This is practically not a recipe, just a whim inspired by the delightfully-named, almost-official state sandwich of Massachusetts. I was getting more peanut butter at the grocery store and saw marshmallow fluff in the same aisle for 50 cents a jar. I first saw fluffernutters (if you haven’t figured it out yet, that’s a peanut […]Read more "Recipe: Fluffernutter toast"
As Dartmouth’s Homecoming weekend comes to a close, I could list many things I miss about my undergrad alma mater. I enjoyed hiking Franconia with freshmen, training and chilling out with the ski team, petting Mike Silverman’s adorable dogs between homework problems, long conversations on random topics with floormates and friends.

The main attraction in Cambridge was the fireworks show at Midsummer Common, which was cleared of cows (and, semi-miraculously, of cow pies) for […]Read more "Guy Fawkes and some thoughts on community"
Here’s my thesis (I guess I’m going non-anonymous now…) to compensate: LEAthesisfinal (Experimental control of spin chain dynamics) In other news: I will probably be abandoning this blog in favor of a new one before I start grad school. Hopefully I will actually update that one. It’s not settled where I’ll be yet, but I know […]Read more "Haven’t been on in a while…"
