Public Lives, Secret Recipes began as an outlet for Caitlin to combine her love for food & fashion. After taking over her friends Instagram feeds with images of her own homemade goods, she decided it was time for a change. By posting secret recipes from people in the public eye, Public Lives, Secret Recipes allows readers a “taste” of something they would normally not have the chance to access.
