Charlie Speaks to Youth of West Angeles Church http://charliesbrownies.com/charlie-speaks-to-youth-of-west-angeles-church/ http://charliesbrownies.com/charlie-speaks-to-youth-of-west-angeles-church/#respond Sun, 14 Dec 2014 16:25:08 +0000 http://charliesbrownies.com/?p=2264 Charlie was recently invited to share his story with members of West Angeles Community Development Corporation’s Manhood 101 Program, designed to prepare our next generation of young men to reach their full potential and achieve success for themselves, their family and our community at-large.

The Manhood 101 program emerged to meet the immediate needs of the young men in the South Los Angeles area. Young men need a safe space to ask questions, seek answers and be exposed to meaningful information as they navigate toward manhood. Most importantly, young men need to be exposed to potential mentors who have faced similarly perceived insurmountable odds and achieved despite their circumstances. We recognize that our youth confront various issues daily and need tools to help them combat academic, social, emotional and economic barriers to success.

Breaking news! Charlie’s Brownies is officially incorporated!  As we have grown from a tiny, local operation to building a city and nationwide following, we have actively begun taking the next steps to becoming a thriving company in the market place. Naturally, the first step was to register with the state and become a corporation. Thanks to eMinutes, all of the associated legal fees were waived and the process was made simple and easy.

Thank you Jeff and the rest of the eMinutes team for providing this outstanding service!

A few months ago eMinutes launched an ambitious campaign to incorporate 500 companies 100% free of charge. Recently, they hit this goal where they covered $500,000 in legal fees and absorbed $100,000 in expenses to help entrepreneurs incorporate!

They are doing it again!

eMinutes recently announced that they are waiving another $725,000 in legal fees for entrepreneurs. They will now be incorporating 725 first-time entrepreneurs in California, New York, Texas and the District of Columbia for free.

To qualify an entrepreneur must have a defined business plan or an active website. All eligible entrepreneurs must have retained the services of a CPA and agree to pay filing fees.

Visit eMinutes.com for more information or if you are interested in incorporating your company!

Charlie’s Brownies Goes Gluten-Free! http://charliesbrownies.com/charlies-brownies-goes-gluten-free/ http://charliesbrownies.com/charlies-brownies-goes-gluten-free/#respond Wed, 17 Oct 2012 13:08:15 +0000 http://charliesbrownies.com/?p=1911 Gluten is made up of the mixture of two proteins, glutenin and gliadin, and most commonly found in wheat, rye, and barley grain based foods.  When heated, gluten traps the carbon-dioxide produced by yeast, enabling baked goods to rise more and retain their shape, reducing crumbling. It gives wheat dough its elastic texture and is used as a thickener and binder in products like soup and ice-cream.

Over the past five years, you may have seen more and more packages at your local super market stamped with the label “Gluten-Free.”  These products have become a popular choice among consumers, and many food distributors have begun to include gluten-free foods in their product line. Why may you ask?

Close to 5% of the population suffers from one of three conditions: wheat allergy, non-celiac gluten sensitivity, and celiac disease.  Celiac disease is a chronic inflammatory disorder in which small amounts of gluten trigger an autoimmune attack on the small intestine.  In effect, the small intestine is rendered unable to absorb nutrients, which then leads to problems such as severe stomach pain, digestive problems, and in many cases weight loss. For these estimated three million people, a gluten-free diet is not a choice, but rather a necessity.

The term gluten-free, according to the dictionary, “indicates a supposed harmless level of gluten,” rather than a complete absence.  In 2007, the FDA issued regulations limiting the use of “gluten-free” in food products to those with less than 20 ppm of gluten.

In 2008, Oprah Winfrey temporarily gave up gluten as part of a 21-day cleanse diet. Her golden touch definitely contributed to the popularity of this dietary preference.

Charlie’s Brownies can only truly be called “The Ultimate Brownie Experience” if our gluten-free customers can also enjoy our brownies guilt-free.

We are proud to announce that all eight flavors on our menu (upon request) are now available in Gluten-Free!

Spread the word! We hope you enjoy and we are looking forward to serving you!

Awkward Black Girl Season 2 Premiere http://charliesbrownies.com/awkward-black-girl-season-2-premiere/ http://charliesbrownies.com/awkward-black-girl-season-2-premiere/#respond Thu, 14 Jun 2012 16:19:27 +0000 http://charliesbrownies.com/?p=1840

On June 13th, Charlie’s Brownies was invited to celebrate the Season 2 Premiere of The Mis-Adventures of Awkward Black Girl starring Issa Rae. Leading up to the event, there was a lot of excitement and anticipation because the show had just been picked up by Pharrell Williams for his YouTube Channel entitled ‘i am OTHER’. To make it official, Pharrell sponsored the event including the bar which featured his luxury alcohol beverage Qream.

To go along with Qream, the event featured gourmet desserts from three pastry companies, one of them being your very own Charlie’s Brownies!  This event was also the premiere of our Red Velvet brownie as seen below:

As guests of the event, we were the first to watch Episode 1 of the 2nd Season. I must say that it was all that it was hyped up to be and more! The plot of was interesting, the writing was clever, and the characters, especially Issa were hilarious!  To cap it off:
