I am Honora Toothman and I live in Raleigh North Carolina. I am only 14 years old but I am the cook of the house. I have 6 other crazy siblings ranging from unborn to 16 years old. I love to cook. I have been using All Recipes for my whole life. I have been finding new ideas. I started cooking because my parents do have the time. My dad is a banker, and is always away at work. If he isn't he is on work calls. My mom is starting a new career of web design. She is always locked up in her room on the computer. So that leaves me. My older brother has a job so I am the oldest in the house. I have found out that my 9 year old sister is the pickest human being on the planet. I like trying new things so most of the time she does not eat. Only thing she eats is pasta and pizza.

My cooking triumphs
When I made my sisters birthday cake. It was the first one I ever made. I wanted to go all out so I made it a three tier. It was covered in pink flowers, and my little sister loved it.
My cooking tragedies
I was making cupcakes when everything turned into a disaster. I make a lot of cupcakes so I am pretty comfortable making them. I was in a hurry to get them done, so I put on the icing while the cupcake was still hot, and then it started melting. The kitchen was a mess, and I had no cupcakes to bring to the party. I felt like I was about to burst into tears. I pulled myself together, and managed to put together enough cupcakes for everyone.
