Thanksgiving! Celebrity Families Talk Turkey About Their Favorite Dishes (Photos)

Jessica Alba's Favorite?

We all play favorites. And when it comes to Thanksgiving, although the turkey is supposed to be the star of the show, there are the co-stars that we often love even more.  Stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and of course pumpkin pie are just a few of the delicious items that grace our turkey day tables and that hold a soft spot in our hearts and a very special place in our tummies.

Celebrity families, of course, have their own favorites. And it’s a good excuse to indulge in more food than they usually would.  So what are the star mom and dads looking forward to feasting on this year?

Check out these 10 celebrities and their Thanksgiving favorites right here!

    Katie said on Martha Stewart, "my mom started a tradition where she makes these amazing pumpkin bars-almost like a pumpkin cake with cream cheese frosting, but it's not too spicy. In my family we travel so much and we're constantly living in hotels, so my daughter and I have been in the living room of the hotel with powdered sugar going everywhere making this to keep up the tradition. They're really gooey and moist."
