Hello again, fellow Creekers.
The Christopher Creek Homeowners Association (CCHA) is having its annual Easter Egg Hunt come April 23.
For those of you not familiar with the CCHA, they produce many of the fine events in the Christopher Creek area and are a real resource to the community. If you’d like to join the already 110-plus members, you are encouraged to do so sending your $20 check to CCHA, 591 W. Columbine Rd., Payson, AZ 85541. Please be sure to include your contact information with the check so you can get the newsletter that comes out periodically. You can also visit the CCHA Web site at: http://christophercreekhoa. wordpress.com.
I’d like to introduce everyone to Jeremy Cox who owns and operates the Christopher Creek Spice Company.
His grandparents have a cabin in Christopher Creek with the original recipe started by his grandfather. Any time they were in Christopher Creek, it was a tradition that they had their family’s famous chili. Jeremy’s dad originally had named the meal Larry’s Cabin Chili.
Since that time, Jeremy has added additional chili products, spices and rubs, which are all his creation. Looks like great cooking runs in the family! It is evident that Jeremy’s passion is cooking and coming up with the best recipes he can. In his words “I just love cooking.”
Jeremy had his first sale in October 2007 and since then this has become his full-time job. Jeremy is an example of yet another successful business started during the Great Recession. Jeremy said “with folks trying to support the local economy and eat home more, business has been great.”
Christopher Creek Cabin Chili can be bought locally in Payson at Charlie’s Old Fashioned Sausage and in Christopher Creek at the Tall Pines Market. For those folks in the Valley, you can find his great products at AJ’s Fine Foods. You can also get more information and purchase online at www.CabinChili.com.
As always, I do need your help with content and stories! For anyone wanting to submit information from the Christopher Creek area for inclusion in our weekly article, please e-mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Any submitted pictures must be full-size (typically around 1MB per picture). The cutoff time for inclusion in Friday’s article is close of business on Monday.
Thanks again for reading the column.
