BettBakes Beginnings


A special thank you to the people in my life who have supported me in making BettBakes a reality: my husband Justin, my mãe Maria, my cousin Nancy, and my family and friends who have offered encouragement or purchased books.

I also want to acknowledge the community-minded people and businesses who have uplifted, promoted, or supported my one-woman operation. An asterisk (*) designates a BettBakes distributor: Azorean Green Bean - Maria Lawton | LiveLuso | PALCUS | Portugalia Marketplace* | Tribuna Portuguesa
