Octoberfest Roast
Per some of the other comments, made this with a full bottle of dark beer and correspondingly less broth. I used chicken broth since that's what I had on hand. Based on what others have said about the onions, I chose to dice the onions and put them on the bottom of the pot with some finely diced carrots and celery. As the roast cooked, the veggies turned into a terrific gravy with just a hint of sweetness from the onions and the brown sugar. When I make this again, I'll probably be more generous with the mustard glaze - the bite of the mustard makes a nice counterpoint to the slightly sweet gravy. I think I'll also brush on additional glaze periodically as the roast cooks. The nutmeg in the glaze is a nice, subtle touch that makes this roast especially good. Wife loved it - said it reminded her of the way her grandma cooked, which is high praise!

Middle Eastern Kibbeh
Excellent recipe; this is one of my favorite ground meat dishes! I make a double batch in a large cake pan, bake it for 35-40 mins and finish with a few minutes under the broiler. The kibbeh freezes very well. It's great topped with toasted pine nuts and a yogurt sauce (either raita or a quick mix of Greek yogurt, minced garlic, and dried dill). I omit the 3 tbs olive oil - it's plenty moist and flavorful without it. Also, I usually use a combination of meats - 1/3 lamb and 2/3 lean beef is great, and it's hard to tell the difference vs. all lamb.

Too Much Chocolate Cake
Ultimately, this still tastes like a cake-mix cake, but still: it's great. Definitely the best cake we've ever had that started out in a box.
