Greek Souvlaki Dressing
This dressing is great and serves more than four salads. Like others said it is oily, so I think it would be best lightly dressing a salad not drowning it. I don't think I would change the amount of oil just use less on the salad. I served on romaine lettuce with kalamata olives, feta cheese, tomatoes, red onion, and carrots. I didn't have dry mustard so I used yellow mustard instead. I needed it right away so we couldn't wait two hours - it was delightful. This is a keeper!

Sweet Potato Casserole VI
Everyone's favorite dish at Thanksgiving. It was sweeter than pumpkin pie so I reduced the sugar on the second batch. I used one can of drained yams and used my electric mixer to mash them a little bit. I used a smaller square baking dish. Keeping 4 or 5 whole pecans and placing them like a flower in the center before baking makes it look nice.

Zucchini Cream Pie
I reduced the sugar as others stated and adjusted it for 10 servings because I wanted a thicker pie. I have no idea how others removed seeds from a zucchini - there are hundreds. I skipped seeding unless one looked hard. No one could tell when eating it - smooth as could be. I wish the recipe gave a guideline for how long to cook it. I baked it for at least an hour. A knife never came out clean for me, but I thought it had to be getting done because the crust and top were starting to brown (slightly). After it cooled, it did set up solid. Everyone liked it.
