I love cooking with herbs and spices, and both the husband and I enjoy spicy food.  When Schwartz contacted me and asked me to feature a recipe using their oregano herb, I knew exactly which recipe I would choose.


Slow Cooker Jambalya



During the week we don’t do family dinners.  The husband gets in from work just in time for bath and bed (the small people, not him!).  Once the kids are asleep the husband and I have our dinner.  The thought of spending another hour prepping another dinner is exhausting in itself. All I want to do is  chill on the sofa and watch Homelands.  That’s why this slow cooker Jambalaya is perfect.

I prepare it in the morning whilst simultaneously feeding small people and packing book bags and generally being all kinds of super mum.  Then at the end of the day when bath time is done it’s just a case of grabbing a spoon and a bowl.  Perfect!


It’s deliciously warming and filling.  Plus the house smells mouth wateringly good whilst it’s cooking!
