By far the most unexpected addition to my resume is that of “published recipe developer.” My first two recipes were designed for agency client King’s Hawaiian and was utilized in their 60th anniversary recipe booklet. The booklet is available for FREE online at www.kingshawaiian.com and my recipes for Sweet Bread Dessert Sushi and Paradise Pudding Puffs are below:

Ingredients
• 1 (12 pack) King’s Hawaiian Original Sweet Rolls
• 2 (3.5 oz.) pudding cups

Preparation
1. Separate rolls by slicing gently with a bread knife.
2. Peel off the outer browned crust from the top and sides of the refrigerated King’s Hawaiian rolls.
3. With a small knife create a finger-width hole in one side (not top or bottom) of the roll.
