Welcome to Eat Picks®!
My name is Kelly Pugliano and I am the cook, baker, photographer, and storyteller of this space on the web. I am located in Northern VA | DC area, where I live with my husband. We are proud parents of 2 grown kids, who we miss every day. I love to travel, especially where good food can be discovered.

I worked in the corporate insurance world for longer than I care to admit then moved into non-profit association work, where I became a meetings & conference event planner, a job I found to be both extremely challenging and rewarding.
After being laid off in 2009, I took up blogging and never looked back. I've always enjoyed writing and this was the perfect platform. After 3 years of sharing “Mom-Stuff”, I realized my kids were older and recipes were taking over as the main content. Tired of receiving pitches for diapers and baby toys, it was time to rebrand my old site, Mom Got Blog into a new space to share my passions for good, simple, food and my love of photography; in 2012, Eat Picks® was born.
Our most popular recipe this year: Easy Chicken Pot Pie!
A Little About Kelly
I love to cook, bake, eat, write and take pictures of food. Coffee is a must every day and I will always make time for a good craft brew or glass of wine. The kitchen is my happy place; here I discover new flavors and keep traditional family favorites alive and well to pass on to the next generation.
I was the Cooking School Coordinator at a local boutique kitchenware store, The Spoon & Whisk, where I worked with local chefs and culinary school instructors to create interesting menus, write and publish our registration brochure and oversee each class. Not only am I surrounded by food, but I also worked in the best place to learn about every gadget on earth!
I also launched and ran a successful subscription box/gifting business called Roost Crate™, a “farmers market in a box” delivered to your door for four amazing years before retiring in 2019. This shift allows me to focus more on our food blog which has been wonderful!
Eat Picks Gives Everyone Confidence in the Kitchen
I believe everyone can cook, even if they think otherwise, so all recipes shared on this site will be easy to follow and fun to cook whether you are a novice or master chef. You can look up any recipe in our Recipe Index to get started.
Food is a common denominator between all of us. Instant conversation can begin by asking where to find the best pizza in town or what is a favorite flavor ice cream.
It is a connector.
Eat Picks® was created to connect you with easy, delicious recipes to give you culinary confidence in the kitchen.
