About E.P.L.S

What’s Easypeasylemonsqueezy all about?

Hi – thanks for popping over :-) So what’s it all about then? What’s E.P.L.S all about?

It’s a flipping long story but made short, this is my little recipe blog for very EASY recipes – for those ‘oh lordy, what am I going to make for dinner’ days. Somehow it’s also turned into a bit of baking and then came a little lifestyle …. thrown in!

So I’m Clare – normal (*slightly mad*)  workaholic, trying to find a balance between work and play – this is my play! I am a Home Economist by education and graduated with a Home Ec degree from Sheffield. I then spent 5 years in Product Development  at various food manufacturers. I am now Business Development Director for a Food Ingredients company and due to work stresses and commitments I found myself less & less in the kitchen! I decided that this wouldn’t do AT ALL – as the kitchen is where I relax and I NEED to be cooking! And I mean need…

We unfortunatley lost some lovely ‘family’ recipes when we lost someone very dear to us. So this is my way of sharing and documenting my recipes. I’m no chef,  but I like to think I can produce good, plain, tasty nosh with no nonsense.

I hope you enjoy and please, please get involved you lovely peeps! Any reviews, suggestions or if you ever want to ‘guest blog’ just let me know, if it fits with our ethos – then let’s go….. Use the SHARE WITH US page to get in touch xxx

I am blessed that I am surrounded by an amazing family and friends and along the way I will introduce you to a few characters.

First up let me introduce you to my Bestie! The EPLS Cocktail Queen – Jane who’s been with me from the start! She has produced some delectable delicious cocktails over the last 36 months and you can find them all under 6pm Drinkies!   Hopefully she will continue to share these beauties. Jane is a busy working mum of 2 – with a heart of gold and the best friend anyone could wish for!

We already have ‘He-Who-Doesn’t-Cook’ my (now Ex) other half! and soon we will have ‘BBQ Boy’ who will join for the summer :-). We also have the D, my friend, who is very clever and shares some of his lovely stuff too; so together with the ‘Cocktail Queen’ we’ll have a great team! And super fun!

Along the way there will be a few new characters 😉

Just found your website after following you on Twitter. It's great. Could you answer a question about carrot cake. Why do all recipes use oil instead of butter? Would it make the cake taste 'oily'? Love your twitters and recipes. Thanks

    Oh thanks Val - i love getting comments like this :-) Oil is usually used as it makes the carrot cake very moist. Cx Have you subscribed for the once per month round up email?

Hi Clare I have been an admirer of your website for a while now, because of your beautiful art direction and styling and of course the recipes. Me and my creative partner are creating a charity cook book with recipes from missed mothers, we love the idea that recipes shape a person (and their career) and are usually passed down through generations. Of course as a fan of your page I would love to ask you if you had a recipe which has been passed down through your family which you’d like to be in the book. The book already has a lot of buzz around it in the advertising world and we are hoping to get it into the media following the production. The charity we are donating the proceeds to is to help breast cancer awareness, a charity which had deep personal meaning. If you would like to be involved and have a recipe from a loved one who has passed which inspired your career we would be thrilled to have you as a part of this new charity venture. Look forward to hearing from you Eden

Hi Clare, I've just downloaded your recipe for Cherry Madeira and it says ' Pre-heat the oven to 190C' . Is this temperature for a conventional oven or for a fan-assisted oven?. Many thanks.
    Clare x says:
    Conventional oven Stuart - but all ovens vary I'm afraid - if you have fan assisted I would suggest 180C Cx
