I have a reader! Look! I see you!
I'm not an expert on cooking. I mess up, I burn things, I set things on fire... But I love everything about good food. I love eating it, I love making it, I love being near it. Read all about my food adventures - baking successes (or catastrophes), cooking, and thoughts on the restaurants I eat in.

So I’m preparing to go to Taiwan for the summer – something I’ll probably write about later. I had to go to New York to get my visa and since I was paying a ridiculous amount to get there (28$ round trip Princeton Junction to Penn Station? You’d think the tickets were made of crack.), I figure I’d make a day trip out of it. I ended up going alone, which was amazing . I got to roam around (read: get mad lost) and go where I wanted to go and take my sweet time ambling.
And I ambled all over. For those of you New York socialites who know your way around, read this and weep: Penn Station –> Taiwanese Embassy (5th and 42nd)–> Rockefeller Plaza –> Magnolia Bakery (6th and 49th) –> Momofuku Milk Bar (2nd and 13th) –> Penn Station. And since I’m poor and wanted to maximize my dessert money, I brought my own lunch/water and didn’t take the subway. My feet hated me afterward, but I ended up only spending ~18$ for my trip, minus the cost of that stupid, hot, smelly train – not bad for the city.
