How To Convert Image To Word On Android Phones

How to Convert Image to Word onAndroid PhonesLong gone are the times where the only way to digitize something written on paper was to retype it on a computer. That was a really painful and time-consuming process. 
Just imagine students with hundreds of notes and study materials trying to digitize them all. Or stay at home moms trying to digitize their recipes so they wouldn't have them laying around the kitchen in a paper form. You could also imagine the struggle of a businessman trying to digitize tons of reports or other financial documents.

  5. Preheat Air Fryer at 400 degrees F. In batches, place frozen mozzarella sticks into greased Air Fryer basket. Set timer for 3 minutes. Use spatula to flip mozzarella sticks and cook another 2-3 minutes until crispy. 
Recipe Notes
Serve with marinara sauce. 

Key to Success #1 – Slice Your Own Mozzarella
If you absolutely must, you can use prepackaged mozzarella cheese sticks but I think the blocks of mozzarella cheese are much more delicious. Somehow, it seems fresher

To cut a block of mozzarella cheese, use a sharp knife like this one that has a flat blade. One benefit of this blade style is that even sticky foods like cheese will not stick to it.

Cut the block into 8 even pieces, about 1/2-inch thick. Then cut each piece in half again on the broad side.

Key to Success #2 – Double Dip Them
To cook Mozarella Sticks in the Air Fryer, it’s important to make sure the cheese is completely covered. First, dip the mozzarella into flour , coating it well. Then dip into the egg mixture. Finally, press the mozzarella stick into the bread crumbs, making sure the cheese is completely coated with the bread sticks.

I’ve found that starting with flour is a really good way to get the rest of the coating to stick. I also tried dipping with eggs – bread crumbs – egg – bread crumbs, but I lost a lot of the bread crumbs during the second egg dip.

Key to Success #3 – Freeze Before (Air) Frying
It’s very important to freeze the Mozzarella Sticks before you cook them in the Air Fryer. If you don’t freeze them, a lot of the cheese will leak out into the base of the Air Fryer before the coating gets crispy.

You can use any freezer-safe tray to freeze your Air Fryer Mozzarella Sticks. A lot of times I use my cutting board when I’m flash freezing something. I have a side-by-side fridge and freezer and a lot of my baking sheets will not fit in the freezer.

The main thing is to freeze the Mozzarella Sticks so that they are not touching one another. It would be a good idea to set them on waxed paper or parchment paper before freezing so that they don’t stick to the tray.

These Air Fryer Mozzarella Sticks turned out great. Everyone loved them.

Nokia 8 Sirocco Review: Hands-on

Nokia 8 Sirocco Review: Hands-on

There’s something of a lack of new flagship smartphones at MWC 2018 but Nokia has plenty of new devices to feast your eyes on, including a sleek handset to rival the Galaxy S9. Here’s our Nokia 8 Sirocco hands-on review.
You would assume that Nokia’s new flagship would be one of the biggest smartphones (in terms of importance) to be unveiled at MWC but Huawei and LG have delayed their respective 2018 devices. So it’s a case of Nokia vs Samsung vs Sony.
Although a Nokia 9 was a possibility, the firm has actually announced the Nokia 8 Sirocco which is quite a radical phone for HMD – the company with the rights to the Nokia brand. For now, this is the Nokia 9.

Let’s face it, sometimes old things are cooler than new one and although the Nokia 8110 4G is technically a new phone, it’s another example of the firm bringing back a classic.
Following the Nokia 3310, this is the second ‘retro classic reloaded’ and although it’s been 22 years, the Nokia 8110 is back.
