Crab Pinwheels l Pretty Handy Girl

Hi everyone! This is Lindi, visiting again from Love Create Celebrate! I’m happy to be here again, this time sharing a quick and easy summer recipe. These Crab Pinwheels are one of my favourite summer appetizers. You will not be disappointed if you make them!

Crab Pinwheels l Pretty Handy Girl

The recipes I share are always two things 1) delicious and 2) easy! This recipe fits right in! If you are a gardener, I know that you are ready to use those fresh herbs that you’ve been growing all summer long. This recipe is the perfect way to use some of that green onion and parsley!

This is the perfect appetizer for all of those summer celebrations, from family reunions, to backyard BBQs, to potlucks. But potlucks don’t end when school starts! I honestly make this appetizer all year long when I have guests over. You will not be disappointed – even my toddler cannot stop eating them (and may have been stealing them off of the tray while I tried to photograph these ones!)


  • 250 ml cream cheese package (at room temperature)
  • 3/4 cup red peppers, finely chopped
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp parsley, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • cayenne pepper, to taste
  • 1 can crab, drained
  • 5-8 large soft tortillas


  1. Mix your cream cheese, red pepper, green onion, parsley, cheddar cheese, cayenne pepper, and crab together until mixed well.
  2. Spread your mixture on the tortillas and then roll them up. Cut slices of tortilla about 3/4″ thick
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes. Serve while warm.

You can serve them cool, but I definitely prefer them baked! This recipe makes at least 40 pinwheels.

It only takes 20 minutes to prepare and cook these lovely appetizers, and your guests will thank you for making them!

If you need a drink to go with them, I shared my favourite Summer drink a couple of weeks ago: The Adult Tropical Slushie!

peanut butter pumpkin dip recipe

Hey there, it’s Melissa from The Happier Homemaker back again and I have something I think you’re going to love this month. I love to cook and I especially love creating fun new recipes in the fall-everything about autumn is so inspiring!

It seems that when September rolls around I start trying to add pumpkin to everything-like my Skinny Pumpkin Spice Latte or  Pumpkin Pie Pancakes!  This tasty fruit dip is the perfect combination of pumpkin flavor with classic peanut butter satisfaction. Serve this peanut butter pumpkin dip with sliced fruit, cinnamon sugar chips, or spread on a muffin or toast for a perfect fall treat.

White Chocolate Cookie bar recipe

Last month we got snowed in here in North Carolina-a whopping 3 whole inches. The day before the snow came I did what every good Southerner does before a snowstorm and stocked up excessively on my milk, bread and eggs.

While I was at the store I thought to myself, if I’m going to be stuck inside with my three boys for a day or two I might as well try a few of those recipes I’ve been storing in the back of my mind.  I loaded up my cart with baking supplies and spent two days testing new recipes. This recipe, for White Chocolate Cookie Bars, was a huge hit with my boys and neighbors and I’m very excited to share it with you today!!


1 box yellow cake mix
1 box instant white chocolate pudding mix
1/4 cup water
3/4 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 cup +1/2 cup white chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large bowl mix cake mix, pudding mix, water, oil, and eggs until well blended.
  • Add in one cup of chocolate chips and combine.
  • Spread mixture in a greased 9×13 baking pan and sprinkle top with remaining 1/2 cup chocolate chips.
  • Bake 25-30 minute until golden brown.
  • Allow to cool before cutting. Makes about 20 bars.
