Cooking with Whitney

I haven't done a Cooking with Whitney post in a while, but I was just so proud of what I made last night that I can't help it!!! I made fried chicken and spaghetti squash! It was my first time for making both of those things, and they turned out GREAT! I have a habit of not following ONE recipe, but looking at a couple of recipes and combining things I like from all of them. So since Saturday I've been looking at a couple fried chicken recipes, and last night I put them all together and made the best fried chicken I've ever had! Actually to be honest it was a little too salty for me, but I practically drenched them in bbq sauce so the saltiness didn't matter too much, and Aaron loves salty so it all turned out ok! :) And they were also such beautiful pieces of fried chicken that I just had to take a picture!

I also made spaghetti squash! I love butternut squash and pretty much every vegetable, so this fall I was determined to make spaghetti squash for some reason. I was a little nervous, but I researched enough and just decided to go basic and not try anything too extravagant. So I just baked it in the oven, and then added butter and salt and pepper. Yumyumyum!!!!!

P.S. If anyone wants the fried chicken recipe, I can direct you to the main one I used, but I definitely got into the "mad scientist" mode when adding the spices....so just follow this recipe and get crazy!!!
