For example, under my page "Seafood" I'd like to have a different sub page for each seafood recipe.

I might even be able to answer this because i just found out mmyself a little while ago.
Go to Dashboard->Pages and and press "ADD". Type in "Seafood" in the title area.
Then on the right sidebar where it says 'parent' just leave that as is because "Seafood" is the parent category. Then save or upload that page.
Now you can create the 'children' (sub-categories) of that parent page. To do that you ADD another new page and give it a name - say "Tuna Mornay".
Now go to the side bar again and this time don't leave it on 'parent' but rather from the dropdown menu select (as its parent) "Seafood" "Seafood" will be in that drop down menu because you have already created that parent page.
So, you have to create the parent page first.
(But not that In the area below where it says "order" just leave that as value "0".)
That button is to specify the order in which you want the menu buttons, for the pages, to appear in the menu bar. (I don't think it applies to subcategories, when there is just one sub-category,eg "Tuna Mornay". But maybe if you had a few equal level sub categories and wanted to control in what ordr they appear. (You might want "fish and chips" to apear after "baked fish", so you might ned that order button for that, I'm not sure on that one.)

Your very welcome, Karen. I'm sure my answer was the long version - whereas the others were probably quicker and more efficient to ge the same result. It also helped me to write and an explaination. You know what they say, that attempting to 'teach' something helps you learn it. Its true. Its a nice community like that, isn't it? that the opportunity to do that - help 'self' and 'other' at the same time is available. Very nice.

I find the easiest way to create sub-pages is to go to "Menu" on your website's dashboard under "Appearance." Then you can drag pages to move them around. To make a sub-page, drag it to the right a bit so it's not evenly aligned with the main page. Then "save" and when you visit the site, you should have sub-pages. (Hope this makes sense.)

You could do this with a dropdown menu. This video should help. https://youtu.be/wVkyfnyRx2Y
