Here is what Ulli has to say about Life Coaching. About Life Coaching Have you ever thought of being more happy, successful and having […] Continue reading →

These brownies are at least as delicious as the most rich, unhealthy, gooey brownies I have ever eaten. Since I am a chocoholic of note, you can take my word for it. It is hard to believe that they are actually good for you. Because they are so rich, you will be satisfied with a couple of squares.

They can be prepared in a large batch, cut up into bite-size pieces and kept in an […] Continue reading →
