My name is Mary. I also have a hobby. Sometimes I have got some free time. As my hobby is cooking I like to make cakes and pies. My cakes are very tasty, but I like pies best of all. I’ll tell you how I make pies with cabbage.
First of all I take a head of cabbage, cut and put it into a frying pan. Then I take carrots and peel them. By the way, I have a nice grater at home. I usually grate carrots, onions using my grater. I put salt, mix ingredients, add some water. Then I stew these vegetables in the frying pan. I usually buy some paste for my pies.
I cut up paste, roll it and make small pies. Then I put pies with stewed cabbage into the oven. It takes twenty minutes to bake them. My parents and friends like to eat my pies. My hobby brings me a lot of good emotions. I can make close people happy when I cook tasty dishes. Thanks to my hobby, I can relax, forget about problems and enjoy the process.
