About Sweet C’s

Sweet C’s started in 2010 as a hobby when I was pregnant with my first child and stuck on bedrest from a chaotic job – and turned into a full time job, plus two others!

The Sweet C’s team is a group of 3 women – from across the US – who love food, traveling with friends and our families, and trying delicious dishes from all over the world!

The Sweet C’s Team

Courtney O’Dell, Owner/Founder

I’m Courtney O’Dell, and I want to see and taste everything – I’m a travel obsessed mom who grew up pouring over Martha Stewart cookbooks and went to my first cooking class before I was 6!

I worked in restaurants and at a specialty foods store through my teens and college, and I’ve always been the friend people went to for recipes, even when I worked a chaotic job in politics. I’m so honored to now get to share my recipes with you, my new friends!

I am based in Northern Colorado, on a farm close to the mountains, with my husband and two kids.

Katherine is originally from Fort Collins, Colorado and has a Bachelors Degree in Accounting from CSU. She has been with Sweet C’s since her first son was born in 2005.

Katherine cares for everything to do with the business management for Sweet C’s. She also manages the content production and development.

Katherine loves to cook and is behind the lense of many of our recipes. She currently lives in upstate South Carolina with her husband and four sons. She loved to hike and bike with her family in her free time.

Abi Cross, Producer

Abi is pursuing a masters degree in Occupational Therapy – she loves working with kids, cooking, and travel!

Growing up in Russell, Kansas, Abi was known for her homemade pies – she still gets texts anytime she’s in town from friends asking if Abi’s Pies will take a few orders each visit.

You’ll find Abi on the Sweet C’s facebook and TikTok pages – and behind the lens on some of our tastiest creations!
