Here is something interesting--http://www.therisenrealm.com/uses_of_cocacola.html
I did a search coca cola roast and came up with this, plus a number of other web sites.

Curiosity killed the cat, but satisfaction brought him back.--unknown, at least to me

Here's a neat one. I got this today in the mail after I bought a vintage Gold Medal Flour recipe box full of old hand-written recipes and magazine clippings of recipes. I found evidence of the magazine clippings dating back as far as 1951.

Anyway, this one was handwritten on a piece of paper, folded up and stuffed in the box. I can't wait to try it, along with a lot of the other recipes in the box. Lots of sweets in there. :D


7-Up Salad

2 boxes lemon Jell-O
2 cups boiling water
2 cups 7-Up
1 cup miniature marshmallows
1 cup crushed pineapple, drained (reserve 2 oz. pineapple juice)


2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 cup whipping cream
cream cheese (frozen)
chopped nuts

Mix Jell-O and boiling water. Let cool and add 7-Up. Fold in marshmallows and pineapple. Refrigerate until set.

Combine butter, flour, egg, sugar and pineapple juice. Cook until mixture thickens. Let set until cold. Fold in whipping cream (use Dream Whip). Spread the cold topping over the jello. Grate cream cheese over this and sprinkle with nuts.

Cream cheese can be easily grated if frozen first.

It's good for the soul when there's not a soul in sight.

I love cooking with beer and wine, sometimes I even put it in the food
Think of it as one layer of flavor and build on it.
try something like a can of lemon lime with chicken
cola with beefsome red pop (has to be faygo dere) adds nice color and a sweet cotton candy like taste then just add whatever else u normally would....just try to balance it out a bit ..... it's not rocket surgery or just save it for your next function
if it's in 2 liter bottles I highly recomend one of thos pumpy whoo haas...they works great!
I like the idea of the coke chicken phinz
but I also like erics idea.... anyone have a recipe for jungle juice?
Hi Bubba Sybo, I don't you or recognize your name even, hum, that's odd huh.
Anyway, I have a 6 pack of blueberry soda that none of us will drink after having one. What can I do with it regarding using it to douse on what kind of meat? Anything? Wonder if I can do that = parts ketchup and "that" on the chicken that is mentioned aforehand? what is faygo dere? sorry, but I have no idea and what's chicken phinz?

Another interesting application of soda is quickbreads. You can omit baking powder in most qjickbread recipes (pancakes, muffins, spice or bannana nut bread, etc.). Some interesting uses would be to use orange soda to make orange muffins, pineapple soda could be used along with chunks of cooked pineapple in pancakes or muffins, etc.

Also, lemon/lime soda's work wonderfully with chicken dishes. Orange works well with pork. Great barbecue sauce can be had from root beer used as the base.

Use your imagination. Orange chicken is easy when you use orange soda in place of orange juice and orange peel.

Think of sodas as the flavor of the citrus rinds, but sweetened. Their flavors come from the oils found in the rind rather than from the fruit juice.
