Finding a Plan

By the arithmetic of piece value, White has an advantage. Converting the advantage is another matter. How should White proceed?

White to move

I played 33.Nf7, which throws away the advantage in the opinion of Stockfish. Nonetheless, I went on to win when my opponent managed to let a rook get trapped. Twice, my opponent offered a draw, including just before my last move.

This game was played at three days per move and lasted two weeks. Most of my moves were made between 5:00 am and 6:00 am on the iPad Chess.com app.
