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!!!


  1. dang girl you are pretty much a gourmet chef these days! that chicken looks fantastic.

  2. Delicious! You are a good cook!

    By the way, did you ever run into Sallie?

  3. that looks amazing! you'll have to let me know what you changed?

  4. Yay, another Cooking with Whitney segment! I liked how you linked the "Cooking with Whitney" to your past segments. Clever. You know my roommate was growing butternut squash and was giving it away the day after you came to visit, since she had a ton and didn't know what to do with it...i think there's still some left..
