Hi, this is my life.
I love cooking.
They smell amazing.
My dad's a...
But I think I'm already better than him.
but people usually call me...
Mum, she wears the trousers
and is the only one Dad's afraid of.
I'm loving the hair.
Big Sister, Megan.
She's all grown-up now
and crazy to get on with life.
Jack - he's so good at sport
he's going to be playing for Britain soon.
This is Holly.
She is determined to be
the greatest fashion designer
of her generation.
Dad - even though he's hard on the outside,
he's soft and mooshy on the inside.
And he's quite a good cook too.
Eh, excuse me. How about "very"?
When you're the youngest, you have to fight to get noticed,
so that's why I love to...
This is my world.
# Waltzing Matilda! #
Hold on tight.
It's summer, and me and my crazy family
are spending it in LA.
Let's go. Are we ready?
Holly's best friend, Elspeth, is with us too.
And we're enjoying everything in America...
And best of all, I'm spending lots of time in the kitchen.
-Really, really nice.
And some of the amazing things that I'm cooking are going to be
on my blog for my friends and everyone back home to see.
Today, I'll be sharing my Drummer Sticky Ribs,
Big Beat stars and Pop-Power Brownies.
And there's a good reason for the poptastic food.
As well as cooking, I'm really into music.
I play the drums.
Tilly, get inside!
So today, I'm throwing a pop party, complete with a karaoke machine.
The only problem is, the rest of my family are virtually tone deaf.
My dad tries to be into music but he can't sing.
# Don't you wish your girlfriend was hot like me. #
He can't dance and he can't play an instrument.
But the big question is...
To make my pop party the best ever, my brother and sisters
are going to a famous recording studio in LA
to make a special song for the party.
Lady Gaga actually did her debut album in this room.
She still dressed as crazy as she does now.
Everyone knows that LA is the film capital of America
but it's also the home of the American music industry.
We also have an isolation booth right back there.
The singers who come here use the booths to record in total silence.
Maybe they should leave Jack in there.
Luckily, I'm far away from his racket in the kitchen.
My Drummer Sticky Ribs are so good,
I have to hide them from Dad or he'll eat them all.
They smell amazing whilst they cook, so I'm worried he'll sniff them out.
I'll start by making a BBQ sauce.
This is so easy.
It's just putting all the ingredients in a pan, really.
Add onions, garlic, chilli-flakes and fennel seeds.
Fennel tastes quite strange.
It tastes a bit like liquorice.
Then it's sugar, soy sauce and LOADS of ketchup.
600 grams or a really big squirt.
Ketchup bottles always make rude and funny noises.
That'll be ready soon.
if you're going to take over the kitchen like me,
adults like you to ask first.
Leave the sauce to simmer and get the meat ready.
These are pork ribs and they're super popular in America.
Add salt and pepper.
These are the bones to the ribs
and that's why you call them...
..because, once all the meat's gone, it looks like drumstick.
Remember to wash your hands before and after touching raw meat.
(They smell delicious.)
I knew you'd smell them.
I can smell something delicious.
Oh, la, la!
What are you doing to my kitchen?
Em, let me show you a little trick as well.
I'm out of here.
-I'll see you soon.
With Dad out of MY kitchen, I can get on with cooking.
Save me six. They smell delicious.
They smell... Ahhhh!
-I knew he'd come in...
He always does, especially when it's ribs.
With Dad finally gone,
cover the ribs with tinfoil and
put into the oven for...
I hope my brother and sisters are getting hungry.
They're busy making a special song for me,
and first they have to record a backing track.
Each instrument has to be recorded separately,
and, next, it's Megan on the tambourine.
Excuse me, you're not the tambourinist.
I wouldn't be surprised if Chris Martin from Coldplay
had sat in that chair, or Elton John.
And now Megan Ramsay!
That was great.
Back in the kitchen, my pop party food is coming along nicely too.
-Ah, when did you get these in? They look...
I got them in very nice and early.
Can I do a Daddy?
Now to get these on my blog.
My brother and sisters are going to love these.
Ribs are Jack's favourite.
At the studio, the guys are about to write the words
to the song for my party.
We're Ramsay on a mission to...
This is hard, isn't it?
"Now, it might seem silly but our sister's called Tilly..."
The trouble is, they decided to make it about me
and I'm dreading what they'll come up with.
"Up at dawn, she's out of her mind."
"Throwing strops of every kind."
"She's our crazy sister who we want to kick in the behind."
OK, say that all again while I write it down.
But even if I don't like the song,
they'll love what I've cooked for them.
It's nice to mix things up sometimes
and I like savoury biscuits
just as much as sweet ones.
I'm pretty sure that my savoury Big Beat Stars
will hit the right note.
First I'll add flour and cheese.
Remember to leave a little bit at the end for sprinkling over.
Then it's rosemary, sugar,
baking soda and salt.
This is really quite easy.
Just add all the ingredients and then you get
your hands in for a mix.
It's like a cloud of smoke.
In goes the butter.
Then it's more mixing.
It's like you're grabbing it like a crocodile.
Now add buttermilk.
It's all squidgy, like monster hands.
Now flatten it out and cut out the shapes.
I went for this shape because it's more rock star themed.
It's more dazzling.
Then pop them on a tray.
Finally, brush them with buttermilk, add cheese
and pop them in the oven for...
At the recording studio, the gang are about to
record the song they're making for my party.
Ready, watch him, watch him, ready.
# Now, I'm writing silly, our sister's called Tilly. #
# She came here.... we're on holiday. #
It's going to be tough because this lot just can't be serious.
I'm sorry. Someone can't read.
I hope they can pull it together.
I need an extra ingredient,
so I'm going to have to interrupt the masterpiece.
Could you get me some cocoa powder, please?
Cocoa powder. Yeah, sure. And we'll see you later.
-Goodbye, Miss Sassy.
-See you in a minute.
While they get back to the song,
I'm getting back to my savoury biscuits.
Wow, definitely looking amazing.
This is the fun bit. I'm going to give them a pop star look.
Cut stars from the cheese and ham.
I suppose it's going to be a bit...
These look so super.
I've got to get them on my blog.
Just in time, the guys are back with my cocoa.
Now I'm ready to make my...
The brilliant thing about brownies is you can make them
your very own by putting whatever you like inside.
I'm adding sour cherries for an extra kick.
This will make it really nice and fluffy.
First, cream some butter...
Now it's melted dark chocolate...
I'm pretty sure Jack's going to love these.
I might be doing a lot more tasting of the chocolaty things, you know,
Add vanilla extract,
then flour, cocoa powder,
a small pinch of salt...
and five eggs.
This is going to be an eggcellent recipe.
I absolutely love brownies.
And they are so easy to make.
Fold in the sour cherries, then pop in a baking dish
lined with grease-proof paper.
Thick and sticky is perfect.
I dropped it down my leg and down my skirt.
When you've glooped it all in, pop the mixture into the oven for...
While that's in there, I'll clean the kitchen up.
And, as there's a lot to get ready, everyone is helping out.
Well, everyone except Jack.
I'm nearly ready for my pop party.
Mmm. It smells delicious.
Something smells really good.
This is the finishing touch - the decorations.
Sprinkly stars and my favourite...
Here they call it Pop Rocks.
Perfect for my pop-rock party.
That's my poptastic feast ready.
I hope it hits the right notes.
Finally, the guys have arrived.
OK, I'm hungry, Tilly.
These are the barbecued ribs.
Oh, look at those.
These are savoury biscuits.
Cooked to perfection. Well done, Titch.
I like the ribs. The barbecue sauce was really good.
It's like a drumstick.
Tilly, these biscuits are really good.
Dive into my super-duper pop-power brownies.
Soft, sour and beautiful.
Everyone loves my brownies.
Even Mum can't resist them.
Goodness, what chaos.
-How was it?
Jack, Holly, Elspeth, we've got something to show Tilly.
This song is dedicated to Matilda.
That one right there.
It's time to hand over the mic to you guys.
# I'm a Barbie girl in a Barbie world. #
She should stay in the kitchen
and leave the singing to us, to be honest.
I love you, Ken!
Good job, girls!
After a day in the kitchen,
I love a foodie chat with Dad.
But he's at work so I'm video calling him.
Did you see the photo I sent you of the sticky ribs?
Those ribs looked delicious.
They looked like they were falling off the bone.
It's sort of like traditional English scones,
but over here, they call them biscuits.
They were in star shapes with star ham and star cheese.
Wow, wow, wow. That's nice.
What did you do for dessert?
You're turning out to be bit of a...
Dad, I've got one more question.
If you're doing karaoke, do you have to be a good singer?
The good news about karaoke is that you can be the worst singer
-in the world...
-Yes, that's what I was thinking.
But you can still have fun with it.
-Do you know when they invented karaoke machines?
After they heard Mummy singing.
You can't talk.
Big kiss. Mwah.
Love you. Bye, darling.
Phew! We managed to do without any boyfriend talk today.
-MUM AND DAD:
ALL: Goodnight, Mum and Dad. Love you.
ALL: Tilly! Please!
