eggnog latte

Fans of Starbucks’ eggnog lattes don’t have to fret any longer: after hearing from many customers who were unhappy that Starbucks dropped the holiday beverage, they’re trying to make amends. USA Today reports that Starbucks spokeswoman Linda Mills said, “We made a mistake. We are very sorry.”

They’re aiming to have eggnog lattes back in all stores by November 17. They just have to get enough eggnog from suppliers.

Whew. National crisis averted.

Remember when we posted about that Christmas dinner in a can known as the Christmas Tinner?

Well, it turns out it actually exists and YouTuber Steviejacko actually made a video reviewing it. The seller also tweeted that the cans are sold out.

charlie brown cake 1

A Charlie Brown Christmas is one of my favorite holiday shows to watch, and I’m sure I’m not alone. Nerdache Cakes watches the special with her family every year, and she made this festive cake for their holiday party. It’s too cute for words, and the characters look just like they do in the cartoon! From the baker:

Chuck himself is a mixture of Fondant/Modeling Chocolate and Snoopy’s dog house is chocolate-cocoa cake with vanilla cream frosting. The miserable tree is wire and fondant. All the black accents were painted on. Took about 2 days all together!

Yum.

See more photos of the heart-warming cake after the break.

Aw, romance is all the sweeter for involving a little bacon. This GIF playing on the movie Love Actually was created by Denny’s and it might be the most romantic thing you see this Christmas. Behold, the lowly bacon professing his love for the lovely egg. Stupid egg. Who would turn down bacon?

sriracha candy cane cookies plate

Sriracha, also known as “Rooster Sauce,” also known as “Hot Cock,” is the beloved hot sauce that has become a restaurant staple right there next to good ol’ ketchup and those lousy communal salt and pepper shakers.

The sauce is both revered and reviled, the latter mostly by Irwindale, California residents who have complained about the spicy pollution from a nearby plant destroying their dear community. The halt to Sriracha production has led fans to rush to the markets and clear out the shelves.

The red bottle with the little green cap is filled with a thick elixir, tangy from vinegar, sweet from sugar and aromatic from peppers making it firey hot and hard to resist. It is poured on everything from noodles, to pizza to fried chicken. Here, I’ve done one better for you.

Tis the season for joy, happiness and hot sauce. I’ve taken the old fashioned candy cane sugar cookie and well, twisted it. Literally. While it looks the same I’ve replaced the normally cool, sweet, peppermint flavor and with burning hot Sriracha. Oh, the cookie is still sweet, but that pungent flavor stakes its claim through and through. If you’re a fan of Sriracha, these are the holiday cookies for you.

black pepper bacon garland

If you’ve ever thought to yourself, “You know what my Christmas tree needs? MORE BACON,” then I have a solution for you – a Christmas garland made out of crispy, peppery bacon!

Just like the nostalgic paper rings you used to make as crafts when you were a kid, in this case I’ve substituted everyone’s favorite cured pork product.

The process is much the same, loop the strips of bacon into one another to form a chain. Here I’ve secured them with toothpicks while in the oven. You’re welcome to leave the toothpicks in to make the garland more punk rock, but getting rid of the spikes makes it much more festive.
