The Power of Social Media
In the summer of 2005 I started a small record label called Everafter Music. I was the sole employee and the sole client. By the same time in 2006, I was moving to Lubbock, TX, to finish school at Texas Tech University. Essentially, the company hadn't taken off in that year and I was closing up shop.
Chicken and Rosemary Meatballs with Sautéed Tomatoes and Spinach
These chicken meatballs are something I've been thinking about this one for a while, but have only recently gotten around to making it.
