November Spiked! Recipe Challenge Sign-Ups!

It is no big secret that myself and my good foodie blogger friend, Julie from This Gal Cooks  love to cook and bake with alcohol.   Don't believe me?  Then make sure to check out my recipes for Butternut Squash Cheddar Ale Soup and Beer Cheese Risotto with Bacon.  Or Julie's Super Simple Crockpot Roast Beef and Pumpkin Ale Cupcakes.  

Julie & I have teamed up to bring you all a recipe challenge with a twist (of lime or lemon, if you please ;) )- your recipe must feature the alcoholic beverage being spotlighted that month! Every other month there will be a new Spiked! Recipe Challenge with a new featured boozy beverage.  

November's featured ingredient is....  Spiced Rum!

I have to tell you all that my husband is pretty pumped about this month's Spiked! ingredient.  Those who have been following me may have already seen me mention a number times about my husband's love for a good ole Captain & Coke. I have already ran by him a couple of my recipe ideas for the challenge, and he is eagerly waiting to be able to step in and taste test. ;)

So, let's get to the rules...

Julie and I would like for you to follow us via one of our many social media outlets.  Your choice-Bloglovin, RSS feed, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Google+... you get the idea.  Plus, following us both will keep you in the loop about upcoming dates for the challenges, announcements of winners, and so on.

You need to sign up by adding a link to your blog's home page in the linky at the end of this post.  Be sure to include your email address when adding your link- this is how we will email you all updates and reminders for the contest! Sign-ups will end on November 8, 2013.

You must have the Spiked! button in your recipe post to be considered as an entrant.  It would also be SUPER awesome if you included the button on your sidebar, but it is not a requirement to win. ;)

(Just copy and paste it!)

The recipe you submit MUST BE YOUR OWN.  You can be inspired by another's recipe (and please include a link back somewhere in your post to that original recipe), but you must make that recipe your own in some way.

You may only submit ONE RECIPE.

The recipe must feature the beverage of choice.  This month's Spiked! ingredient is spiced rum.  Your recipe can be anything BUT a drink recipe.  You must cook or bake with the Spiked! ingredient.  

You must link up your Spiced Rum recipe when the linky goes live on November 15, 2013 to be considered for judging.  The linky will remain open for just two days.  No entries will be accepted past that date.

All recipes will be judged by myself and Julie from This Gal Cooks.  
The winner will be announced one week after the entry linky has closed and will be emailed as well as announced on each of our blogs.  

The winner of the Spiked! Challenge will receive bragging rights of course, but they will also win a copy of The Beeroness's The Craft Beer Cookbook...
(Winner will have a choice between the paperback or Kindle version via Amazon.)

Spread the word!  You must tweet, Facebook, pin, Google+, Instagram about the Spiked! Spiced Rum Recipe Challenge with a link to this post included in order to qualify to win.  (There's a Pin It button above & social media share buttons at the end of this post to make it easy! :) )

If you missed September's Spiked! Fall Beers Recipe Challenge winner, make sure you check out Lisa's from Cooking With Curls Apple Ale Doughnuts...

Julie & I look forward to seeing all the yummy recipes everyone creates using spiced rum! :)
