Not to mention that some people who have to avoid milk, cream, etc. can still have cheese. My nieblings are like that. They are lactose intolorant, but in cheese it's broken down in such a way that it doesn't hurt them.
I have to have lactose free milk, but most cheese and yogurt aren't a problem at all for me. Ice cream is iffy, as is ricotta cheese.

Cheese and yoghurt are fine for me, but ice cream is doom, and I was incredibly happy when the Good Ethnic Boy found me lactose free custard!

With #1 and #3 of my DD's, and #3's husband, dairy format appears to not matter.  All of it must be restricted to very small amounts, or GI distress is felt.

A friend of mine can handle most dairy products, so long as she takes a Lactaid or similar digestive helper for lactose. Not sure if form is a factor, as I've mostly seen it apply to cheese (and she loooooooves cheese), but while she can handle cow milk cheese fine (with assistance), goat milk cheese is an absolute no-go.

You can absolutely make a delicious sauce with cheese or a cheese substitute. But sweetened almond milk will not combine with grated cheese without a roux or some sort of emulsifier. Also, sweet macaroni and cheese is not pleasant.

I bake with almond milk, but I never cook savory items with it. I use coconut milk or dairy milk in cooking.

Oh, that reminds me of one time I made a little whoops in the kitchen.

When I make baked mac, I usually use some sour cream, or greek yogurt (instead of milk) to make it creamier. Once I grabbed some yogurt out of the fridge and didn't realize I'd grabbed the vanilla yogurt, not the plain.

It was quite unpleasant and we ended up ordering a pizza that night.

That's how my brother ended up with a vanilla-crab pie, grabbed the vanilla ready made pastry thingy and his crab filling. Not gonna recomand that.

My mum loves to tell the story of a shy young bride-to-be who decided to attend a cooking class with her soon-to-be mother-in-law.  The class that night was teaching how to make a cheesecake, which - just in case any EHellions don't know - is supposed to be sweet.  Bride volunteered to bring the cream cheese.  She accidentally grabbed the onion and chives variety.  Oops.

(That said, I think a savoury cheesecake would be pretty tasty.)

There are recipes for savory cheesecakes. I made one once a long time ago. I don't remember the details and I'm not a huge cheesecake fan but I think it turned out pretty good. I'm sure recipes abound on the internet.

The thing about the onion/chive flavored cream cheese, though, is that you would never use that in a cheesecake, not because of its flavor, but because it's whipped. You need the actual cream cheese bricks to make a real cheesecake. Then you add whatever flavorings, sweet or savory, according to the recipe, as required.

I once made ancient Roman cheesecake, it was flour mixed with ricotta cheese and with a fresh bay leaf on the base of each bun. Then when it was baked I glazed them with honey.so it was sort of savoury.

Everyone said how well the bay leaves complimented the sweetness.

Dear surveyor,

It was not necessary to jump the 6' gate to access the backyard. Your company had the code for the lock box, which had the house and gate keys in it. I'm sorry you fell and hurt your knee.

Sincerely,

Me
