Bett's Takes Blog
Elizebett was born in the United States to immigrants from Terceira Island in the Azores. Soon after becoming a mom, she wanted to strengthen her family’s connection to their roots by reading bilingual books together, but she struggled to find many options in the U.S. written in European Portuguese. Elizebett decided to write Baking ABC - English / Portuguese for her daughter to combine learning Portuguese with their shared love of baking. And BettBakes was unexpectedly born! BettBakes has grown to offer classes, more books, and virtual teambuilding events--all fueled by a love of baking.
In addition to being a mom, Elizebett is an avid home baker, writer/editor, and instructor. She holds a Masters Degree in Public Administration and has 12+ years of experience in executive leadership, building cultures and teams, and organizational management.
Elizebett is a super fan of the Great British Bake-off (GBBO) television show and has baked all signature challenges in the show’s 11 seasons. She loves to garden and lives in Oregon with her husband and daughter.
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
