Spiked! Fall Beers Recipe Challenge {Sign-Ups Are Open!}

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 Spiced Pumpkin Ale Bread  and Beer Cheese Risotto with Bacon.  Or Julie's Taco Soup 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 two months there will be a new Spiked! Recipe Challenge with a new featured boozy beverage.  September's featured ingredient is....  Fall Beers!  Julie and I are not shy about the fact that we are both beer snobs and we love the fall season for all the harvest ales and pumpkin beers that start popping up on the shelves.

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!

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 fall beers.  Your beer in your recipe MUST be a fall or harvest beer for your submission to be considered for judging. Your recipe can be anything BUT a drink recipe.  You must cook or bake with the Spiked! ingredient.  

You must link up your Fall Beer recipe when the linky goes live on September 20, 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 there are a few other perks...

A Measuring Cup social media promotion package with Frugal Foodie Mama for 30 days (starting October 1st)- plus a spotlight post on Frugal Foodie Mama featuring the winner, their winning recipe, and their blog!

$10 Starbuck gift card from This Gal Cooks.
