New takes on old favorites arrive in time for Super Bowl parties

Amanda Stone: Slow cooker frees up spare time
But many slow-cooker recipes include canned cream-of-whatever soup or boxed mixes. Your slow cooker does most of the work for you, so these canned soups and mixes aren't necessary for a successful meal.
