This busy diva does not have time for a complicated side dish -- so out of my kitchen came these mashed sweet potatoes and pears. I may never make sweet potatoes any other way ever again.

Ingredients
  • 2 pears, peeled and sliced
  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • ¼ cup water
  • 3 sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
Directions
  1. 1. Place the pears, wine, and water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Turn heat to medium-low and simmer until pears are soft, about 5-10 minutes. Remove pears from wine and reserve.
  2. 2. Place the sweet potatoes into a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and allow to potatoes to steam dry for a minute or two.
  3. 3. Stir the reserved pears, evaporated milk, vanilla, brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, and nutmeg into the sweet potatoes and mash until smooth. Transfer to a serving dish and serve hot.
