This year our Sedder is at our sons new home which luckly is just down the road from us.  I've been asked to make the usual brisket, potatoes and never fail matza balls (with out the soup...they don't like powdered soup).  DIL's mom and grandmother are filling in the rest.  I've decided that I'll make some deserts also.  A mousse and probably peanutbutter balls (in which I got great help and tips from Retro Rose now I'll have the confidence to try them again.)
What are you making?  Any new recipes or new variations out there?  Passover is always a challenge that I love.

I made like 40 gallons of matzo ball soup, of course. And I made a really good cheesecake this year. I used ground macaroons and margarine for the crust. It was amazing. Usually I make a flourless chocolate cake, but the cheesecake was WAY better.

Passover is a Jewish holiday right?  I'm not familiar with Jewish traditions.  Also, what exactly does Kosher mean?  I've always wondered.  The extent of my Jewish knowledge I can credit to the Rugrats and the Nanny.  So vast eh?  lol.

I so apologize for not responding sooner.  It has been one heck of a few weeks.
Everything changed at the last minute for our Seder night.  The place was changed to my DIL's parents house and I didn't bring a dessert in the end.  I couldn't find KFP peanut butter so I passed on that this holiday.  The day after the Seder my DD and her fiance came for the rest of the week so I made gallons of matzo ball soup and lots of desserts (he loves sweets).  I made chocolate tri mousse.  Chocolate and matzo meal "loafs".  Nutella ice cream.  Cheese cake (no bake with a KFP cookie crust). Chocolate cakes.  Can you tell that we like chocolate?   Lots of breaded chicken breasts.  Lots of potatoes in different forms.  We even had a barbecue one of the days when my other son came for a visit with his fiance.  Lots' and lots of food in short.  Barbieeee,  that crust sounds Delicious!

LordVader,  yes Passover is a Jewish holiday.  It is a week long and is basically celebrating the Jews freedom from slavery in Egypt.  We refrain from eating anything "leavened" during this time to show our solidarity with the Jews that had to leave Egypt without waiting for their bread to rise.  Passover is different things to different people. As for what does Kosher mean.  I am extremely unqualified to explain that one. I don't keep strick Kosher but do try to adhere to the Kashrot laws on Passover. Gosh, I had to google Rugrats and the Nanny so guess who's knowledge is vast. lol.
I hope that everyone had a wonderful and easy Passover and thank you for commenting.
