Devo’s Dogs: A Marlborough Hot Dog Stand

October 22, 2014 12:04 pm

A father and son team run Devo’s Dogs, a friendly little hotdog stand where you can grab a great meal at a bargain price. It’s operated out of a trailer, so there’s only outdoor seating at this Marlborough eatery. Nonetheless, it's become quite popular among regular diners.

Order the Original Dog and get it with catsup and mustard, the old fashioned way. The Boston comes with caramelized onions and baked beans, and the Taco Dog features taco meat, melted cheese & salsa. Order the Buffalo Dog with buffalo sauce & bleu cheese, the Texan with chili, melted cheese, bacon & jalapenos, or the Ruben with coleslaw, Russian dressing and sauerkraut. Burgers are also on the menu, as are some tasty sandwiches like Chicken Parm, Steak & Cheese, Homemade Meatball and Pulled Pork. Sides include Homemade Onion Rings, French Fries, Chicken Fingers, and Coleslaw.

Devo's Dogs is open every day.

Making a Pie? Here Are the Best Apples for Baking

October 16, 2014 1:05 pm

Not all apple pies are created equal, and a large part of your pie’s taste depends on the type of apples that you use. While some apples lose their flavor, others are simply too tart for a sweet pie. Don’t fret, because this list of the best apples for baking will steer you in the right direction the next time you decide to put your oven to use.

  • McIntosh. McIntosh apples are some of the most popular apples for baking because they have a tender flesh that quickly turns soft and juicy when heated in the oven. They also offer the perfect combination of sweet and tangy tastes, which is essential for a great apple pie.
  • Granny Smith. Granny Smith apples offer a bit more of a bite than most, and their firm texture stays in tact even in heartier recipes. No matter how many other seasonings you use in your dessert, this type of apple can hold its own.
  • Honeycrisp. This lesser-known apple is very large and crisp, which makes it ideal for caramelizing or baking for long periods of time. These apples are often used in tarts or other dishes in which the apples are directly exposed to the heat of the oven.
