Orange Ricotta Sweet Potato Toast + Mountain Home Master Bedroom

Today I’m excited to share our bedroom, here in our mountain home, plus a simple recipe, Orange Ricotta Sweet Potato Toast, a delicious low-carb option.

Have you tried sweet potatoes made into toast? It’s a great gluten-free option for breakfast toasts, or even a delicious appetizer!

Today I’m sharing the basic recipe, with 2 toppings that my daughter made for us. The days are winding down, and we’ll soon be taking her back to college (sniff-sniff). The summer has whirled by, but we are ready for fall.

Who doesn’t love the beauty of fall?

When we downsized our family home, back in Medford, we lost a lot of space in the master bedroom. But we were okay with that, as long as our king-size Reverie bed fit into the room.

We each have our own closet, but they are small, which made me realize that I needed to get rid of at least half of my clothing. Mission accomplished, over a 4 month period.

I feel lighter and I realized that I was holding on to too much stuff. (I used a consignment shop, we had several yard sales before we moved, and then much went to Goodwill.)

Repurposing door for desk

The previous owners left a sweet dresser, and we made space for our repurposed door for office space.

We love the bright open windows and vaulted ceilings. We’re looking for the perfect light fixture, unless we repurpose ths one.

Down the road is a reuse and repurpose shop, with lots of cool stuff. I found an original painting, adding in some plants.

We brought in the book shelves that we didn’t have room for anywhere else in the house, which worked out great. With a small space, move “up,” right? (Go tall.)

Who loves our room more? Haggis us or? :)

Also, do you make your bed every day? I love this article that my friend Melissa wrote, How to Make Your Bed so it Makes Your Day!

Lastly, I went with a white, silver, and gold pillow. The finishing touch.

Orange Ricotta Sweet Potato Toast

With sweet potato and yam season approaching, we love this breakfast trend, substituting sweet potato for toast.

Whatever your favorite spread that you’ve put on toast, now goes onto a thin slice of “toasted” sweet potato.

Here’s how you do it.

You pop a sweet potato slice in the toaster. That’s it. So simple!

Our friends are coming from out of town this weekend, so we can’t wait to whip up a light snack of “sweet potato toast” with almond butter and bananas. But then there’s avocado with a sprinkle of salt and red pepper flakes, or cream cheese with jelly, like you’d put on a bagel.

Here are some other delicious combos:

Goat cheese, pesto, tomato, and fresh cracked salt and pepper

Fresh avocado with fresh cracked salt, pepper, and chili flakes

Ricotta cheese, slice of orange, honey drizzle, and thyme (sweet and savory, yum!)

Wash the potato, slice, toast, and after the third round, take it out and dress it up!

Happy Labor Day Weekend, Friends!
