Cucumber Goat Cheese Dip With Radishes and Scallions

Now that spring is almost here and green is taking over the week... I thought I would share a simple fresh and easy cheese dip. Easy and fast and fit to eat with crackers or dip veggies.
Plus you get to make cucumber is fun to make and adds great flavor to the dip.
If you have extra cucumber water it can be used to add to a citrus mint drink or even to spice up a martini...just in case you have had enough green beer. 
 The combination of radishes, cucumber, and mint pair well with the tangy goat cheese.
I forgot to take a picture of the dip with all the lovely veggies. We had good friends over, and I got side tracked with great conversation and watching the little kids giggles. Lets just say the dip was a hit and just the right thing to share to celebrate  the beginning of spring.

Lucy's Chocolate Minis

I have no idea who Lucy is and I don't care. What I do care about is chocolate, sugar and eggs. And I really care that Lucy's lovely minis come together so quick and easy... (while the baby is napping type of easy and fast.) Plus minis are so cute and so much fun to eat... and portion controlled (if you can eat just one.) 

Added some candied pecans and sour cherries to the tops of a few to spice things up.
Melting the butter and chocolate....two other delicious things to care about.
I suggest you care about Lucy's Chocolate Minis too.
