Breadmaker Cinnamon Rolls

This is a lab favorite. The week after I give lab meeting, I provide the food. People get very excited for these! They'd also make a great Christmas morning or New Year's Day breakfast, which is why I decided to post them now. My recipe is for the breadmaker, but you could easily (or not so easily) make it by hand.

There are three parts: the dough, the filling, and the icing. This recipe makes one 9x13 pan.

A few DIY Christmas decorations

I just realized that I never took pictures of everything to show my completed decorations, but given that it's Christmas Eve, I think it's a little late for that. So here are a few of my DIY Christmas decoration ideas from this year in various stages of completeness.
Little jingle bells under overturned wine glasses with votive candles on top. I got this idea from several pins on pinterest back in early fall showing candles atop wine glasses with fall-colored flowers underneath.
