1. Multilayered Dip
Proudness Level: OVER 9,000!
Why? Those layers just didn't appear like that. But you did it. Now dig in!
Proudness Level: Almost to the point of smugness.
Why? It's valid because the presentation of bruschetta is very important! It's like making tiny miracles on top of toasted garlic bread! Take a photo before the party gobbles it up! (Because you know they will.)
3. Homemade Soup
Proudness Level: A gold medalist biting into their first-place medal.
Why? Look guys. I MADE SOUP. Not from a can. And look at all the pretty colors.
4. Potato and Broccoli Salad
Proudness Level: The feeling you get when your Instagram likes turn into numbers. OHHH YEAH!
Why? It's really hard to make something so chaotic look so good. Here's a salad for champions.
5. Deviled Eggs
Proudness Level: Singing an entire karaoke song without looking at the lyrics.
Why? Look at how elegant — and dare we say devilish — these eggs look. It's all about the tools you use. The piping tip is very important!
Proudness Level: Not preparing for a presentation, but nailing it anyway!
Why? Pasta may be easy to make, but c'mon. It's all about the presentation. Make sure your shot is right above the dish to get all the delicious details. It's also really easy to make bland pasta. But you're definitely not going to do that, right?
7. Chicken Pot Roast
Proudness Level: Prouder than a mom seeing her kid make the dean's list.
Why? Because LOOK. You're a grown adult now. Love, sweat, and tears went into this meal.
8. Shrimp Tacos
Proudness Level: When your boss actually acknowledges when you do a good job.
Why? Because everyone can think of making beef tacos, but you? You make shrimp ones. How's that for something new? Cheers to you.
Proudness Level: The highest of high-fives!
Why? Making sushi is an art and science. They are perfectly crafted rolls of exquisite flavor waiting to be dipped in soy sauce and then eaten. Show the world your pride and joy before they get devoured into the belly of the beast.
