In March 2013, Chili Pepper Magazine featured and reviewed the Meanwhile, Back at Cafe Du Monde... book with Peggy's journey from inspiration to idea to shows to book, plus included 3 of the recipes from the book. In July 2013, Peggy wrote a feature article, "A Slice of Life" for the July Barbecue issue of Chili Pepper Magazine.
