Ceramic Cookware, A Timeless Classic
One thing I remember about growing up is that my Grannies both had prized pots and pans. These were the ones that they used their medical tape as a label to boldly write their name on when they sent it down to the church for special occasion potlucks. Tall blue speckled pots and roasting pans, decorated glass & ceramic cookware, cast iron in all shapes and sizes were home to many amazing meals. Dressing, black eyed peas, fried pork chops, scrambled eggs, and casseroles wouldn’t have been the same without these seasoned dishes. The same dishes were the ones that you and you siblings and cousins fought over when your Granny moved on to the next life. Just keeping it real, that’s how important good cookware can be. Cookie sheets and little foil pans that stop being useful a year after you purchase them are very infuriating. A good dish lasts several lifetimes and will see many’a meal within them. And, of course, that’s sustainable!

Aroma Doveware sent me a Mini Pot Set of natural ceramic cookware to test out some truly classic and timeless pots. They are the perfect size for a personal dessert. I often cook too much of everything, so this challenged me to make just a small portion of my favorite dessert. I usually cook two large Peach Crostatas that I learned to make in a Sur La Table class (Wine Night Out: Italian Summer). This time, I divided the ingredients in half to make 2 mini portions. I paired it with a quickly made Peach Nice Cream – keep scrolling to see the recipe.
Peach Nice Cream Recipe
Another thing I remember about growing up were my Papa’s ice cream floats and my great uncle’s (his brother) ice cream churn. Papa loved cokes (soda, pop, whatever you call it), Blue Bell ice cream, and sweets, and Granny was diabetic. What a horrible combination lol. I wish I had known about healthier foods that weren’t so bland back when I was young. I could have introduced them to her. She loved a good slice of pound cake and would “sneak” slices of sweets after big family functions, even though she knew she didn’t need it. I can’t imagine living so reserved, unable to partake in delicious food around you, without a comparable option. I hope more people have access to simple recipes like this that are amazing alternatives. I’ve been sharing them with my family in hopes that they’ll try them and see how yummy they are.
Since I had a lot of extra slices of peaches due to making mini sized crostatas, I froze them and made Peach Nice Cream! There was no hard churning process involved. Only 2 ingredients are necessary. It’s all fruit, so it’s healthy! Here’s how to make it:
You will need:
- 1 Banana
- 1/2 Peach
- Cut both the banana and peach into small pieces (around 1″ in size) and freeze them until they are fully frozen. Timing for this depends on your particular freezer. I say throw them in at least 3-4 hours before you need them.
- When you’re ready to eat the nice cream, remove the ingredients from the freezer, and place them in your blender.
- Pulse until they are of a creamy, frozen yogurt-esque consistency.
- Eat and enjoy!
Y’all, it’s really that simple. The banana taste isn’t super overpowering. I used to hate bananas (but, oddly, loved banana Laffy Taffy), so I feel if I can say it was good, it definitely was. You can mix almost any fruit into it and create your own nice cream. Pair the nice cream with your mini dessert in your ceramic cookware set for a fun date night for you and your boo, or one for now and one for later all for yourself.
I think a cookie cake or a brownie would also be amazing in this Doveware Ceramic Cookware Mini Pot Set. What dessert would you use it to create?
