Okay, so it's better than the Baywatch Babes Bikini Barbecue, but this batch of recipes wrapped around cute shots of the Friends cast is still pretty crass. Unless, of course, you're a super-duper devotee of the NBC series who can't wait to whip up Joey's Walnut Scones or Chandlers' (Could This Be Any More Fattening?) Cheesecake—then these treats concocted by New York City food editor Bishop and freelance writer Wilson are neato! Find out how to make such stripped-down, city-living dishes as Ugly Naked Guy Nacho Chips and Hummus for Doctors and Other Dates, but readers take heed: If you're basing your diet on a sitcom, you might be watching a pinch too much TV.
