 All of the clues hint to two different words; one that is filled and one that is unfilled.
 The "filled" and "unfilled" words differ by a single letter.
 For example, the first answer is SIP/SHIP.

All the unfilled onigiris are as follows:
SIP
PINT
CURE
BARD
LUNCH
TOLL
WATER
FAULTY
FAST
GARAGE
RELY
BAND

All the filled onigiris are as follows:
SHIP
PAINT
CURVE
BEARD
LAUNCH
TROLL
WAITER
FACULTY
FEAST
GARBAGE
RELAY
FLIGHT
BLAND
 Take the letters that you used to fill the onigiris to get the answer:
 HAVE A RICE BALL
Maki
 Note that the components must overlap. What could this mean?
 Why might "overlap to" be bolded, instead of just "overlap"?
 Every word has overlaps two with the next clue.

The first word and the last words are WIFE and INITIALS

WIFE
FEALTY
TYPE
PETAL
ALPHA
HATE
TELEPATH
THOUGHTFUL
ULTIMATE
TENOR
ORCHESTRA
RAVEN

 Once the crossword is solved, take Katie's suggestion of splitting the roll down the middle!
 ROLL WITH IT
Sashimi
 All sides will add up to 10.
 There is only one possible piece that can fit with the "7" in the middle square (has 4 edges).
 There is only one possible piece that can fit with the "6" in the middle square (has 3 edges, missing bottom edge).
 Once all pieces are assembled, decode the pigpen.
 A RAW DEAL
Temaki
 We know that order 9 only ordered fish. What else do we know about order 9?
 We know that order 12 had yellowtail (last order). What else do we know about order 12?
 We know there are 5 tuna orders total and the only tuna order that wasn’t odd was 10.
 What evidence is there that #1 did not order tuna?
 What evidence is there that #11 did not order tuna?
 The four people in a row with shrimp are 5, 6, 7, and 8.
 Once you have all the directions, use semaphore to decode.
 WHAT A HANDFUL
Nigiri
 What adjectives could be used to describe all the different fingers on a hand?
 For example, the furthest finger to the left on the hand diagram is referred to as the "thumb"
 Find the answers to the clues using the wordsearch; where "finger" in the wordsearch corresponds to the adjectives used to describe the fingers.
 For example, the answers to 1. are "index (finger) card" and "wedding ring (finger)"
 The words used to describe each finger are as follows:
THUMB
INDEX
MIDDLE
RING
LITTLE
 Each clue leads to two answers  the 1st clue is "index" and "middle", which corresponds to 2/3 on the diagram.

 What do the leftover letters from the wordsearch tell you to do?
 IT'S TWO THUMBS UP

 Use the given equations to figure out which letters map to which numbers.
 Equation 2: If two 3digit numbers add to a 4digit number, there is one possible value for the first digit of the 4digit number.
 A = 1
 Equation 1: Since we know A = 1, in equation 1, E+B must add to 11.
 Equation 1: With the carryover from the previous hint, T + R + 1 = R.
 Equation 1: This means that T = 9.

T = 9
R = 8
B = 7
S = 6
I = 5
E = 4
H = 3
W = 2
A = 1
U = 0

 For ease of communicating hints, please number the columns from 112, and the rows from AH
 For all the given parts of the path, we know that the spaces immediately adjacent to them must contain a path (though we don't know where they lead)
 This means that C3/D2, B6/C7, G5/G7, F8/D8, A8/A10, and D11/E12 must contain paths.
 We know E12 must lead from E11 to the end, so that path can be filled.
 Since column 10 only has one path leading through it, we know there's no back and forth between row 10 and row 11.
 This means that the next step runs from E11 to A11.
 We now know that A12 and A811 are filled. This constitutes the six spaces needed for row A. What can we do from there?
 Using the same logic, look at columns 1 and 4. What can you deduce about the path in columns 2 and 3 from them?
 Since we know A7 does not have a path in it, all the rest of the spaces in column 7 must have a path.
