I began this blog in 2014 as an outlet for my food and lifestyle passions and interests. Jam and chutney making fortuitously grew out of a homemade hamper I advertised in 2015 yet the essence of what I established here several years ago has still held true. Here you'll find simple recipes and ideas that can be easily replicated at home, all with a positive health and well-being focus. From food, nutrition and fitness through to relaxation, family time, entertaining and the natural world; The Woman Next Door IS my place where all aspects of a healthy lifestyle come together. Life is about balance so expect to see a little bit of everything!
