Depends on the recipe, but most often yes. The results just won't be as rich. What are you making?

As long as you're not trying to whip it. If the recipe calls for liquid heavy cream, then half-and-half most likely will be an adequate substitute. If the recipe needs the extra fat from the cream, you could add a little unsalted butter also.

I have often sub'd half and half, but would not go any lower in fat content.

Half n half is fine for most recipes that call for cream. Just keep in mind you do not save hardly any calories by doing that.
