Road trip to Yuba and Sutter counties. How many times in the past had I driven by Stephen's Farmhouse and said to myself, "Stop! See what it's all about!" Simply apply the brakes. Recently, I zoomed by and just as quickly did an almost legal u-turn back to their driveway. The sign declaring "Homemade Pies" taunted me. This should have been my first clue that Stephen's Farmhouse and I would soon be (feasting) fast friends.
Why had I waited so long? Fresh cookies, cherry tarts, jams and jellies, and (yes) homemade pies. All kinds of pickled this and that including pickles, green beans, carrots, and more. The seasonal strawberry pie is a work of art. And customized cookies for your special occasion, too. I opted to sample ginger and snickerdoodle cookies and a lovely cornbread muffin. Note to self: The cinnamon buns on the counter looked luscious. There wasn't enough time to do more damage, but no question I'll allow lots more time on my next visit.
P.S. Your canine friends will love Stephen's Farmhouse dog treats, too.
