Chris Rolfe, forward / winger, Chicago Fire: What's your favorite way to spend a winter evening? "I tend to hibernate at home and bake. My favorite in the winter is zucchini bread. I use my mom's recipe passed down through the family ? I even have the old recipe card my mom used to use. I buy the zucchini in the summer and freeze it."
