I had a brunch on the horizon- an EPIC brunch! I would be mixing many friends, from various stages of my life in a veritable, “Quelcy Kogel, This is Your Life!” type of morning. The first goal of the menu planning was relative simplicity. The second goal was variation. Most of these friends had found their way to my table before, so I was looking to offer something new to each and every one of them. My solution was a miniature take on brunch staples, and in the case of the frittatas, miniatures with an alliterative twist (I am a language dork after all). Stay tuned for the rest of the brunch!
