I've been making cheese lately and have all of this whey left over. Seems like a pitty to let it go to waste.

You can make whey ricotta, http://www.seriouseats...
While many modern recipes call for milk, traditionally ricotta is made of whey. The yield is slightly lower, but the taste and consistency are far closer to the real thing.It’s also a great used as a substitution for water when baking, especially bread.

Whey is amazing for braising tough cuts of meat!!!
In Bulgaria, we have this drink called ayryan. It's made from just yogurt and water. I myself use whey instead of water - adds up some more protein. We season it with salt and pepper. It goes best with fried foods. :))

A couple of years ago when my dog was being treated for lymphoma, I read an article about whey and canine cancers. I made lots of ricotta during that time and whey into his food. NO scientific proof that it had any effect, but at the very least, he loved it and we enjoyed the fresh ricotta.
I make caramelized whey (which tastes like salted caramel). The "recipe" is on my blog at: http://butterysaltedcaramel.wordpress.com/2014/06/16/caramelized-whey/. I also make whey sorbet which makes for a simple dessert when paired with fresh fruit.
