I still know all of the lyrics from Michelle Branch's "Everywhere" from her 2001 platinum selling album, The Spirit Room. She followed up that release with her 2003 album, Hotel Paper. When she and Nashville singer/songwriter Jessica Harp decided to part ways after forming the country music duo The Wreckers, Michelle released a personal EP, Everything Comes and Goes, in August 2010.

While she's currently in the studio in Los Angeles working on an album, I suspect she's also finding time to make her delicious Spiced Mexican Wedding Cookies.

Michelle shared these cookies for our Celebrity Cookie Swap because they bring back memories: "Every Christmas my mom, my sister, Nicole, and I would make cookies for our Christmas cookie exchange. This one was always a favorite. As children, my sister and I had the perfect little hands to roll these quickly into balls. Don't wear black and try to sneak a bite of these, as they leave substantial evidence, aka powdered sugar everywhere!" Everywhere, indeed.
