Tonight is the first night of the Passover Holiday which celebrates the exodus from Egypt and a life of slavery. Here's a wikipedia link if you want to learn more.

As in most celebrations, family and food are of #1 importance. I've been cooking since Thursday!! The aroma since then has been amazing. Here's our menu

Gefilte Fish with beet horseradish (don't ask me to describe this one, it's very traditional and an acquired taste!!)
Chopped liver with sautee'd onions
Homemade turkey soup w/veggies and matzoh balls
Brisket
Sweet & Sour chicken
Potatoe Kugel
Apple Kugel
Butternut Squash in a honey orange sauce
Fresh fruit and brownies for dessert

Oh yes, and lots of wine!!

Since we don't use rising flour/yeast during this holiday...we use eggs, lots of eggs, I'd say about 5 dozen so far. Each "baked" item uses close to 7/8 eggs. Can you say....Hello Cholesterol!!

Neat. I went to a friends house once for a "seder meal".

Question, you cant use yeast, but can you use baking soda?

edit: Oh yeah, Happy Passover!

I'm no authority, and I don't know about the baking soda, but you can use baking powder.
