Everyone on our team remembered the kitchen remodel of a home in Cleveland Heights, Ohio. After installing her counter tops, the homeowner brought us some wonderful Double Chocolate Espresso Brownies in gratitude for a job well done. Not only are we sharing some images of the kitchen remodel, but you’ll find the brownie recipe below!
