"It depends on if it's an American Thanksgiving, then I'd love some collard greens, some mac and cheese, stuffing and turkey. But if it's a Trini[dadian] Thanksgiving, then I want the same thing I always want, which is curry chicken, roti, oxtails. The same old thing that we always eat." (The Boom Box)

“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.” ("Access Hollywood")

Trust me, I have the strangest taste buds in town and if I say it's good to me, it's gon' be good to all! It may have to just be my mom's though, my mom's sweet potato pie and dressing. I don't know that it works for everybody but my mom's sweet potato pie and dressing together? It's amazing!" (The Boom Box)

Parker's favorite is pumpkin pie from New York's Little Pie Company. She's been ordering them for "10 or 15" years" and typically orders so many that her family "can't fit them anywhere."

“We put them on the floor of the laundry room or in the back of a minivan where it’s cold. We put them outside because they don’t fit in the fridge, and we eat the pies for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. My daughter, Tabitha, goes crazy for them.” (People)

"My favorite thing is my mom's mashed potatoes. They're obscene. There's butter, evaporated milk, cream cheese, something called whipping cream...Ob. Scene. We usually have between 20-30 peeps for Thanksgiving so mom makes a lot to satisfy all tastes: Turkey, baked chicken, ham, crab-stuffed red snapper (Dad only eats fish on the big holidays—I have no explanation for it). One year a cousin brought some random dude. They were so late, we were starving by the time we finally sat down to eat. The random dude insisted on saying grace. He prayed for about 7 minutes and then proceeded to eat the entire tray of Red Snapper. Ever since then, my mom prepares two red snappers so my dad isn't forced to choke someone out at Thanksgiving."

"My mom's candied yams...She's like a gourmet chef, so she's amazing. She has these little mini marshmallows that are roasted on the top that are so good. And you know what the key is about a turkey? Deep-frying it. It's so yummy. It's the way to go." (InStyle)
