Chocolate is sexy. Chocolate is sensuous. Chocolate even produces the same sensation as falling in love does -- or so says one study. Chocolate contains the same naturally occurring chemical, phenylethylamine, that the brain produces in increased amounts when people fall in love.So no wonder chocolate and Valentine's Day go together.Marcel Desaulniers, the chef at the Trellis Restaurant in Williamsburg, Va., and creator of the signature dessert called Death by Chocolate, explains what makes chocolate alluring.

IF THE NORTH CLUB LEVEL LOUNGE AT M&T Bank Stadium is jammed with folks, and it's not football season, it must be for something else Baltimoreans are passionate about -- chocolate. That's what the Health Care for the Homeless fundraiser, the 17th Annual Chocolate Affair, was all about. Trying chocolate. Trying it in every form imaginable, courtesy of almost 60 restaurants, caterers and food purveyors. Each had set up a food station where folks lined up to sample the goods. And, if they really liked something, they could circle back for more.

Rarely do we receive an invitation to a party that we find tantalizing in anticipation, sumptuous in actuality and lip-smacking in memory. Cocktail parties seem tedious, dinner parties boring and brunches tiresome. But a summons to a dessert party is a compelling date with sybaritism.For the host, a dessert party eliminates the problems of the typical buffet. Desserts, carefully planned, are unaffected by temperature and standing time. Punch and champagne enhance sweets, and coffee or tea tempt guests away from alcohol.

Guys can be great. But sometimes there's no one more "simpatico" than a good girlfriend. And good girlfriends can be hard to come by. Even our favorite bunch of girlfriends is about to desert us when HBO's Sex and the City ends in a week and a half. Walker Hayes to the rescue! This 24-year-old Carroll County native returned to B'more a year ago, after a few years in the Big Apple, and found a dearth of girlfriends. All her old school friends were now living elsewhere. "Unless you work in a place with lots of other women, it's really difficult to meet potential friends," Walker notes.

Pricey moderation: Despite economists' concerns, inflation has been moderate for some time -- even for some of the pricier things in life. The people who make Moet & Chandon champagne looked at the cost of several high-priced items and found they were generally stable in 1996. A pound of Teuscher chocolate truffles was $49, the same as in 1995. A Rolex watch that cost $15,900 in 1995 remained at that price.No funny business: If potential customers and clients don't leave messages on your answering machine, maybe it's because you don't sound so hot. That's the suggestion of Home Office Computing magazine, which says to forget trying to be funny or cute, unless it fits the image you're trying to project.

Chocolate. Lots of chocolate. That's the perfect way to ring in the new year. So after the ball drops on New Year's Eve, you can bet I will be celebrating with chocolate truffles - dark-chocolate truffles, raspberry-swirled white-chocolate truffles and hazelnut-and-milk-chocolate truffles. The only choice is whether to blow the entire evening's budget on a tiny boutique box of truffles or to make truffles by the dozen that will cost a few cents each and can be made in about the time that it takes to get in the car and drive to the candy shop.

Olde Philadlphia InnOlde Philadelphia Inn, 9510 Philadelphia Road, White Marsh, 687-5757. There is nothing old or inn-like about the Olde Philadelphia Inn. It is, instead, a large informal shopping center restaurant with a varied menu. The appetizers are strong, but the entrees weak in taste and quality. The homemade onion rings and fried cheese were delicious. The salads that came with dinner were unusually ambitious, but the entrees were uneven. The seafood platter, for instance, featured great scallops, but only a mediocre crab cake and scampi and an unpleasant shrimp salad.
