In 2016, she wrote her national best-seller The Seasoned Life, sharing over 100 of her favorite family recipes, with highlights such as Mama Alexander's Brown Sugar Chicken, Smoked Salmon Scramble, Homemade Granola and Stephen's 5-Ingredient Pasta.

In 2017, Curry launched an eponymous line of cookware and bakeware, which is available at retailers nationwide, with a portion of all proceeds donated to No Kid Hungry. She has since expanded her catalog of products for the home by releasing a line of kitchen textiles, a signature bedding collection, a line of indoor gardening products and jewelry. In spring 2017, Curry released her meal-kit delivery service, "Homemade," featuring family-inspired meals developed by Curry herself, and made available through major retailers.

They have three locations currently open to the public in San Francisco, Hawaii and Houston, with plans to open several more throughout the next few years.
