Our friend’s birthday just passed and we attended a potluck party in her honor. Since our friend is just as geeky as we are, it only seemed appropriate to make her something equally geeky. I do not have the gift of creating recipes themed around specific series or ideas, so that was out. Luckily, I have lots of cookbooks that work to feed the inner geek (ha, I made a bad joke).  So I turned to my newest geek cookbook, published in honor of the 50th anniversary of the

Rice Recipe from Manga Cookbook.

I was making sushi rice the other night for some home made maki-absolutely delicious.
