Birthday Brunch

Every year for my birthday I have the same dilemma. What to do?! The older I get the less I feel like partying and the more I want to relax and do something low key. I was undecided for a while as to what I wanted to do, but because I planned to celebrate on a Sunday, I figured brunch would be perfect. While I do enjoy cooking, I didn’t want to spend all day in the kitchen so I did take a few short cuts with my menu.  To save on time, I purchased the chicken for my chicken and waffles and also full size crab cakes which I made into minis. I had so many things I wanted to make, it was so hard to narrow them down.  Besides the items pictured, I also made a caramelized onion and spinach quiche and fresh fruit skewers.
