“When I was growing up, eating together as a family was the easiest way to open the lines of communication. It was where we had our best and worst conversations,” says Curry, who has four siblings. “I feel that’s being lost today with a lot of families because everybody’s on the go. I get that people can’t do it every night, but even once a week it’s important to unplug and catch up with each other.” 
In addition to providing traditional recipes for the novice cook, The Seasoned Life documents Curry’s exciting journey as a wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend. “This feel-good book shares my childhood, how I met my husband and how everything I experience involves food,” she says. She even peppers the pages with at-home how-tos, such as the way to create fragrant body scrubs using kitchen staples or items in your pantry.
