  1. This recipe sounds really interesting! Thinking of giving it a try when my husband gets back from his business trip. I came to check out your site after you found mine through the blog hop. I love your concept! It really makes me want to make my sisters a part of my own blog. I'm now a GFC and Facebook follower.
  2. @Zitting Zoo- I have tried this recipe with Coke (and it's still so good), but I have heard that Diet Coke doesn't taste as good . . . something about the "diet" ingredients not producing the same yummy flavor (I think that the sugar plays a big role in why this is so good!). But, you never know! If you try it, let us know!
