Yosef Silver is the blogger behind This American Bite, a relatively new blog devoted to healthy seasonal recipes.

Tell us about your blog and how you got started:

I’ve been blogging since September of last year, and I started to record my own recipes and dishes – more often than not I make it up as I go along and had no record of how to recreate the finished project.  I’m not new to blogging, just to food-blogging, so this seemed like a logical next step.

What is your earliest cooking memory?

My whole life has been food-centric.  Even being raised by a single parent, my mother would cook for six to eight people every night and people would show up and dine with us!  Breaking the fast after Yom Kippur was always a big family event, and even when we moved to a new city, our home was the destination for the break-fast.

What is your favorite kitchen implement / utensil / gadget?
My Le Creuset cookware. No question about the quality and longevity of these cast iron beautys!
What’s your favorite kosher dish to cook?

I tend to cook different dishes all the time, one of my go-to chicken dishes for Friday Night would have to be Chicken Marbella.  It’s possibly the easiest dish I can make and people always enjoy!

Who is your cooking inspiration?

My mother had a straight forward philosophy – if she was going to raise me to grow up and leave home one day, I needed to know how to cook for myself.  Food reminds us of our parents, grand parents and for the lucky few of us, great grandparents too – it’s our way of connecting the next generation with the people that got us to the point we’re at today.

Please share a favorite cooking tip or trick with our readers:

If making chicken soup with wings, wrap them in cheesecloth to ensure a clear broth
