Happy New Year!  I took the past 10 days off and spent time with my family in Arizona for Christmas and New Years. We had a wonderful visit full of family fun, huge dinners, hiking, and playing oodles of card games. We soaked up as much sunshine and warm weather as possible. Then we returned home to a foot of snow, blowing wind and the temperature in the single digits! Brrrrrr…..

Last year was a great year for Beyond the Chicken Coop and here are the top recipes from 2016.

      I’m missing the sunshine and warmth already….I guess that just means more time for baking.

    You DID have a great year at BTCC!!! So glad you got some rest and relax over the holidays. I know working in the school system particularly, you need rest and a break away. These recipes all look wonderful Kathy. I love your bow tie cookies, so pretty! Cheers to a wonderful year ahead in 2017!
