Ayesha Curry’s New Magazine Sweet July Is Just the Reading Material You Need To Get Through Quarantine

If you’re looking for the perfect quarantine magazine, we may have just found it. In April, celebrity chef and restaurant owner, Ayesha Curry, wife of NBA superstar Stephen Curry, released the very first issue of her new magazine called Sweet July

As Ayesha explained, she chose to call the rag Sweet July because “all three of our babies were born in July, we got married in July and it’s the 7th month in the calendar year,” the mom of three explained on Instagram. “It’s the time in my life where I find I have the most joy and excitement. I wanted to carry that through every day and simply honor and find gratitude in the big and the small moments.”

If you’re like me, you’re looking for any glimmer of light or joy in the world right now to help get you through these unforeseen strange times. Last fall, I was offered the opportunity to create my own magazine. Besides it having a cover and pages and pictures, I was given the blank slate to make it whatever I wanted. After a lot of thought and self-reflection, I decided that what I wanted was to tell stories with substance about things that matter. Showcase people doing groundbreaking things and supporting their communities. Give people information but also inspiration. I wanted my girls to be able to see themselves in the pictures and the stories, and feel like not only is there a place for them in this world, but that the skies the limit for what they can achieve. And then the craziest thing happened.. We made it! And we called it SWEET JULY. Why? Well, all three of our babies were born in July, we got married in July and it’s the 7th month in the calendar year. It’s the time in my life where I find I have the most joy and excitement. I wanted to carry that through everyday and simply honor and find gratitude in the big and the small moments. As we prepare to release the first issue in what could be seen as the most insane time, I’m choosing to see it another way. I think the world needs a little joy right now, and this first issue is dripping with it. To celebrate (and to pay homage to one of the greatest scenes in movie history), I enlisted the family to make a little home video. Shot and edited by my bro @jazmiyagi (or as my kids call him “Uncle Jaz”). Initially this was supposed to launch under much different circumstances. It’s only fair to rename this: “THE DEVIL WEARS SWEATPANTS”  SWEET JULY COMING SOON!!!! @meredithcorporation

So now you’re probably wondering why Sweet July is the best magazine to get you through this quarantine? Well, not only does it come with gorgeous photos of her family, personal conversations with her husband and their three children, and profound anecdotes from her mother, mother-in-law, as well as other inspiring figures, but as Ayesha put it herself, it’s “basically a mini-cookbook.”

And she’s not wrong. Mamas Uncut went through and counted every recipe the celeb chef shared within the first issue of her magazine and there are a total of 21 recipes. 

And with much of the world still under stay-at-home orders, meaning we are all cooking multiple meals each day, half of that battle is figuring out what to make. 

And Sweet July helps eliminate that issue! Now all that’s left to do is follow the step-by-step recipe and you have at least 20 new recipes that are sure to wow your quarantine crew!

The recipes include the most savory-looking dinners and breakfasts and go as far as tasty drinks and the sweetest desserts.

And if you follow Sweet July’s Instagram page, Ayesha even created a shopping list for some of the recipes found in the magazine and also plans on creating videos showing fans how to perfectly execute the recipes as she does. We mean, the hardest parts have already been done for you! How great is that?

Words of wisdom from Ayesha’s mom.

Along with recipes, the magazine also includes a one of a kind column from Ayesha’s mother, Carol Alexander. This particular column talks about her decision to walk away from her 32-year marriage as well as the business she devoted her life to at the age of 56 years old, and all of the feelings that led up to making such a big decision for herself.

So if you’re looking for a magazine that is unlike any other magazine, one that is filled with real-life circumstances and worthwhile information, we recommend ordering or picking up the first-ever issue of Sweet July with your next grocery order.
