Oh man were these good! When I was little my mom had a Japanese friend and whenever we visited with her, she made the best food. These "rice rolls" as I called them were amazing and I use to eat my weight in them I'm pretty sure. Of course, Dan knew this and since he loves to eat Sushi and I go along for the ride and get California rolls, he came up with this fun gift idea. We used Alton Brown's recipe and it is really, super yummy. You can never go wrong with Alton. Seriously.
