Boo! Country Living October 2012

Psst. Go buy the latest issue of Country Living magazine, will you? October 2012, to be exact! We wrote, styled, and photographed a feature on indulgent upgrades for candy apples, and yes, it features our spooky apples from a few years back! It was fun to recreate them, but if you want to know my favorite it’s those Triple Dipped S’More Apples. MY NEW FAVE. Buy the magazine for the recipe, it’s on newsstands now and also available for ipads!

Apples waiting for their close-ups; notes, napkins, tables


The set of the spooky apples, in which I used all the same things from the original shot years ago. Call me the Reflection Wranger (all the black curtains help control all the light and reflections).

    So pretty and subdued in that fall kind of way. Beautiful, actually. Love seeing Adam’s styling too. Thanks for the peek behind the magic. :)

    Wow! what an awesome spread in a cool magazine. You must be thrilled, I love the pull backs so thanks for that. Reflections can be tricky and this is a trick I can use in the future

    Does anyone know where to find the awesome glass and brass mugs featured on page 104 of the october 2012 issue? They are shown in the recipe section with “spiked pear cider” in them. They are unusual and I covet them! I emailed the editor with no response.
