Very, very tasty and I didn't even have white wine...just used water. It almost had a caramel type taste from the pears. I only used 1/8 c. sugar and 1 tbsp. butter in an attempt to keep the c...

AMAZING! I was very skeptical of this recipe, but had both sweet potatoes and pears that I needed to use and wanted a relatively healthy recipe....WOW! I will add this to my regular routine! ...

I hate the taste of wine in anything. I substituted apple juice for the wine and it was beyond wonderful. A wonderful Thanksgiving addition. It was gone in seconds.

I had pears that needed to be used and found this recipe. The pears and sweet potatoes are a great combination and for that I'm giving 4 stars. My objection is there is no need for any sugar and...

I hate reviewing recipes I've altered, but I only altered because of a lack of ingredients. I couldn't find pears at the store (I guess they're out of season?), so I used gala apples I had at ho...

Amazing! Loved it, this will be served frequently this winter! Thank you
