Are you ready for the latest edition of the Spiked Recipe Challenge? This month we bring you…FALL BEERS!

Spiked Recipe Challenge: Fall Beers. Brought to you by This Gal Cooks and Frugal Foodie Mama It is no big secret that myself and my good foodie blogger friend, Carrie from Frugal Foodie Mama  love to cook and bake with alcohol.  Here are a few of our favorite booze infused recipes!

Carrie & I have teamed up to bring you all a recipe challenge with a twist – 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. Carrie 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.
