After trying lot of commercial cheeses, including Follow Your Heart, which is probably the best, here's what I found: your tastes change after a while, you find that you really CAN survive without dairy cheese, and homemade cheese is the best. Here are the recipes I found I like the best for different things:

For ricotta (substitute for dishes like lasagne) use mashed tofu with chopped parsley, onion powder and garlic powder.

For parmesan try the Soymage vegan parmesan, I think it's really good. (the only commercial sub I like)

For nachos, maybe pizza (I've learned to prefer my pizza with no cheese, just a drizzle of olive oil) and definitely quesadillas, and also really good for grilled cheeze, (this is also taste-tested on omni children and they like it) use this recipe:

Melty Pizza Cheese

Blend really well in blender:

1 cup water
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1/4 c. soymage parmesan (adds a little "kick") optional
2 T. cornstarch
2 T. flour
1 t. lemon juice
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. garlic granules

After blending well place in saucepan, stir over med. heat until thickened. Remove from heat and add:

2 T. water
Optional: 2 T. canola oil

For crackers and such we love Jo's Crock Cheeze, as do lots of other people, with variations. It's in her Vegan Vittles cookbook.
