My Fifteen Minutes of Fame with Schwartz Slow Cookers

It’s not everyday that you get asked if you would like to star in an advertising viral campaign is it? Being unbelievably busy I was tempted to turn down the chance, but then something said to me, why not, go for it, it will be an experience…

The campaign idea for Schwartz was actually completely perfect for me, the chance to learn how to cook something delicious using a slow cooker and save myself a bit of time. Regular readers will be more than aware that I have absolutely zero time to myself and that i’m driven mad by kids and other demands on my time. I think you’ll see in the films, I was a little bit nervous and as @mediocre_mum pointed out I clearly don’t know how to chop an onion properly so I really did need the help of Lizzie Betts the professional chef who was sent along to assist me.

Luckily nothing burnt, it all went very smoothly and I had a lovely day. The kids and the hubby have really taken to these Slow Cooker sauces and I must say they do seem to help you make a very quick hearty meal. Our current favourite is the Sausage and Bean one.

Have a little look at the videos here:

The kids whom I don’t usually allow to be shown, do look exceptionally cute in the last video. I’m quite pleased with them, although I cant believe how pregnant I actually look! Thanks to the whole team it was a really fun experience.

    Well done you. I actually saw this a few days ago when I was on my iPad, playing some game and there were these annoying adds…then I looked properly and realised I could recognise the famous mummmy blogger in her kitchen ;))))

    I think you've now finally convinced me I NEED a slow cooker. Any recommendations?
