Because Its Fall

Fall is finally here and even though it doesn’t really feel like it (especially here in miami). I decided to make some turkey chili to cozy up with. So turn up your a/c really cold, snuggle up in your blanket and enjoy this turkey chili!

Turkey Chili


Turkey Chili


  • 2 1/2lbs Ground Turkey
  • 3 tbsp Oil/Butter
  • 2 small Sweet Onions, chopped
  • 4 Garlic Cloves, chopped
  • 2 Chipotle Peppers, chopped
  • 3 oz. Tomato Paste
  • 2 tbsp Chili Powder
  • 1 tbsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tbsp Dried Thyme
  • 1 tbsp Salt
  • 1 tbsp Onion Powder
  • 3/4 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Worcester Sauce
  • 2 14oz can Dice Tomatoes
  • 1/2 bottle of Beer
  • 2 16oz can of Kidney Beans
  • Cilantro (optional toppings)
  • Cheddar Cheese (optional toppings)
  • Sour Cream (optional toppings)


  2. Start off by heating up a large pot to medium/high heat with your oil. I used a dutch oven (essential kitchen item) but any large pot should work. Toss in your onions and garlic. Cook and stir until translucent about 5-7 minutes.
  3. Add in your chipotle, stir around for 1 minute. Add in all your seasonings including the brown sugar and worcester sauce. Cook and stir around for 3 minutes.
  4. Add your tomato paste. Cook and stir for 5 minutes.
  5. Drop in your ground turkey. Use your stirring utensil to break up the meat and stir everything together. Cook until turkey is cooked and crumble like texture. About 5-7 minutes.
  6. Add in your dice tomatoes, beans and beer. Mix real good.
  7. Bring to a boil, cover, turn heat low and simmer for 15 minutes.
  8. Serve with some fresh cilantro, sour cream and cheddar cheese. Enjoy!

*This also freezes well for any leftovers


Hey y’all! Its obviously been awhile since I last posted something. A lot has been going on and some big changes that Im excited to share. Im going to jump straight into it, I MOVED! I packed up and moved to Miami, Florida. I took a whole two months to just focus on moving. And if you know anything about moving then you know its a annoying process. Plus adapting to this change and settling in. My mind been all over the place. I was more focused on getting these “adult” duties done first.

I did take some time to explore and find the good food out here. There is an incredible farmers market out here. I did share a photo on Instagram from there. The produce and food scene out here is pretty impressive. Vegan and Vegetarian dishes are very common. We know I went vegetarian for three months then started eating chicken again. (Click here to read about that!)  I still don’t eat no red meat. Which is tempting not to because the Spanish culture out here along with the Haitians cook with red meat often. Im tapping more in my vegetarian roots seeing its so much vegetarian inspiration. I’ll let you all know if I decided to indulge in some red meat.

Living a mile from the beach is not so bad either. Until a hurricane is on the way. We experienced our first hurricane and had to evacuate. It was interesting to see how everyone reacts and prepare out here. Much different than NC and what you see on tv. But on a normal pretty day. The beach is my ultimate zen spot as well as a place to have a afternoon lunch session. Eating a turkey sandwich with chips, reading a book while sipping wine, while your crystals charge and KoKo rolling in the sand. Is my idea afternoon.

Im happy to announce that Im shifting my blog to a “goddess lifestyle”. No worries, Im still sharing recipes and great places to eat. Its been on my mind a lot to share life tips, self love, advice, all things universe and some things I’ve been through. I feel in this world today we need to still be able to love ourselves and protect our peace. I see a lot of people getting lost in this crazy society. Which is ok, Im out here with a flashlight during the day to find my way sometimes. No one is perfect, remember that! So check out the ‘Goddess‘ tab.

Its been over 2 months and now that Im somewhat settled, I can get back to blogging. I did have time to cook in-between all the hustle and bustle. So Im definitely going to drop a lot of recipes. I do have some items in Shop GG available. Thanks to everyone who still came to my blog to try recipes and reach out to me ask questions or simply say how delicious a recipe was. Means a lot! Stay tuned to my Instagram where I post in-between blog posts and updates on new blog posts!

Fayetteville Pie Co.

I’ve always said simple is the best way and Fayetteville Pie Company obviously agrees to that too. I recently visited this place when I came to Fayetteville, NC to visit my family.

As soon as you walk in, you can smell freshly baked goods! Not to mention the decor gives you a clean homely vibe (you got to see it for yourself). Their concept is putting magical ingredients in delicate flakey pie crust! You can chose from 3 different styles of pie (their menu changes) in 2 categories, Savory or Sweet. Simple but affective, right? Even tho it’s hard to choose which pie you want!

I got the ‘Deep South Dish’. Their fresh homemade pie crust filled with BBQ Chicken, creamy Mac n Cheese and Collard Greens! Topped with a gooey layer of cheese baked to perfection! I over indulged and got the ‘Berry Beloved’! Strawberries, Blueberries, Blackberries and Raspberries combined in perfect harmony. Safe to say today’s lunch will never be forgotten and I can not wait to come back. Make sure to check them out!

P.S. I heard they are opening another spot so be sure to follow them @FayPieCo on Instagram to stay updated!
