Steve’s Recipe Collection

I love to cook! I learned really early on how to make omelets and french toast. My mom would tell me later on when I was a teenager: “You don’t want to eat with us, then cook it yourself.” So I did! I have several recipes that I’ve found and use today that I want to share on this page. If a recipe resonates with you, then use it or modify it. There are so many cooking sites on the internet, that if you want to know how to cook something, people have posted almost any type of food and beverage, you can find recipes everywhere.

I hope you enjoy these recipes, my chili recipe actually won an award. I’ll share that down below with the recipe for “Steve’s Crock Pot Chili.”

Fish Stew

This is a recipe I’ve kept from my late ex-mother-in-law Marge Wolfe – it’s incredibly easy and really, really good, if you like fish.

1 lb. or more frozen Turbot. (I have a hard time finding Turbot, a mild white fish, so I use Tilapia, and sometimes several varieties of fish including salmon, cod, tuna, halibut, flounder, red snapper. The fish blends work out really nicely.

1 can stewed tomatoes
1 can chopped or minced clams
4 russet potatoes
Add spices to taste. I use a seafood seasoning, pepper, chipotle, and other blends – your choice. I don’t use salt, but you can based on taste.

Cut the frozen fish into cubes, cut while frozen, don’t thaw too much, thawing takes place in the boiling water.

Peel the potatoes and slice to a normal thickness, throw the potatoes into a soup pot, and cover with enough water, plus a little more and bring to a boil – leave boiling until you can pierce the potatoes with a fork and they break apart.

When the potatoes are soft, add the frozen fish cubes, and cook for 10 minutes on low boil.

Then add the whole can of stewed tomatoes and the juice from the can of clams. Save the clams for a little bit. Cook the tomatoes and clam juice for another 10 minutes still on a low boil.

Then add the clams which are left in the can, and cook for another 5 minutes.

Your done – ladle the soup into bowls, add some oyster crackers if you like and just enjoy.
