Reply Camille December 27, 2010 at 4:50 pm Haha, parents always have the best food around 🙂 If I had gone home for Christmas I would have gained 10 pounds! Reply Becki @ Hike, Bike, Eat December 27, 2010 at 4:54 pm Buy some of those Jolt pants that have the maternity-style waist. They are now the loves of my life, and still appear stylish as I expand after each meal of leftovers 🙂 Reply Blog is the New Black December 27, 2010 at 4:55 pm That cup in the top pics is adorable!

Plus your mom sounds like the kind of mom who would let all your pants out for you 🙂 Reply Sharon December 27, 2010 at 5:05 pm This looks amazing. You and your Mom should open a restaurant…and as an excellent compromise to your East/West Coast lives, you should open it here in Texas….Please… Reply Lacey @ Lake Life December 27, 2010 at 5:05 pm Absolutely! Your mom seems like the kind who would let all your pants out for you 🙂 Reply R @ Learning As I Chop December 27, 2010 at 5:10 pm Nothing like mom’s homecooking Reply Molly December 27, 2010 at 5:22 pm Oh my gosh that looks great! I wish I could stay home for forever too. Reply Jessica @ How Sweet It Is December 27, 2010 at 5:24 pm I would never leave. Ever. Reply Mackenzie @ Whatever, Gatsby December 27, 2010 at 5:26 pm oh man, please tell me there is room for one more. i’ll bring the extra sweatpants? Reply Jil @ Big City, Lil Kitchen December 27, 2010 at 5:27 pm Sweatpants solve the pants problem! 😛 Breakfast looks delicious! Reply Monica @ Urban Canines December 27, 2010 at 5:36 pm Delicious! I love strawberries and french toast. Only thing that comes close is warm scones, fresh cream and home made jam! Reply jenna December 27, 2010 at 5:38 pm even better (or more decadent)…this was CROISSANT french toast! Reply Maria @ The Fitted Apron December 28, 2010 at 5:23 am That sounds amazing! I vow to make it one day. Reply Nicole December 27, 2010 at 5:39 pm Yeah I’m not looking forward to going back to college… My mom hardly cooks but I love having my beautiful kitchen and all of the fresh fruits and veggies my little heart desires. though the number of cookies means staying at home typically involves bigger pants for me too 😉 I absolutely love your website, by the way. I want to be you when I grow up 😉 Reply stacey-healthylife December 27, 2010 at 5:51 pm That’s funny. 🙂 Reply elizabeth December 27, 2010 at 6:15 pm STRETCHIER pants, that’s all you will need. Target has some that not only stretch, but sort of relax to the point where they kind of don’t stay on that well by the end of the day, which is probably because I’m SHRINKING as the day wears on and I can eat more cookies than I thought I could. Highly recommend. Reply J. December 27, 2010 at 6:24 pm Bacon…croissants…butter…cheese….fruits…good …now , u need chocolate, etc. I wear elastic waistbands as much as possible. I have no restraint…and it is not good! This might be TMI, but I’m literally “plugged” up….making me having serious stressful issues more than ever as of late! Reply notyet100 December 27, 2010 at 6:28 pm enjoy,food looks so delicious Reply Baking 'n' Books December 27, 2010 at 6:29 pm Nostalgia. But wouldn’t Adam miss you? 😉 I assume he’s with his family? Does he have Mom’s approval?! In my opinion – forget the Stretchy pants. Go straight for the elastic-waist band sweatpants. Stretchy pants just stretch – they still show all the bumps and bulges. Sweats? Now they do the job of “hovering”… 😉 Reply jessica December 27, 2010 at 6:32 pm It’s so funny that you mentioned bigger pants ’cause I’m writing a post about that right now 🙂 It’s so worth it, right?! Reply Nicole December 27, 2010 at 6:35 pm Is that french toast? Breakfast for dinner might now be on the menu! Reply jill December 27, 2010 at 6:50 pm you had me at croissant french toast Reply Diana @ frontyardfoodie December 27, 2010 at 6:51 pm Only when we’re mostly away from home do we appreciate it so much:) The same goes with our parents, only if we’re mostly away do they want us around. haha Reply Avery December 27, 2010 at 7:02 pm Story of my life.. Or more like what I wish was my life, because my mom says no :/ Reply Amalfi Girl December 27, 2010 at 7:08 pm I will never have that problem. All my mom knows how to make is turkey meatballs and bland chicken soup (sorry mom!) 🙂 Reply Sarah December 27, 2010 at 7:10 pm Not fair! I’m in Afghanistan and that food is making me drool all over my desk! The food we have here doesn’t hold a candle…obviously. Enjoy! Reply Kim December 27, 2010 at 7:20 pm I LOVE that tea cup. So adorable. Reply Leigh December 27, 2010 at 7:34 pm You can always be *home* – food takes us there! Reply Sharon December 27, 2010 at 7:36 pm Why is breakfast food so fabulous? That looks a-MAzeing. Croissant french toast and bacon? And what looks like a fresh strawberry sauce? Can this breakfast be your next recipe post? pretty please….

I think my mom would be honest about that with me… Reply Kay December 28, 2010 at 8:31 pm I’m adopting your mom when you return to CA.
