United States
I am a dabbler. I am a creator. I am a teacher. Among my hobbies are lapidary, carving, sewing, cooking, poetry, short stories, world design, game design, roleplay, photography, graphic manipulation and creation, DJing, bump making, parody writing, remixing, recording parodies, altering and decorating hats and clothes, making walking sticks, staffs, and canes, and generally anything else that comes into my head. I cannot draw to save my life, but I love to read, I love to create, I love to reach out and touch the lives of others, and be touched in turn. I am a husband. I am a father. I am a bird owner. I am student. I am too many things for a brief paragraph to possibly communicate. So come know me, and let me know you. On KoL I am known as the DJ Prima Vera Angelhair.

Over the last few years my personal style has really... evolved. I've changed, and I've pushed a lot of my skills to new limits. I keep pushing them farther, learning more, and seeing just what I can do in myriad fields. I enjoy sharing what I learn with others, and hope to both take and give inspiration in the process.

Criminara Countdown 2016

Journal Entry: Sat Apr 23, 2016, 10:58 AM
This is my sixth year running I've made something I call my Criminara sauce.  I can only make it during a few weeks in the months of May and June, as it requires access to black velvet apricots, which are shipped in to our local Hy-Vee from California.  They were a special draw when the store first opened, and I look forward eagerly to their arrival ever since.

I call it 'Criminara' because of its strong resemblence in appearance to marinara sauce, and its strong, crimson coloration.  My wife, Rachel, has become deathly allergic to tomatoes since having her appendix removed some six years ago now, and this is one of many methods I've devised to make fruit-based pasta sauces for her.  I often use other stone fruits (nectarines, plums, cherries, apricots, and peaches) with mangoes for other sauces, but I only get to make two or three batches of Criminara a year.

When I make Criminara, I tend to make enough for two to three meals, stretching it as best I can; I'll often mix portions for myself with normal spaghetti sauce so that there's more for Rachel, though I only do this for subsequent meals, and naturally away from her portion.

The first year I made Criminara (2011) I did not have ready access to a camera yet, so there are no pictures.  There are only these links:
