Firstly, thank you for visiting.  I hope you have enjoyed what you’ve seen so far.  If in fact, you’ve landed here by accident, please take a look around and welcome to my kitchen in the cloud, poach me quick!

My name is Hayley Ellis, I’m a healthy food blogger and this is my overdue and highly requested (albeit by my youngest daughter) attempt at a ‘cook book’ of my family’s favourite recipes! A bit unconventional you may wonder, particularly if all my daughter requested was a couple of recipes and tidbits.

Indulge me for just a minute, which I’ll only ask of you once! In addition to being a passionate home cook, ingredient assembler and lover of everything food, I’m also a closet IT geek, an avid reader, cook book collector and wannabe writer. So it really was only a matter of time before all these interests collided and poach me quick was born!

If at the very least my daughter is satisfied, mission accomplished! If on the other hand, I’m fortunate enough to share my passion for food with others I’d be thrilled and quite frankly humbled to also share my kitchen with you!

Finally, feel free to reach out, like and comment and I’ll do my best to respond, you guessed it, over a cup of tea!

…and yes, they are spring onions!
