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.

Author: Jennifer

  • 1 1/2 cups warm water 110 to 115 degrees F
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 pkg active dry yeast
  • 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 oz melted butter
  • 10 cups water
  • 2/3 cup baking soda
  • 1 egg yolk beaten with 1 Tbsp water
  • pretzel salt
  • 8 bun-length hot dogs
  1. Combine water, sugar, and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with dough hook. Sprinkle yeast on top and allow to sit 5 minutes.
  2. Add flour and butter. Mix on low speed until combined. Increase to medium speed and knead until the dough is smooth and pulls away from the side of bowl, approximately 5 minutes.
  3. Place dough in well-greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap and a clean dry towel and sit in warm place for 50-60 minutes until the dough has doubled in size.
  4. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and spray with nonstick spray. Preheat Air Fryer to 400 degrees F.
  5. In large stock pot or roasting pan, combine 10 cups of water and the baking soda and bring to a boil.
  6. Place pretzel dough onto an oiled work surface and divide into 8 equal pieces. Roll each piece of dough into an 18-inch rope. Wrap pretzel dough around hotdog, making sure to press the ends together.
  7. One-by-one, place each pretzel dog into the boiling water for 30 seconds. Remove from water and place on parchment-lined baking sheet.
  8. Brush the top of each pretzel with the beaten egg yolk and water mixture and sprinkle with pretzel salt. Place 3-4 pretzels directly into Air Fryer basket and cook 5 minutes at 400 degrees F. Turn pretzel dogs over and cook another 3-4 minutes until dark golden brown.
These Air Fryer Pretzel Dogs are such a fun little recipe. We enjoyed these for a special dinner at our house recently and the kids loved them.

Key to Success #1 – Use a Stand Mixer to Make the Dough
This pretzel dough is super easy to make and uses only a few ingredients. I use it for making traditional Soft Pretzels, Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel Bites, and now for Pretzel Dogs.

To make things easier, you’ll want to mix up the dough with a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook attachment. I have a Kitchenaid 5-Qt Stand Mixer and it’s perfect for this Pretzel dough.

I even let the Pretzel dough rise in the bowl of my Kitchenaid. Just take the dough out of the mixer bowl and clean it well then coat the inside with vegetable oil.

Be sure to turn the dough over in the bowl to coat both sides of the dough with oil.
Key to Success #2 – Wrap Pretzel Dough Around the Dogs
After you divide the Pretzel dough into 8 equal pieces, roll each piece of dough into a rope about 20-24 inches long.

Take the rope of dough and wrap it around the hot dog, pressing the ends of the dough together firmly. Be sure to press the dough together well so that it won’t start to unroll when you’re working with the Pretzel Dogs later.

And I should also say to choose a hot dog variety that you like. I personally like Nathan’s All-Beef Hot Dogs for this recipe but you can use whatever you prefer.

Key to Success #3 – Soda Bath for the Win
The baking soda bath is the key to getting that nice chewy pretzel texture to your Pretzel Dogs. Even with the hot dogs wrapped up in the pretzel dough, you should still dip them into the baking soda bath.

It only takes about 30 seconds in the soda water for each Air Fryer Pretzel Dog. That’s plenty of time to make the Pretzel magic happen.

Key to Success #4 – Don’t Crowd the Air Fryer
When you put the Air Fryer Pretzel Dogs into the Air Fryer, the pretzel dough is going to puff up so you’ll want to leave plenty of room between your ‘dogs.

I have a Cozyna XL 5.8 QT Air Fryer and I put two Pretzel Dogs into my Air Fryer basket at a time. Any more than that and it would be hard to flip the Pretzel Dogs over.

Speaking of flipping, you’ll definitely want to flip your Air Fryer Pretzel Dogs over halfway through cooking. This will allow you to get both sides of your Pretzel Dogs nice and golden brown. Don’t skip this step!

I hope you’ll give this great recipe a shot. Please don’t be intimidated by the Pretzel dough. It’s much easier to manage than you may think.

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.
