Thank you for visiting Aninas Recipes, my very own little space where I can share my culinary adventures with the world.  This really isn’t your normal food blog.  As a matter of fact, this little sharing space has become a recipe portal, filled with easy recipes, mouthwatering photography and my own take on food styling.

Every day food becomes all-you-can-think-of food, and that’s about my purpose here!



My blog paints a picture of utter passion for great fresh produce, quality ingredients and wonderful flavours and aromas (and maybe a few awesome products as well) – all whipped up and mastered from my rather inadequate little kitchen in Johannesburg and photographed in my own comfy home studio.

My name is Anina, an amateur turned pro recipe developer, blogger, food stylist, photographer, cook, sometimes baker and entertainer if you like.  Yes, despite what you might think, I have no formal culinary background as such, but had to quickly learn the ropes when I jumped head first into the family Cake Shop.  The rest is history…

I am honored to share my crazy, free and dynamic personality through my food with you.  Thanx for stopping by, grab your aprons, get cooking, and let me know how it went!





I really love what I do and it has become not only a passion but a way of income, which I am truly grateful for. So, my content, recipes and images are my own and if you would like to use any of the lip smacking stuff you see here, please get in touch through my contact page up screen. Good?

I’m also happy to collaborate with like minded, talented food enthusiasts – let’s brainstorm!
