looks good and looking good.

"It's tasting good"

Never heard all three forms in US, UK, or Canada.

When I see that coworker did something right, I say
"It is loo-o-o-oking goo-o-d".
To the boss "looking good" or "looks good".

Re: looks good and looking good.

'sounding good' sounds EXTREMELY weird.

"tasting good" - very weird, too.

"mmm, the food's smelling good" - I guess, this could be fine in some situations, but quite rarely. Again, "the food SMELLS good" sounds much better.

All continuous forms could be used when you want to sound really emotional.

"Looking good", on the contrary, is used all the time:

"You're looking hot!"
"Wow! You're looking... flourising!"
