I have always enjoyed baking and especially making healthy snacks. Just like Busy Izzy does. She enjoys making healthy snacks for her friends, when they visit her at Nix & Nax. "Help yourself to my snaxalicious snacks", says Izzy to her friends.
Do you love to cook? I do and Busy Izzy does too.
When my sister Elaine and I were really young, around 6 and 7 years of age, we would make huts at the back of our house on the farm. Sometimes, our dad would help us out by putting up old sacks to make walls for our hut. When the walls were up, Elaine and I would get busy, making mud pies, mud quiches, mud cakes... basically mud everything. It was lots of fun playing with mud.
We always enjoyed watching our mum cooking and making healthy snacks in the kitchen.
We could tell that our mum was a wonderful cook and our dad was as well. The food was delicious and we often asked for seconds.
We quickly learned how to be pretty good makers and bakers of healthy food too. Just like Busy Izzy, our mum always knew exactly what to do.
