  1. Well………2 things: Didn’t know you were a fellow Jayhawk! Class of ’88 KUMC. Second, thanks for the began peppermint ice cream recipe. I have an ice cream maker that makes 1 pint at a time. At Christmas, Peppermint ice cream has been a tradition in our family since before I was born. My daughter, aged 31, is lactose intolerant and has not been able to have any since we figured out she couldn’t have milk products. Now she can! I’m going to surprise her this year on Christmas eve with her very own bowl of (new) family tradition! We just found out her baby son is lactose intolderant too. Now I know our tradition will be carried on after my mom and I are gone. The best way I can say thank you is – Rock Chalk Jayhawk! 🙂

    • ALRIGHT KELLI! Rock Chalk! I graduated in 2010 (after 6 years, ugh) with my Music Therapy degree.

      Hope your daughter enjoys the ice cream. I can eat dairy but my tummy doesn’t love it so I try not to very often. This is so creamy and other than the slight coconut taste, you really can’t tell that it isn’t dairy.

  2. Haaaa! Girl you should hear the stuff guys in NYC say to pick you up.
    Also, you should see how 90% of the guys who hit on me are middle aged. Ew.

    This peppermint ice cream looks delicious and yummy and pretty and makes me think of Christmas!! 🙂

    • REALLY? I feel like the times I’ve been to New York and L.A. (and other big cities) that guys just seem to ignore me more. I NEVER get hit on in big cities. But I also don’t really go out partying much. There is even a big difference between the small town I grew up in and where I live now. When I go home, I get hit on substantially more. I guess there is just less to choose from in smaller places. Haha.

  3. That looks like an amazing ice cream & I loved the cute story about you & your partner getting together. I’m also interested in that brownie, I think we need more deets about that too!

  4. I love the story – and then. bam – on a completly unrelated note! I kept thinking how does icecream relate to this story!?

  5. Haha, that’s hilarious. But hey, that ice cream looks great! And that brownie!!

  6. I am so making this!

    Why is it that guys think the grocery store is the place to pick up women?

  8. Not that it invalidates the larger criticism (that you have to show a willingness to buy the pop BEFORE making a move) but you should give the poor guy a break on his word choice–to this day I have a hard time divorcing my brain of some of the anachronistic slang I inadvertently picked up by summering with my grandma as a child. That said, the ice cream (and this larger theme of vegan recipes) looks great.

    • HAHA! Oh, I know. I am from Kansas. I say things that I’m sure sound trashy all the time. For some reason, “pop”, is one that I have been able to remove from my vocabulary. I don’t know why, I just don’t like the word. Even though I grew up saying it.

      And thanks, the ice cream was quite tasty. I love peppermint!
