Default Favorite Engine2 or My Beef with Meat recipes?

I have Rip Esselstyn's two books out of the library right now, the Engine2 Diet and My Beef with Meat. Has anyone tried any of the recipes? I want to decide what to try so I thought I'd see if anyone could steer me towards or away from any of the recipes. If they were good or bad or mediocre, I'd love to hear about it.

I tried some of the recipes from the Beef With Meat book and some were total flops - don't do the "eat balls" recipe - and we hated the things with vegetarian beef crumbles and the fake sausage was disgusting too.
In the E2 book the Lasagna is totally excellent. It has tofu crumbled in it and people thought it was cheese. It has lots of steps and takes lots of time and effort, but it is really good.

I read the books but never tried recipes. I have seen the lasagna and the meatloaf recipe (which I think is on the website actually) come up on online conversations quite a bit.

I have a total crush on Rip and his Daddy. Those two just gotta be the sweetest Vegans

I like the Raise the Roof lasagna. I haven't tried too many others, and none really stood out to me. There's a out of tex-mex but I have other recipes for that stuff that I already enjoy.

Good to know. I thought the eat balls looked yummy, so I'm glad to know they are gross.

Time consuming is not happening until Bunny gets older, but I could make it later.
