About us

We’re an Aussie-American duo writing and photographing our attempts to make yummy things in the kitchen.

To “faff about” is to potter around doing a whole lot of nothing.

You might see a lot of faffing about because one of us (ahem, Lil) has too much time on their hands. Which is also why we started this silly time-consuming endeavour in the first place. So, if you have a real job and feel like perving on what the other half does with themselves all day (in a totally non-creepy way), join us. We promise it will be a waste of your time.

Lil loves photos and has been bringing her clunky camera to the dinner table since at least a decade ago, much to her own and her dining companions’ embarrassment. She has not become any more socially acceptable since the advent of smartphones and #foodporn.

She is also stubborn and insists on British/Australian spelling, but uses American measurements because #americanlyf. Besides, why do Aussies call 20mL a tablespoon when most everybody else uses 15mL?

We are rookies learning about food, cooking, composting and gardening. If you have half a brain, you probably know better (and more efficient!) ways to do things, so have mercy and chuck us a bone – let us know in the comments how we can cook good and do other things good.
