A PERFECT Gift for Dad

Looking for a low key, but PERFECT, gift for Dad on Father’s Day  this year?

How about a homemade meal paired perfectly with Sándor’s Petite Sirah?

Nothing says love like a homemade meal accompanied with the perfect wine!

Below is a scrumptious but quick and easy hamburger recipe. To complement the hamburger, add a simple green salad, French fries and of course Dad’s favorite dessert!

Chili-Infused Hamburgers


  • 1 ¼ pound lean hamburger
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1-2 sprinkles of cayenne—very light
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

Makes 4-5 patties


Place hamburger in medium bowl and sprinkle spices over it all. Mix the spices in the meat using your hands. Shape into patties. Heat grill to medium high.   Place patties on grill and cook for 3-4 minutes. Flip the patties and cook an additional 3-4 minutes.

For extra pizazz, add a slice of Pepper Jack just before removing the patty from the grill.

Add Dad’s favorite bun (whole wheat, sesame seeded or Kaiser bun) and serve with Dad’s favorite condiments— like grilled onions, mayonnaise, sliced avocado, ketchup, pickle etc.
