Admittedly, the thick, sometimes boozy drink can be a polarizing one. But love it or hate it, there’s no denying that eggnog is one holiday treat that’s here to stay — so I say embrace it!

This sophisticated Orange Nog, complete with a whipped egg yolk dollop on top, looks super classy does it not?

My N°005 Spiced Orange Nog brings all the birds to the yard. – To make awkward eye contact through the window. – This ridiculously indulgent #holiday beverage features @teroforma’s 1Pt N°005 Cinnamon Spice Blend, which I used to infuse some zing into a dark #rum. Teroforma’s sleek 1pt infusion bottle makes this process so easy (not to mention so damned good looking). Then I threw in all the usual noggy suspects: eggs, milk, cream, sugar, plus orange zest and orange #liqueur, all topped with a zested whipped dollop of egg whites. Head over to the blog for the full recipe and to see why I think you should be giving these infusion kits to everyone on your #holiday list this year. DO IT. Thank me later. #sponsored . #drinkingwithchickens #teroforma #onepart #1pt #infusion . . . #abmholidayspirit #craftcocktails #gardentoglass #cocktailgarden #imbibe #thirsty #liqpic #eggnog #rumdrinks #thebestdrinkever #happyhour #cocktails #drinks #prettydrinks #food52grams #drinkup #drinkstagram #huffposttaste #buzzfeedanimals #weeklyfluff #chickensofig

Maybe you’d rather just go with something simple, because sometimes store-bought nog is just what you need …

Or you can get more elaborate and pour it into your favorite festive glass:

You can always switch it up and turn your nog into a latte.

Or a cocktail!

Can’t go wrong with your #bestfriend #eggnog #martinis and #bbqchicken #nachos and ending it with #turtlecheesecake

Or even cupcakes!


Whether you love eggnog or think you hate it, there’s a good chance you’ll be a believer after you try a really good one. From the traditional fluffy stuff to a vegan or orange-flavored version and even a couple eggnog-inspired desserts, you might just find something delicious in this recipe list.

Can You Resist These 16 Luscious Brownie GIFs?


By Cooking Panda

I love brownies so much, I should just marry them!

Brownies are just the freaking best, am I right?

The rich, chocolaty, densely cakey dessert is just perfection — in any form.

Even the batter is heaven.

Pro-tip: Add a couple spoonfuls of black coffee to your batter for a subtle yet deeply complex flavor hint. You can thank me later.

Tell the truth: how badly do you want to lick this spoon right now?

Or do you have way more self-control than me and you’ll wait until it’s fully cooked to have your bite? I applaud that, I really do.

Enjoy this delightful downpour of snowy powdered sugar for your troubles!

That’s right! Pile that stuff on!

I’ll even take them in molten mug form …

Because brownie goo is the best kind of goo.

Especially when you top it with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Or a big drizzle of caramel, because obviously!

And don’t you dare forget about the brownie’s sexy, scrumptious cousin, the buttery, vanilla blondie.


Whatever form you prefer — enjoy!

Thanksgiving GIFs: Eat All The Food!


By Cooking Panda

Happy Thanksgiving, friends!

Turkey Day is finally upon us, and it’s time to have a little fun.

So go ahead celebrate the big day by relaxing with your loved ones, watching football and eating a ton of delicious food!

Like mashed potatoes …

So tasty!

And stuffing, or dressing — whatever you prefer to call it.

Whether you like it crammed inside of your bird …

Or served on the side in a neat little dish …

I think we can all agree that it’s delicious either way!

The veggies are pretty nice too …

Make sure to balance out your greens with some lovely carbs!

Like mac and cheese …

I mean really, does it get any more scrumptious than gooey, creamy cheese sauce and chewy little noodles?

I think not!

And don’t forget about the turkey!

Or the ham, if that’s more your thing.

A turducken, maybe?

Whatever your spread looks like, there’s one crucial thing that really ties it all together: gravy!

Smother everything in it!

If you think you have enough, you can still probably use more!

Douse it!

Wash it all down with a nice bubbly cocktail, if you’re in the mood.

Make sure to save some room for dessert!

It’s all about the pie.

Pumpkin, apple, pecan, it’s all good!

Or maybe all of the above?

Have it all! Calories don’t count on Thanksgiving.

Looks good, doesn’t it?

Go ahead, fill up your bowl.

There’s plenty to go around. 

Here, have another scoop.

Mmm … so good …

From savory and meaty to spicy and veggie-packed, even sweet, I love them all. I don’t have a type!

Don’t forget the toppings!

It’s all about the sturdy, crusty bread for optimal dipping.

And maybe a big hunk of creamy, chunky avocado to really tantalize your taste buds.

Of course, a few sprinkles of crunchy stuff never hurts.

Help yourself to seconds…

 And maybe thirds.

The Beauty Of Halloween Candy In 13 GIFs


By Cooking Panda

I hope you got a good candy haul this Halloween!

You’ve done the hard work, going door to door and begging for sweets.

Now it’s time to enjoy it by inducing a sugary food coma for days!

DAYS! Maybe even WEEKS if you have self control and scored big!

If you were lucky, you might have even landed some coveted king-sized chocolate bars or your favorite chewy fruity treats.

And then you have these delightful rainbow jelly beans, which just never go out of style. Is anyone willing to trade me for buttered popcorn and pear?

Congratulations to anyone who hit the jackpot and somehow ended up with these fancy chocolates, even if that means you grabbed them yourself from the store.

And of course, sour gummies are a sleeper favorite for some — if you’re into that sort of stuff.

Maybe you got a pile of Dum Dums, which maybe aren’t the most popular, but they are still a solid and delicious option — probably the best hard candy.

I just hope you didn’t end up with mountains of this controversial stuff — unless like me you happen to love the waxy, creamy sweet kernels.

I’d be happy to trade you for your candy corn.

The post-Halloween candy bartering is all about complementing different tastes, after all.

Whatever your favorite candies are, I hope you enjoy the sugar rush!

Who even needs sandwiches when you can smother your hot dog with mountains of pastrami and pickles?

Can You Smell These 14 Tasty Pie GIFs?


By Cooking Panda

One of the best things about fall is that you get to bake a ton of seasonal pies, breathe in their beautiful aromas, and gobble them all down.

Whether you prefer your pumpkin pie warm or chilled, you can’t beat the irresistible nutmeg, cinnamon and starchy pumpkin smell that wafts through the house when one of these babies comes out of the oven …

Maybe you’d prefer something a little more jazzed up. Will pumpkin-pecan-chocolate do the trick for you?

Because I know I could never turn down a pie this lovely, especially when those sugary, buttery, nutty scents reach my nostrils.

Or maybe this heavenly slice of caramel dreams is up your alley. I’ll take one of those too, please!

Naturally, I’m going to need a slice or two of America’s favorite pie to accompany it, because creamy, buttery caramel and cinnamony, tender baked Granny Smith apples topped with that golden, flaky lattice crust are destined to be together.

Inhale. Drool. Sigh longingly. Repeat.

Mini pies are great too, because that means you get a whole one to yourself!

Plus, look how adorable they are!

All I know is that it’s time to wolf one of these bad boys down.

And one of these too, for good measure.

Go on, have a bite …

Or several!

Now that’s what I’m talking about!

If you’re looking for the perfect cold weather pick-me-up, you can’t do much better than a piping hot cuppa.

Prepared just the way you like it, of course.

My throat feels soothed just looking at this stuff.

14 Soup Dumpling GIFs You Won’t Be Able To Resist

Ever had the heaven-in-a-basket that is Xiao Long Bao, aka soup dumplings?

If you haven’t, you are seriously missing out on the warm, chewy, broth-filled delights. 

And you must fix this by eating a bunch of them immediately — or maybe just one giant one, jiggly with the warm broth that awaits you.

First, you carefully puncture the top with your straw, to cool it down and suck out some of the juices.

And then you go to town!

This is wrong on sooo many levels, but doesn’t it look like utter perfection? Imagine this happening in your mouth!

Does this gorgeous foodporn make you furious?

I don’t know about you, but I could sure use a cocktail right about now.

It’s warm out there, and there’s nothing that refreshes and cools you off on a summer day like a big fruity boozy drink!

Preferably something pink, sweet and poured over ice …

Or maybe something frozen and blended, I’ll take that too.

But you know what? I’m not picky! I could also go for something simple and strong, like this classic martini:

Or even something bubbly …

Now I don’t know what to pick. Everything looks so good!

Because these gorgeous strawberry drinks look stunning and tasty:

But then again, the way that this sour froths up on top is just too lovely to resist.

These 16 Popsicle GIFs Are Sure To Cool You Off

Few things call to me the way icy cold popsicles do on hot summer days.

For kids and adults alike, the cool, refreshing treat sometimes feels like the only thing that can cool you down on a sweltering afternoon.

Well, that and taking a dip in the pool.

Mr. Cooking Panda is a popsicle fiend! An absolute FIEND!

This is definitely one childhood treat that never got old!


And the jokes! Gotta love the punch lines that are revealed when you finish your popsicle.

For example, Why didn’t the hockey player want to pay for dinner?

He was a cheapskate!

OHOHOHOHOHO!!!! Just me? Ok then.

Why is it so satisfying to watch this gorgeous watermelon pop reverse melt?

I don’t know what this chocolate-dipped creation is. I just know that I need it in my life.

Reward Yourself With These 15 Decadent Cheesecake GIFs


By Cooking Panda

You’ve worked hard! I think it’s time to kick back and indulge with a mid-week treat.

How about a decadent slice of dense, fluffy, velvety cheesecake?

Drizzled with your favorite topping, of course.

And piled high with whatever you’re craving!

How could you not want to bite into that rich, moist filling and crispy, buttery graham cracker crust?

Of course, crustless is delicious too.

Really any form of cheesecake is a complete mouth party.

I love the really dense kind that gets ever-so-slightly browned on top and it just a little bit tart. 

But if you’re more into the sweet vanilla custard type, I can’t fault you for that.

Nor can I judge you if you prefer the super-loaded chocolate madness cheesecakes.

I’ll certainly give you a pass if we have different tastes.


In fact, that’s even better.

Because that means I get more of the kind I like.

And you get more of the kind you like.

And since I don’t see any slices there, you should probably just eat the whole thing.

15 GIFs That Prove Chocolate Is The Best Thing Ever


By Cooking Panda

Sometimes when you’re craving dessert, there’s only one thing that will do — a big hunk of pure chocolate goodness.

It’s just exactly what you need sometimes.

Plus, it wards off Dementors, so that’s always a plus.

Vanilla? nah!

I mean, vanilla is pretty nice, but can you really do any better than a gorgeous ball of chocolate? I think not!

It’s basically a fact.

Because LOOK:

Plus, chocolate is totally “healthy.”

A cookie a day keeps the doctor away, I think they say.

Something like that, anyway …

What’s the best way to make hazelnuts better? Dunk them in chocolate. OBVIOUSLY.

Maybe you just want a straight up slab of chocolate. I can respect that.

Or perhaps you’d like to melt it down and dunk stuff in it. It’s all good.

Because don’t forget that WONDERFUL things happen with melted chocolate.

Whatever your preferred form is — milk, dark or even (gasp) white, enjoy your chocolate!

Enjoy This Virtual Fourth Of July Barbecue In 29 GIFs


By Cooking Panda

Are you ready to have an epic Fourth of July party?

Come join me! There’s room in the pool for everyone.

You’ll feel much better after you take a dip and cool off a little.

Wow, you really worked up an appetite! Why don’t you grab a drink while I get the food all set up.

What would you like? An ice cold cocktail?

There’s soda too — good ol’ fashioned American cola, if that’s more your thing.

Or some rich, fruity sangria — help yourself.

Maybe you’d rather have this fizzy blackberry and rosemary number? We have plenty.


Make sure you grab some snacks while you’re at it, too.

Get some warm dip before everybody eats it all!

There’s pleasantly refreshing watermelon — a staple for any barbecue!

And who can forget about these juicy, festive berries for something a little sweet to balance out all the salty food?

Ready for the main course? We have piles and piles of tender, grilled meat for you.

Perfectly seasoned, well-marbled and gorgeously charred — want some?

Like any good ‘Murican celebrating ‘Murica, we have hot dogs too, and you know how much better they are grilled.

Throw some wings on your plate while you’re at it. They are nice and smoky!

Round out your meal with some flavorful grilled veggies:

The sweet corn on the cob might just steal the show, but that’s ok because we have TONS of it.

And sides — you better leave a little room on your plate for some of my famous slaw.

Plus some potato salad, because what barbecue is complete without the starchy side?

Enjoy! Make sure you get second helpings before all the food disappears.

It’s time for dessert! How about something festive?

Perhaps some cookies too:

And some GORGEOUS, patriotic cupcakes.

Now that the sun is down, it’s time for the best part — the fireworks!

What Fourth of July is complete without the dazzling display in the sky? Grab a good seat and look up.

They are best enjoyed with good company, of course.

Want to make things fruitier? How about some sparkling blueberry lemonade?

Whatever your beverage of choice, make sure to pour yourself a tall glass.

Have a sip!

Drink up and enjoy!

17 Gooey Chocolate Gifs You’ll Want To Swim In


By Cooking Panda

Let’s talk for a second about how amazingly perfect melty, rich chocolate sauce is.

It really is the best, and it makes EVERYTHING better. It’s so good that I could see myself happily drowning in a chocolate river like Augustus Gloop.

I mean, why was everyone so worried? Why did no one anticipate this? If it were me, I’d drink as much chocolate as I could and happily float down the river for the rest of my days.

Then again, I also relate to this bird:

Am I the only one? I mean LOOK how incredible this thick, liquid fudge is. How could you not want to dive straight into that?

Or this chocolate fountain! I’d probably hold either a cup or a giant piece of chocolate under that smooth, delicious curtain of happiness, but this marshmallow/strawberry skewer does look tasty.

or break that up into multiple skewers so that you can have even more fun dipping over and over.

But why stop there? Dunk EVERYTHING into this magical fountain.

Or drizzle it over some ice cream to make the best dessert EVEN BETTER.

Bonus points if it’s warm fudge atop an otherwise frozen sundae, and you get the optimal hot/cold marriage.

Or pour the smooth glaze over a warm cake if you want. I won’t stop you!

Bake it into a cake so that it oozes out oh-so-gloriously when you take a bite.

This person is doing it wrong. That chocolate is supposed to be going into my mouth.

I like to imagine that this person licked their fingers right after this gif. That’s what I would do.

Drizzle chocolate on EVERYTHING.

And of course, I’d never turn it down in liquid form either.

Gooey chocolate is the best chocolate.
