Cooking Light's 25th Anniversary Issue

Cooking Light's 25th Anniversary Issue

This November Cooking Light celebrates its 25th anniversary with a double issue that's out on newsstands now.   We spoke with the magazine's creative director Carla Frank about putting together this delectable issue.  

How did you go about choosing the images and recipes that would be on the anniversary cover?
We searched for recipes that looked delicious, but that you could actually make. The dark background was a bit of a departure for us, but I wanted them to look classic and be sure the food popped.  It was an anniversary issue, so taking a little departure was nice.  
In general I want the magazine to be beautiful, vibrant, fun, approachable, and conversational.  I hope that this issue, the culmination of 2 years effort, shows that.
