microREVIEW: Trader Joe's Cinnamon Crumb Coffee Cake Mix

Too sweet. I can rarely ever finish a small piece. The crumb topping is almost entirely sugar, doesn't crumb very well, and overwhelms the rest of the cake. It has what seems like a pumpkin aftertaste. Easy to make.

microREVIEW: Trader Joe's Cajun Style Blackened Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo

This is the first of a series that I call microreviews. I had been posting these to Twitter, but since Google and Twitter started getting all possessive about their content, Tweets disappear in the internether quickly after posting. So I shall put these on an actual page instead.

Good pasta. When microwaved, not rubbery, but a little watery. Chicken doesn't taste microwaved, but tastes a bit overdone. Chicken spice is too mild. Sauce has good kick. It's quick to make, but I feel like everything in it could be made fresh in very little time.
