Cooking Waffles and using TikTok!

Making Waffles for Breakfast

For my learning project this project this week I decide to make breakfast. I planned to make waffles, eggs, bacon, and hash browns for my family. First I began to gather the ingredients to make waffles. Here is the ingredients I used:

1 egg

2 Cups of Bisquick Mix

1 Cup of Milk

2 tbsp of vegetable oil

I then repeated that recipe twice to make enough food for my family. After I mixed the batter, I poured it into my waffle iron. While the waffles were cooking I began cooking, eggs and hash browns on the stove. Then I served the finished food setting out syrup, whipped cream, ketchup, and chocolate milk.


Overall I think my meal turned out well! My family enjoyed the breakfast and I didn’t have much trouble making the recipe other than I got a couple egg shells in the bowl that I then needed to pick out. My biggest challenge was cleaning up afterward as the mix made a mess and I had lots of dishes to wash. It was good to switch things up and cook something I can eat in the morning! I believe I need to continue to progress to more difficult foods each week. I am very happy with how this meal turned out and I can’t wait to try something new next week!

Using TikTok as an educational Tool

TikTok is an app that allows users to post short videos that are up to a minute long. It is a tool that allows content creators to gain followers, follow other interesting creators, and discover new things. This was my first time posting on TikTok so it was a learning experience for myself. I began with recording short video clips of myself cooking. I then uploaded all the clips to the TikTok app on my phone and began trimming them to the length I wanted. Then I began adding text to each clip explaining what I was doing. After that I found a feature where I could add a voice to read the text on my slides. I applied this to feature to my first slide to introduce what my video was about. Lastly, I added catchy background music to make my video more appealing. Here is the link to my video:

Pros and Cons of using TikTok for education:

TikTok is a great app to create and share videos with other people. It is free, easy to use, and allows students to create videos that can quickly share information. You can interact with others, learn new skills, and get creative with your videos. Some features TikTok has are the ability to choose background music, text fonts and colours, transitions between clips, and different stickers. Some of the negatives of using TikTok as an educational tool are that you are limited on how long a video can be, some inappropriate content is posted, and it is easy to get distracted watching other people’s videos! TikTok could be used as an educational tool to post a quick summary of a book, quick facts about a topic, or to show someone how to do/make something (like I did in my video). On the SAMR model I believe using TikTok would fall under Modification, as the app can be used to create creative videos that require research, finding images/videos, and summarizing important facts/ideas. Using TikTok was a fun learning experience for me! The platform is fairly new and I had little experience using it. I believe TikTok would be a great resource to use in the classroom as it would encourage students to be creative!

  1. Hi Jeron!
    I love that you included a picture of yourself with the waffles. They look delicious! I agree with your view on TikTok— it’s seen as a unhealthy community, but I think that it has a lot of benefits. It’s quite confusing at first but once you get the hang of it, you can basically do anything you want! Thanks for sharing, can’t wait to see more cooking blogs!

  2. This is awesome that your cooking skills are getting pretty good and its cool that you are including a picture of yourself with your meal that you finished creating. I found your post very interesting as to how you used TikTok to document your progress of making your breakfast. I like how you mentioned in your post the pros and cons to using TikTok in education. In class when our instructor was teaching the many educational ways to use TikTok I was hesitant with the app as I am not one for TikTok. However, thank you for sharing your progress in your learning project and good luck in your cooking and the weeks ahead!

  3. What a fun and valuable learning project idea! I love that you posted to Tik Tok! I have never posted there so I found that post particularly interesting! I was happy to see you made hamburgers from scratch, using ground beef rather than cooking frozen patties- the homemade ones ALWAYS taste way better! I have a friend combines ground pork with her ground beef and then adds milk as ways to add flavour to her homemade hamburgers! Did you bbq them? I prefer bbq, not just because of the flavour, but because the clean up is easier! I actually hate making waffles/ pancakes because of the mess! Well done! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Awesome post Jeron. I loved your Tik Tok Video! I watched it with my three-year-old son Bodhi and he jumped up and down in excitement when he was watching the waffles being poured, and he liked dancing to the music too 🙂

  5. Hey Jeron,
    It is so cool that you used Tiktok to document your progress. Those waffles looked amazing, and I loved watching your process unfold. I completely agree with the negatives listed about using TikTok (especially the one about inappropriate content). I know that you can choose to not be “interested” in certain videos, but there is not a section on TikTok where an individual can personalize what they would like on their feed, such as food, education, etc. I definitely see the positives of using TikTok in the classroom but could see even greater potential if the company decides to one day create a personalized feed option.
