Grilling up some Yummy Summer Fun with Coca-Cola :)
UNLESS it is accompanied by a scrumptious, mouth-watering recipe for a Yummy grillin' creation made with a bottle of Coca-Cola®!
Every time I visit my favorite store, I buy a few glass bottles of Coca-Cola®. Yes, you CAN still purchase Coca-Cola® in glass bottles. Is there really any other way to enjoy this great product?
Well, yes, there is...but in my opinion, an ice cold Coca-Cola® is best in a glass bottle.
I would LOVE to share some wonderful recipes with you, featuring Coca-Cola®.
My family and I just LOVE these and I hope you will, too!
This is a BBQ Staple in our home.
I LOVE to soak boneless, skinless chicken breasts in this awesome sauce and grill 'em up :)

And for dessert...
This chocolate cake recipe has been made in my kitchen for a couple years now.

I love making these recipes and seeing my family gobble them up!
I love hearing my girls ask for Coca-Cola® in the glass bottles...they're just like their Momma :)
Created in Atlanta, Georgia, by Dr. John S. Pemberton, Coca-Cola was first offered as a fountain beverage by mixing Coca-Cola syrup with carbonated water. Coca-Cola was introduced in 1886, patented in 1887, registered as a trademark in 1893 and by 1895 it was being sold in every state and territory in the United States. In 1899, The Coca-Cola Company began franchised bottling operations in the United States.
