Long time mac-and-cheese expert

Favorite Tillamook products: Medium Cheddar. It's the only item I have in my fridge 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. That's no exaggeration.

Favorite way to eat Tillamook: I like cheese straight from the loaf. Although my earliest recollection cooking with Tillamook Cheddar was homemade mac-and-cheese. My mom was going through breast cancer treatments when I was in my early teens and she taught my sister and me how to make a few easy dinners for ourselves. Mac-and-cheese was one of them. There's nothing like cheese sauce from scratch, and Tillamook is the only cheese I'll use.

Hobbies & Interests: Travel, the outdoors, taking advantage of Portland's awesome food scene, daydreaming about living overseas, going to outdoor concerts, DIY and crafts, househunting, and trying to keep up with a 1-year-old.
