The Strader Lab hosted the annual biology department cookie baking and ugly sweater contest. Congratulations to Ryan Emenecker for most attractive cookie (duckys in sweaters), and Jamie Mullin for winning both ugliest sweater and tastiest cookie (chocolate pizza). Jamie graciously deferred one of his prizes to Kari Miller who took second place for both most attractive and tastiest cookie with her reindeer gingerbread macarons. Thanks to everyone who participated in the baking, wearing and/or tasting of cookies.
