Mashed Sweet Potatoes

In my quest to eat well, the sweet potato is proving to be a daily companion.  Tonight I decided to part from my normal baked sweet potato and made mashed ones. I used this recipe from the food network with 1 change: I cut the amount of sugar and butter in 1/2.  Gotta be healthy
