Many fine and simple meals are based on dairy.  The well-curated pantry includes dairy and non-dairy alternatives that fit one's  preferences.  The SimplyCooking® collection of recipes focuses on simplicity not dietary choices, so the SimplyCooking® Pantry listing covers both traditional and alternative dairy. There is great range in the form these products can take - from pre-grated cheese pouches to raw, local, small batch or vegan based cheeses- and room for experimentation, personal choice based on time and budget.   Here are general comments about the SimplyCooking® list:

•Almond milk substitutes perfectly for cow’s milk in every SimplyCooking®  recipe.  

•In cooking, whole milk  simply produces a superior result to 2% or skim milk.  One benefit of cooking from scratch is achieving a richness and depth of flavor so we're satisfied by eating a smaller portion.

•Coconut milk I've added recently as it provides a creamy quality for soups and desserts. 

•Buttermilk can be substituted by stirring a teaspoon of vinegar or lemon into a cup of whole milk and sitting for a few minutes. 

•There are fine local cheeses almost everywhere.    They make a simple meal extravagant.

•All recipes in the SimplyCooking® recipe collection are made from the SimplyCooking® pantry of ingredients.
