For us, and for many families, 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. For as long as most of us can remember, Coca-Cola has been a part of the experience. From birthday dinners to summer BBQ’s, millions of families have enjoyed a Coke with their meals and celebrations (or even mixed into the ingredients themselves!).

Recognizing the brand has become a special part of people’s lives, Coca-Cola has launched Cooking with Coke – a site dedicated to Coke-loving moms and families. The new site provides a place to share recipes, family stories and mealtime traditions. Visitors to the site can build a personalized recipe book from any they like and share tips on how to get the whole family together.

This site is a lot of fun! Since I’m a Texan and all, I was immediately drawn to a recipe for Coca-Cola BBQ sauce submitted by Chef G. Garvin – I am definitely adding this to my menu plan for next week! They have it paired with a pork loin, which is something I’ve never tried cooking before, so that’ll be fun to try too.

The Cooking With Coke site also allows readers to contribute recipes of all kinds. I saw one for Spinach and Artichoke Dip that looks really good, and pretty much every dessert recipe on the site looks like something I’d want to try. I think I’m going to enter a few recipes of my own and get the chance to win a Chef Essentials Prize Pack!

Another great feature of the site is the ability to compile recipes into a digital cookbook. It’s a really easy-to-use setup that lets you get organized and share favorite recipes with friends and family via Facebook, Twitter, or e-mail. You can even print your cookbook if you want a hard copy.

One lucky reader will win a 12qt pot and steamer with lid by T-Fal ($59 value), courtesy of Coca-Cola. This contest is open to all US residents. Entries will be accepted until the end of the day (midnight CST) Thursday, May 26.
